I love everything about merino wool. With Woolmark focusing on such a sustainably conscious, renewable fibre, I find it comforting knowing that my most lived in pieces are also great for the planet. This traditionally utilitarian fabric just got updated and modernized with the new Woolmark x 3.1 Phillip Lim collaboration featuring this incredible oversize puffer coat and cropped turtleneck sweater. I fell in love with the collection’s use of plaid and textures. It will always remind me of my winter travels. Cozy rainy days in Montreal. Long weekends in a cabin in upstate New York. Escaping to the ski slopes of Lake Tahoe. This dreamy coat is something I throw over everything. It being reversible is also a major plus in my book! The Merino Series features the most innovative fabrics and yarns, creating a super chic collection that also keeps me extra warm. This may just be the perfect winter color palette. A mix of nudes, hunter greens, and grays. Take a peek through the series. It will immediately make you want to pack it all up and take a weekend breather somewhere out in the woods. I live for that warm and nostalgic feeling I get every single Christmas.
Remember those Woolrich vintage blankets you’d find on your grandmother’s couch? The heavy plaid blankets? Some red and blue. Others white, with the red, yellow, and blue stripes? They’re ultimate suburban classics. A staple in American TV history as it was somehow always the defining piece in every living room scene, simply thrown over a couch. I still have some stored in my closet for those really cold winter nights in New York City. But it’s the rare vintage Woolrich coats I still see sometimes at General Front St. Store in Dumbo I love, with the same classic colors and prints. Woolrich has collaborated with Woolmark, one of the best maker’s in wool, to recreate a vintage classic, fully updated. It’s seriously the softest, most luxurious wool coat ever. It’s so rare I find a wool that feels so incredible on my skin. No itching at all. I’m all about an off-white on white ensemble, even in the winter. My pals at Free People found this white jumpsuit at a sample sale, and it’s exactly what my mom in the 70’s would have had. Perfection. Here’s to keeping warm with a classic take on something all of America grew up with.
