Coat Envy

Lia Lintern specializes in custom-fitted coats that flatter and accentuate the feminine form. The beautiful coats are constructed from luxurious cashmere and wools accented with rare and intricate detailing. The fit is spot on since each coat is custom-made using your bust, waist, hips, and arm length measurements. They aren't cheap (less than $1,000), but when you consider all the quality and work involved they seem worth the price. Another interesting fact - the designer, Julia Lintern, is also an aerospace engineer at JetBlue. Talk about combining your talents!

These are the most beautiful coats!! I'm not all that surprised that she's an aerospace engineer. It seems fitting.

Oh they're divine. I would love to live somewhere, where I could wear a coat.... like to work or out on the town. It just does not get cold enough here in Brisbane. ....and they're too beautiful for cold climate back packing! A-M xx

The second coat is seriously to die for! Although a custom fitting would mean I probably couldn't indulge in midnight burritos anymore...

Lauren K said...

...and hair envy. What a gorgeous color that woman has!

Courtney said...

The coats are absolutely gorgeous, as are the accompanying photographs! A custom coat sounds so incredible. Oh, and I am dually impressed that the designer is also an aerospace engineer! That is a woman with talent.

DESIGN DIG said...

Wow! That is insane..an engineer and designer?! So cool!

Grace@PoeticHome said...

Oh my goodness - those coats take my breath away! Considering that most designer coats run from $500 - $1000, I would much rather have a custom designed one any day! Plus, her photo styling is superb. Who knew engineering and fashion design could produce such beauty?

Joyce said...

I love her style! I sure could use one of those coats today!

i.d. said...

I'm so happy to see some daring, well-cut coats! What a lovely way to spruce up in wintertime. (I've got my eye on that purple one in particular...)

And thank you for the lovely words of encouragement - they mean a lot! x

citysage said...

Wow---a coat designer AND an aerospace engineer? who would've thunk it? it would be SO cool to pick her brain and learn how one pursuit influences the other...

lisamarie said...

I love the white coat! As I am in San Francisco and it is 70 degrees in January, I'm not sure I will need a wool coat for a while. I hope the cold weather hits us soon, I love winter fashion and layering.
