Mac Attack at The Row

I love a good balmacaan, often better for running around than a trench. The one above, from The Row’s summer collection shown this morning in Paris, is gorgeous. And, the socks are still quite chic.

  • I far prefer a macintosh because of its uncluttered simplicity. Mine is possibly 20 years old and still the best, most polished travel coat I have. It’s a wonderful shade taupe, the collar closes at the neck (as above), and very ‘Italian men’s tailoring’ buttons. If I ever let go of the coat, I will take those buttons off first. 🙂 Just dropped it off at the cleaners yesterday! Thank you for this timeless post.

  • I’ve been hunting for a good balmacaan for years and finally gave up. I hope it’s coming back in popularity?

  • I cannot get enough of this collection. I’ve been watching (and rewatching) footage since it was shown yesterday. So good! Marcheline Isabelle

  • Mine is a balmacaan – I just thought the terms were interchangeable. What is a macintosh?

  • According to my search results, mackintosh is the rubberized fabric that is waterproof. I thought they were interchangeable, too. But, ‘mac’ is also short for balmacaan, so I can leave the title. Phew…

  • The shoes and that long maxi skirt caught my eye immediately. Love!
