Since the opening of The Edit back in October, we'd like to update you with a new brand they're carrying - they're based in the US and make perfect coats for an unpredictable springtime in Chicago. The line is Helena-Quinn out of LA that instantly recalls the glamour and sophistication inspired by the traditional and iconic Swing Coat.
Inspired by the all-encompassing nature of coats, designer Andrea Racey set out to create a collection for today's modern woman that delivers classic construction with a high level of functionality, not often found in a standard issue coat. The collection has both light and mid weight styles that are seasonally ambiguous, and perfect for Spring.
With an affordable price tag of $99-$300, the designer was clear that she wanted a lifestyle collection that could instantly make a woman feel chic, pulled together, and confident, without breaking the bank.
