It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that my early spring thoughts include The Row’s most recent collection, and especially look 8. The masculine classic silhouette gets a modern update with a balaclava, and the coat is close to perfection. Speaking of coats, I’m currently sourcing for new ones for Mies; there will be a selection of leather available soon for spring, but also I’m searching for long black cashmere coats, which are my most requested ones.

Wearing sandals and coat from Céline by Phoebe Philo and trousers from Chanel spring 2009, all vintage 

I’ve been sourcing vintage- and second hand coats since last year and slowly starting to be ready with the first selection, which will be available at Mies this fall. I wanted to have at least one Céline coat by Phoebe Philo to offer and after a long search I found this worker blue, light wool and cashmere mix coat. It’s so exquisite I almost want to keep it for myself. I would love to pair it also with classic jeans and navy sweater, there’s something intriguing in mixing different shades of blue.

Anyway, I chose this coat as it represents well Philo’s era at Céline, while also describing perfectly the style of Mies woman; silent, simple but powerful.

I’ve been working on this exciting project for a while now and finally I’m able to reveal it. I’m launching soon a shop for vintage coats! You can follow more updates and get some inspiration at @mies_vintage instagram account.

Over the years I became quite good hunting vintage pieces, and I think it’s definitely key to a more sustainable wardrobe. And when it comes to coats, maybe it’s a Scandinavian thing, but to me a coat is the most important piece of an outfit most of the year, and with good materials it can last for decades. I wanted to put my skills in use and started to create a beautiful selection of great quality coats for everyone who doesn’t have time, or even access to browse the best vintage boutiques.
