In 1988, Mark Badgley and James Mischka captivated the fashion press with Badgley Mischka, their refreshing line of high-glamour gowns. The designing duo — partners in life as well as in business — continues to enthrall reporters, bloggers, and runway audiences with peerless, distinctive eveningwear, everyday separates, bridal dresses, outerwear, handbags and accessories, eyewear, and shoes. Badgley Mischka's women’s outerwear collection includes classic beige trench coats reinterpreted with leather trim accents and tortoiseshell buttons, warm wool mid-lengths livened up with asymmetrical front ruffles or lace accents, shimmering quilted sateen jackets, and topcoats made of eclectic, luxurious materials (the metallic Ingrid brocade coat, for example). With roomy pockets, top stitching, lamb-fur linings, and other details, Badgley Mischka coats are as practical as they are stylish.
Bundling up for fall has never been chicer, thanks to the surge of standout coats that make for bona fide conversation-starters. And since you don't want to be left out in the cold, now is the perfect time to make that all-important investment in outerwear. Made-to-be-seen coats played starring roles in nearly every Fall '14 collection — from patchwork shearlings at Prada to technicolor parkas at Alexander Wang — so there's no need to be relegated to the seas of standard black puffers this season.
