Speaking to Vogue Runway, Sarah Burton described her AW18 Alexander McQueen collection as ‘a soft armour for women’. By wrapping yourself up snugly in the wool and cashemre of this coat, you are, indeed, shielding out the cold. Tailored to fit the small of your waist and jut out slightly at the epaulette laden shoulders, it’s sharp up top but, true to the Creative Director’s word, relaxes into a bright, fringed hem that falls scarf like to one side.Alexander McQueen wool blend coatExposed button fastening at frontNotch lapels, buttoned epaulettes at shoulders, long sleeves, buttoned tab at cuffs, double breasted, tailored fit, two flap pockets at front, draped panel at front, half belt at back, contrasting stripe at hem, fringed edges, asymmetric hem, fully lined77% wool, 22% cashmere, 1% nylon; lining 100% cuproDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 40"Model is 6ft and wears a size 8Made in Italy
