Winter is coming, and I can’t wait. Not just because I am a Stark of Winterfell at heart, but because I adore winter clothes. Coats, in particular. A fabulous coat is like a fabulous dress, an outfit in and of itself.

No one likes to be cold (especially me), so a good winter coat needs to marry form with function. It needs to be made from high-quality materials that will last for countless wearings. And, if it is going to be worn by an Eco-Chick, it needs to be mindfully made.

The Fitzroy coat from Gehrich (pictured at top) is part of the Melbourne collection. The Gehrich designs are all from the mind of co-founder and creative director, Samantha Gehrich. The Fitzroy is a virgin wool and angora blend. I am not usually a fan of a Peter Pan collar, but this one is perfectly adult, not at all twee. The oatmeal color and the wide sleeves are achingly classy.

Another Gehrich favorite: The Brunswick. The Gehrich online store has just opened to US buyers, and I anticipate a rush of stateside Eco-Chicks to start snapping these up. Collection sizes and production are limited, in order to stay sustainable. The line is manufactured entirely in Australia, to support local industries. The Brunswick is a Merino Wool Cashmere blend. I adore the earthy color, the silhouette, and the oversize buttons at the cuffs.
