I stumbled upon Mackage because of their Hope coat, a limited-edition coat created to raise breast cancer awareness. One of the designers of Mackage, Elisa Dahan, wanted to honor her mother and create something that would raise funds to support breast cancer research. The Hope coat features a white lining with pink bows on it and pink piping on the outside. Aside from being a fabulous coat, what struck me was how refreshing it is that they didn’t just create a pink coat. They added pink in small details without sacrificing their aesthetic. $100 from the sale of each coat is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
If you like the Hope coat, you must check out the rest of the pictures from Mackage’s Fall/Winter ’08 Collection. The photos are stunning and perfectly highlight the dramatic wool and leather coats with upturned collars and large fur hats. It’s very Julie Christie in Dr. Zhivago and I thought I’d never say this, but I want it to be cold so I could wear those coats! More pictures after the jump.
