Description

Who made my clothes?

Your coat was made by Helma & Andrea. Helma developed the paper pattern and Andrea sewed this parka. Both Helma and Andrea are independent tailors living in The Netherlands.

Why was my coat designed?

This parka emerged from my personal need to have an interseasonal coat with lots of volume. Perfect for layering during chilly winter months and during warmer summer days it’s light weight fabric moves loosely around your body and looks great with rolled up sleeves and a sharp pair of sunglasses.

Wear & Care

You might have noticed the small buttons on the inside of your coat. These counter buttons are not as useless as you might think, they hold the bigger buttons in place which reduces the chance of them falling off. Don’t worry if this ever does happen, since we included a small mending kit to your purchase. If you still manage to loose all buttons and don’t feel comfortable about mending your own garment, come by the studio and we will do it together. We should all take better care of our clothes, and we are happy to help you with that.

 

The fabric that we used for this coat is not waterproof, only slightly water-repellent. The sleeves are constructed in a way that there are no seams on top of your shoulder which will help keep the first drops of rain out. Having said that, we still suggest you to leave the house prepared since these smart design choices are no replacement for an umbrella.

 

When caring for this garment we would like to share 3 valuable rules: Take your coat to the dry cleaners, store it on a broad-shouldered hanger and avoid mossy park benches since they leave nasty stains and we have not yet met the grandmother with the perfect remedy. 

Colour note:

For this Lilac parka we recommend combining it with softer tones such as beiges, greys and whites. If you are looking for a richer contrast we suggest vibrant colours such as poppy orange and emerald green to reinforce this pale shade of Lilac. 

Measurements

Our garments tend to fit large and oversized. If you usually wear an M, L or XL, we recommend you order our size L. If you are short and petite, we recommend that your order the size M. Ilga and Rachel (the fierce ladies in the picture) are both wearing a size L, yet their body heights vary between 169-173cm.

According to traditional sizing our coat in size L would be considered too big for Ilga (the one with the grey hair), but we think it looks perfect!

Walking around with lots of wavy fabric is exactly the look that we are going for.
