by Modculture 27 November, 2009

There's something very 'Jackie O' about this Paul Smith 60s-style A-line coat.

It's a woven fuchsia wool blend A-line shape coat, double breasted and with oversized buttons, along with a crew neckline, raglan sleeves, curved seam pockets and a lining in red and navy fabric. In terms of length, the hem finishes just below the knee.

Not cheap though, it sells for a fairly hefty £449.
