Mr & Mrs Italy, formerly known as Mr & Mrs Furs, made its name with luxury parkas whose fans include Rihanna and Cara Delevingne. For its spring collection, the label turned its attention to the trenchcoat.
Based on a vintage design, the ample coats came in canvas, loden or a yellow waterproof fabric, with detachable collars made of colorful mink or coyote fur.
Creative director Geraldina Bassani Antivari sprinkled patches, pom-poms and colored crystals on items that included jeans, sweatshirts and tops. While the coats had a more narrow appeal than previous parka designs, the rest of the collection should find favor among fans of an elevated Army-surplus aesthetic.
Under new ownership and management since late 2013, Mr & Mrs Italy is rapidly expanding, having recently opened its first freestanding store in Milan and launched a men’s collection.
