Minimalist and Sophisticated

 I roll my eyes when the fashion magazines use the word “lust” for fashion items–and they use it often–but I just might be in lust with Lan Jaenicke coats. 

From the moment I first saw this San Francisco designer’s work I loved it.  The silhouettes are clean and bold, and there is an attention to detail that is usually reserved for couture,  such as blind seams and handmade snap buttons.     But what  captures me most is the deliciously luxurious cashmere that they are made of, light enough to suit our mild Palo Alto and the Bay Area weather.  My particular favorite is this tomato colored number with a dramatic collar.  It is carried at both Leaf & Petal and Cassis.
