In the winter, nothing makes better sense to me than a big black coat. I like them double-breasted to keep the wind out, long enough to not have to wear long underwear, and belted, not only to keep myself from growing into my oversize clothes, but also to keep my stomach warm. This vintage Yohji Yamamoto piece features the most graceful rounded shoulders, almost like a relaxed Balmain, that play off well with the cinched waist and the full skirt. The subtle artistry of Mr. Yamamoto is not lost in this large, cozy, portable home of a coat.
