This lovely Cape Coat by Uterque, Zara’s grown-up sister company, caught my eye in today’s edition of The Times.
Clicking through to the Uterque website, there truly is:
a carefully selected Ready To Wear collection in which quality materials and attention to detail are of the utmost importance
Nice – site and collection both. Chic classic styling in easy shapes. Well made. Good quality fabrics.
Sadly, sizes seem to go only to a UK16. Honestly, I sometimes feel that I’d give up body parts to be able to source something similar in plus sizes.
The closest to this style and quality for plus sizes that I’ve seen is Eileen Fisher but at starting prices close to £150-200 an item that is, for every day wear, ludicrous. Additionally, for the few like me, in a wheelchair, everything gets shredded, pulled and yanked – heartbreaking if you’ve paid £000’s for it!
Nevertheless, if my problems – plus sizes and wheels – are not your problems, Uterque is well worth a look.
