Coats and knits are two of my favourite fashion things and Perry Ellis did both brilliantly in the 1980s, first by Ellis himself (the designer died in 1986), and starting in 1998 by then-wunderkind Marc Jacobs. The looks created by both designers still seem fresh, even today, having stood the test of time.
