I am completely obsessed with Brocade this Fall.
It has such a richness to it...and when I see it on the runway... it immediately tells me a story. It feels vintage and royal...yet when styled correctly can take on a more rugged and edgy appearance. I have fallen in love with this brocade jacket from Balmain Fall 2010.
bebe.com has a coat similar to this one at a much more reasonable price.
