–  |  styles  |  –

Our styles are conceived around four different shapes – the A-Line, the Column, the Hourglass and the Cocoon. Combined, these shapes should fit and flatter the full range of female frames.

 

The A-Line, Hourglass and Column shapes are offered with different sleeve headers and sleeves. Those with header treatments – The Bell, The Burlinson, The Nicholson and The Fedden – have small pleats as standard, but you can plump instead for gentle gathers or box pleats. 

Our A-Line coats come in two different fits. The Bell and Carrington for the smaller busted, the Burlinson and Boyce for those with more generous busts. The Burlinson and Boyce can be let out at the bust to accommodate a better fit for each wearer.

Smaller Bust

about the bell coat

The Bell coat is fantastically flattering and easy to wear. It is designed to fall to the calf, has roomy bracelet length sleeves, subtle pleats at the shoulders and a generous swing. Two small seams accentuate a flattering waisted shape at the back, while jetted pockets sit at a subtly slanted angle at the front.

 

The design can be worn open or closed. When closed, the two front panels of the coat should be able to meet without either straining at the rear or overlapping at the front; they can be held together to keep the coat closed with any of our closures.

body type

The Bell works well on all frames with more modest busts.

For those with a fuller bust we recommend the Burlinson Coat.

customising the bell 

You can opt to have the Bell taken in or let out at the shoulders, cut to a longer or shorter length, and to lengthen or shorten its sleeves. As alternatives to the pleated headers, you can opt for subtle gathers or box pleats.
You can add any of our closures to the Bell Coat.

Smaller Bust
