Little Luxuries – The Perfect Winter Coat

Soia and Kyo down coat. Now I just laugh at the weather.

Now I just laugh at the weather.

Having a winter coat that is thoroughly warm and weatherproof is an absolute necessity if you plan to step outside of your house during a Canadian winter.

Finding one that keeps you cozy and dry AND is also beautifully designed is a little luxury.

Montreal company Soia & Kyo manages to perfectly combine function and fashion to make my dream outerwear for snowy days. They are on the pricey side for me but luckily the styles are classic enough that you can wear them for years.

I love that their women’s coats are actually designed for women’s bodies. Even the warmest, down-filled ones like mine manage to avoid falling into the Michelin Man trap. AND the pockets on mine are fleecy and instantly warm up my cold little paws.

The best feature on this one though, has to be the huge hood. I used to get staggeringly irate at my old winter coat because the hood wasn’t at all functional. Any gust of wind would blow it off my head, leaving my poor ears to freeze and give me a horrible headache.

Not so, this bad boy. The huge hood snaps up over the collar (which handily zips up to cover your nose) and then it can be tightened around your face so that only your pretty peepers are left exposed!

Now if only I could find a stylish pair of goggles…

    Sigh, I’ve always wanted a nice, long, warm winter coat, but for some reason I never bought one. And now I live in LA, so it’s useless. This one is SO pretty, I love that big hood.

      Is an idea coat anything like a dream coat?…perhaps an amazing one? Done in technicolour?” It’d suit you.

    I love it! I have a couple peacoats which are fine if the weather doesn’t go below -5, and a drug-dealer-slash-Michelin-Man downy coat that’s oh so warm but makes me look like, well, a drug dealing tire mascot. Nice find! Great colour too!

  • Darlene says:

    hi, i’m contemplating on buying the black version of this coat online but not sure of their sizing. can you tell me how you find their sizing?

    • metamorphocity says:

      Hey Darlene,

      I found it to be pretty true to their sizing chart. Though I’d say if you’re on the cusp to go a size up in case you want to wear a bulky sweater underneath as they are quite tailored/fitted.

Follow me around, why dontcha?
