I'm always on the lookout for a great jacket or coat. They really are the icing on the cake. They have the potential to save an outfit, dress up an outfit, or - surprise surprise - they can be useful when trying to get warm. A great jacket is a sartorial investment. It should last you a lifetime if you buy it well.
If you find a vintage jacket/coat you love but it's not quite right, tweak it with some new buttons. Or take it to a tailor and get it altered.
And where better to direct Fantasy Island Friday to than to the shores of New Zealand, home of the fashion-forward label Zambesi. I love NZ fashion. Directional, always a little quirky, and just plain uber cool.
