Fall 2009 Investment: Prada Wool Cape/Coat from F/W 2008 Runway

Why is it that Prada's F/W 2008 collection looks fresher to me now than it did last year? It's as if I suddenly "got it." I did love certain pieces from this collection--and even purchased (1) a beige & grey silk tunic that fades into mohair and (2) a silvery mint green sleeveless sheath dress--but I didn't think much of the double-breasted cape/coat seen pictured above. My initial thought was that it was impractical and too masculine.
What a difference a year makes. I ended up scouring eBay for this piece and finally came across it last week. Given that it was a fraction of the retail price, I went in for the kill. (For the past two years, my staple fall/winter coat was an unstructured grey wool wrap-coat by Marni. I seriously wore it everyday.) I can totally imagine myself wearing this number through all of the cold days, layering underneath and, of course, donning long leather gloves. It works as an everyday piece or for evening--very versatile. Best part is that it looks absolutely fierce with the YSL Tribute Too pumps. Yes, I had to go there with "fierce"!
