Zara, haute couture-style coats for women.
By taking inspiration from haute couture while proposing affordable prices, Zara, the Spanish label that needs no introduction, has managed to bring luxury within everyone's reach through its collections of clothes and accessories on the cutting edge of fashion. Big winter hits, Zara's ladies' coats come in different versions with cuts of all descriptions, from capes to puffa jackets, to trench coats and reefer jackets.
Coats that are the talk of the town.
Given how successful Zara is across the globe today, it is difficult to imagine that back in the early 1970's, the company was making clothes in just a tiny workshop located in Galicia. It was around that time that Amancio Ortega Gaona, the founder, revolutionised the ready-to-wear sector by adopting a simple, but ingenious concept: drawing inspiration from the models presented on the haute couture catwalks to create clothes within everyone's reach. With new lines each month and no restocking, Zara items have a certain air of exclusivity about them. That approach, which has also contributed to the label's success, brings women's ready-to-wear by Zara a little closer to the world of luxury, even if Zara offers unbeatable value for money.
Each year, Zara coats are all the rage and certain pieces even find themselves centre stage in the media spotlight. It was especially the case for the famous medium-length navy blue and white coat, launched in 2016 and channelling Chanel. Having gone viral on social media, the model costing less than €80 sold out in no time at all. Checked capes inspired by the collections of Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry-style shearling coats, military capes borrowed from the rails of Hermès and outsized coats adopting the lines of Stella McCartney designs: with Zara, the models admired on the catwalks find themselves on the street, and become real fashion phenomena.
Zara, the chameleon.
One of the keys of Zara's success is the constant renewal of its collections, with designers ceaselessly adjusting the models based on the sales figures for each item. Thus, Zara is very responsive in bringing its lines of clothing for women out in different versions, for different seasons and changing weather, but also in view of feedback from followers of the brand. Puffa jackets for cold weather, raincoats if it is wet, parkas if that is what trends dictate, a new reefer jacket if other similar models have sold well, or duffle coats if that is what fashionistas are asking for: there is a huge choice of Zara coats and the offer is perfectly suited to the needs of the moment.
Reminiscent of the designs of the leading couturiers, Zara coats fill the wardrobes of women who want to treat themselves to luxury at affordable prices. Classic, modern or eccentric lines, there are myriad versions to adapt to the style of each and every one of us. Among the most popular models, the following are worth a mention:
