FROM LEFT: “One of my favorite pieces in the collection is this Casentino wool coat in cobalt blue. Casentino is a very old cloth fiber from the Tuscany area. It was the fabric that people used in lieu of fur because it’s resistant to dampness and incredibly warm. It’s a great piece to get around with.” Casentino long wool maxi coat, $795 at etienneaigner.com
“Our ankle boot is the runaway elite of the season—I bought them in suede [and] leather. It’s the perfect height: a mid-heel, so it’s not too low, not too high. It’s going to be your everyday boot, hands-down.” Tati fringe 55mm mid-heel ankle boot, $395
