Mycra Pac Designer Wear 'Donatella' Travel Coat
not what I expected
I have a similar coat in the shorter version and thought that this could be both travel ready and more dressy, especially because it is reversible. It appeared to have a fluid grace. When it came, it was heavier and more regid than I expected, perhaps because of the flocking. Also, on the model it comes to below knee or calf length, but I found that although I am 5'6" in bare feet, it came almost all the way down to my ankles! Since it is reversible, alterations wouldn't be easy.
There's nothing like a good coat to make a woman look pulled together instantly. I wore this to an evening performance of Mozart and received two compliments, one from a respected shopanista who threatened to "steal it" from me. Very distinctive garment. I am considering buying more of these Mycra-Pac coats.
Elegant & Very useful
I love this coat. I was at a function at the Art Institute and had more people, women and men come up to me complimenting the coat. Even on the street, strangers stopped to compliment me. I have yet to wear the solid reverse side, as I love the scroll pattern. The carry bag that accompanies the coat for storage while traveling is so cute it could pass as a
tote bag. The collar becomes a very discreet hood.
this coat is really beautiful and I received compliments from literally everyone who saw me in it. It definitely runs big so best to size down, although the sleeves were a tad short for me then. It is very long - I am 5'10' and the size 1 is longer on me than in the photo - if you are short this might appear too voluminous on you. It is going to be fantastic for travel.
