Those in-between days
Sunday 22 February 1998
THIS WEEK'S Yes Please, for lots of reasons, is this oyster grey three- button frock coat by Paul Frith from BHS. First off, it will be perfect for in-between months if you don't want to be coat-less just yet (see No Thank You), so you can buy it and wear it immediately. It will make your wardrobe more chic, and lots of people will comment on it if you wear it over black. Brighter silvery greys appeared on many a catwalk for spring/summer - Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Ann Demeulemeester, Clements Ribiero and Ghost to name but a few. It's the right colour for "occasions" if you ask me. The linen/viscose coat is part of BHS's "Premier Collection" and was designed by Paul Frith exclusively for them. BHS sponsored Frith's first solo collection two years ago at London Fashion Week and he now acts as a design consultant for them. He's not the only designer with BHS connections either - Owen Gaster has designed a couple of pieces for the store too. All definitely worth a look.
Paul Frith coat (sizes 10-18) pounds 99, BHS. Available now in 20 branches nationwide. Enquiries: 0171 262 3288
