Piece of the Week: The Luxelle Coat Dress
As anyone who has been watching the festivities at the 70th Cannes Film Festival knows, making an entrance – even at the airport – is very important. Stars who arrive in south of France for the two week event are showing up ready to take on all the paparazzi and autograph hunters who greet them at baggage claim looking almost as put together as they do on the red carpeted steps of the Palais des Festival.
In a era when people are getting refused access to airplanes because of their inappropriate attire or show up for their flights in clothing that more closely resembles pajamas than traveling outfits, we propose a chic alternative. This charming dress coat, part of The Aviator collection from the brand Luxelle, was inspired by the golden age of air travel. Designer Rahat Khan used classic American Airline uniforms as the starting point to the line up and the result is a collection of clean lined, prim and proper – yet still playful, pieces.
This particular 3/4 sleeve coat dress, which is fitted and flares in all the right places, features an exclusive print of picturesque vintage airport imagery. The double breasted dress is available in pink or yellow hues and works well on its own. Or it can give a polished finish to a jeans and t-shirt combo for those not willing to give up their comfort clothing on their long haul flights.
