Minimalist Folds


One of the trends that crept onto the fall 2013 runways is a little hard to define in a single term, 
but soak in the finer points around it and you’ll know it when you see it. 

It´s a plain fabrics often asymmetrical, throwing the balance off slightly and creating something more interesting than just a straightforward coat.

If you want to go for this type of outerwear, the most viable option is a heavy wool or wool blend coat. Not only is it perfect for combating the winter cold, it just works with the structural elements where a light-weight fabric would fail to maintain its shape.





The other key alternative is leather, be it a leather biker whose front is sculptured into a giant bow, or a leather trench with an angular folded lapel
