NEW YORK — With spring right around the corner, outerwear makers are gearing up for balmier dressing.

And as more designers and brand names offer spring coats, traditional outerwear firms are retaliating with more options.

  • Cinzia Rocca is layering on feminine pieces, including floral suits and a few dresses.

  • Pirelli is launching a P. Zero sportswear collection this spring.

  • Harvé Benard had added on a heaping of girlish separates with a more updated look.

  • Bogner Sport had rounded out its spring collection with a hooded windbreaker, hoodies, a floral polo, pinstripe pants and a zip-front, striped cardigan. For its Fire + Ice line, a pleated skirt, a V-neck sweater, a hooded sleeveless dress and bikinis are in the mix. Sonia Bogner’s spring collection is packed with ruffled blouses, ladylike suits, embroidered coats, floral pleated dresses and other feminine touches.

  • Anne Dee Goldin is serving up sheared furs for spring as well as plenty of sportswear, an area she has expanded in recent seasons.

  • Trilogy, another label known for furs, is playing up capelets, ponchos and cap-sleeved jackets in melon ball, cosmopolitan and other colors inspired by the cocktails.

  • Spiewak and Bernardo are two additional brands offering more lightweight and colorful options for spring. The latter’s sportswear, which was launched last year, will be available in 700 doors for spring.
