Mackage Spring 2009 Coats

Even though there's a fresh light covering of snow outside, the previous few days of warmer sunny weather is telling me that Spring is just around the corner! I hope this means I can put away my thicker wool and cashmere coats soon; it definitely means that I can start looking for a lighter spring coat though :-). Mackage coats have a sort of military-inspired feel to them and I have never seen a piece that hasn't reflected both a use of quality fabrics and an extraordinary attention to detail.

Designers Eran and Elisa design and manage their company out of Montreal, Canada (..my home and native land!). A cute tidbit: the name "Mackage" was actually inspired by a mispronunciation of the french word for make-up "Maquillage".

Bloomingdales and Revolve Clothing carry some Mackage pieces, but SSENSE definitely carries the widest variety of Mackage coats. Mackage also sells their current collection on their website. My favourites from their Spring 2009 Collection:

Mackage Abby Grape Leather Jacket C$660


Mackage Jules Black Coat C$530


Mackage Jules Birch Coat C$530

  14. Anon. you can look up stores that sell it in your area on the Mackage website.

    I haven't bought a Mackage coat yet but have heard that their sizing is a little smaller? I've gotten jeans from revolveclothing and SSENSE without trying them on because they have a free return/exchange policy.
