Beat the Cold with High Couture Coats and Boots

A Norwegian friend always says, “There’s no bad weather, only wrong clothing.” Breeze through winter in comfort and style this year by wrapping yourself in one of these warm, couture coats from some of Park City’s hottest boutiques, and kick it up another notch with chic boots and shoes from Double Diamond Shoes.

Grace Clothiers is aptly named—owner Laura Montecot-Fruth hand selects collections from New York and European designer markets to bring impeccably crafted pieces to Park City. “I love fashion,” says Montecot-Fruth, “the way it can express the inner beauty of a person.” Two of her favorite coats this year are from, a Madrid-based couture line known for fitted jackets and coats. Th e AB Classic has an equestrian fl air and is made from “Gnu Fabric” that resembles leather. Greet winter with grace and fl air in a fox-trimmed tweed coat, a ruggedly elegant style that’s great with boots and jeans.

A fixture on Park City’s Main Street since 1988, Hilda’s offers a wide range of clothing and accessories for men and women in high quality natural fabrics from popular and off-the-beaten-path designers. Destined to be a favorite for this season is a fox fur trimmed cashmere cardigan coat from Kinross Cashmere available in navy, black, charcoal, dove and mink.

Panache offers the latest fashion trends and contemporary women’s clothing by Brunello Cucinelli, Current/Elliott, Diane von Furstenburg, Elizabeth and James, Equipment, Goldsign, Haute Hippie, Henry Cuir, Mille, Mother, TSE and Thomas Wylde. Give your winter wardrobe an instant infusion with the Apparis “Sophie” Faux Fur in camel or the Uma Satin Tech Down Jacket, featuring an asymmetric hem, full lining and a faux-fur trimmed hood.

In 1935, Manuel Hernandez learned the fur trade from a German entrepreneur in Puebla, Mexico. Decades and generations later, grandson Marcus carries on the role of master furrier at Sitka Fur Gallery, overseeing every aspect of creation, from developing patterns and styles for men and women, to curating sources for fine furs. Th e reversible White Mink Bomber Jacket features a hood trimmed in Shadow Fox, reversible to an olive microfiber liner. The timeless Empress Chinchilla with its bold coloring and soft texture was a show-stopper at Park City Fashion Week, and the American Lynx Stroller is also a very popular style. The men’s Toscana Lamb Shearling coat by HiSo features soft , supple, hand-finished pelts that are lightweight and designed with tailored European cuts.
