With winter 2017/2018 bringing real-deal frosty temperatures, a good option for staying cozy is always Norma Kamali‘s iconic Sleeping Bag Coat. Each season the New York-based Kamali provides updated version of the famed coat and this year’s collection includes a chic velvet version.
While puffer jackets are very much a look du jour, Kamali came up with her design in the mid ’70s while on a camping trip. Made to be lightweight and packable, the coat has been worn by style greats including Rihanna, Solange Knowles and André Leon Talley among others.
Kamali’s famed coat has made enough of a mark on the fashion landscape that a version of it is included in MoMa’s “Is Fashion Modern Exhibit.”
