Casual with a twist of the poetic, this new piece from Japanese makers *A VONTADE is the perfect accompaniment to a life of a visionary. Your creative ambition might be to write, paint, sculpt or photograph the next vital expression of human existence, or it might begin and end with an Instagram filter. Whatever your chosen medium, subject, or indeed, level of natural talent, this robe coat will make you look like you know what you’re doing. Which is, looking at certain prominent influencers, evidently half the battle.
You may flinch at the idea of a jacket that looks like a dressing gown. This is where you need to turn your artisanal dial up a notch. It’s traditional and Japanesey, it’s soulful and relaxed. It says you’re elegantly out of step with convention. It says that when you choose Clarendon over Juno it means something.
From personal experience I can say this style of jacket is more practical than you might first assume. Big pockets, easy to throw over a lighter jacket or gilet and looks great undone, just waving around. And this piece is made from a cotton/linen blend, so it’ll work well as we inch towards warmer spring evenings. Perfect for outdoor cafe life. You know, when you’re trying to frame another fucking picture of your latte with a heart in the foam.
