Soïa & Kyo is the fashionista’s answer to the warmth-versus-style debate. Born and raised in cosmopolitan Montreal, founding designer Ilan Elfassy launched his label as a women’s outerwear brand in 2004, adding men’s styles in 2010. Distinguished by huge buttons, high stand-up collars, and slanted zippers, Soïa & Kyo’s collection of modern, masterfully assembled jackets and coats seamlessly blends form and function. Waterproof yet ultra-chic double-breasted trench coats, puffers with plush down fills and built-in arm warmers, packable anoraks, hooded raincoats, and classic leather jackets feature meticulous tailoring and flattering cuts. Fun fact: Elfassy’s brother Eran is the man behind the luxury outerwear label Mackage. Warm, stunning coats run in the family.
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.
