It's been almost a good six months since we first spotted the white corps of starkly white, ripstop-nylon jumpsuits in the window of the Norma Kamali's 11 East 56th Street space. And before we could consider tagging one as a future wedding dress (we're weird like that), they were replaced by her signature sleeping bag coat in summer appropriate colors of heather grey and dusty pink.
But now winter is almost upon us, and those white jumpsuits have been reproduced in more New York street-friendly black. Although we want to say that it strikes us¡with all that cinching and bunching?as a bit goth, we can't because it doesn't. And really, who can deny the awesomeness of a sleeping bag coat?
