The Selva Luxe Coat is my favourite jacket ever, it is a must-have statement for colder days. A dream combination of function and effortless style, this is a game-changer.

Why I Love It:

This is the kind of cover up that you can instantly throw on and look like you aren’t trying too hard. The cocoon shape, collarless neck and bracelet sleeves fall perfectly, creating a slouchy fit designed for layering.

Fashion-forward and technical, the coat’s faux-leather details and rose gold accents add a luxe edge, which I love. When we designed the new Sports Luxe collection, the design team and I wanted to fuse activewear fabrics with fashion shapes, so the weighty neoprene fabric is great for the current freezing weather!

How I Wear It:

Whether worn over sportswear for studio to street style or layered over knitwear, this versatile coat is timeless. I’ve been travelling a lot recently, so this has become my airport hero, worn over the Rhythm Merino Pants and a fine knit cashmere tee, it’s a great extra layer when transitioning between climates.  

The muted grey colour palette works over everything, so post-exercise I like to throw it on over a pair of printed leggings - my current favourites are the graphic Amrita Yoga Leggings. For a Sports Luxe look, I’ll wear it over the wide-legged Sono Luxe Trousers with a chunky knit and white Acne trainers.
