Alix Verley-Pietrafesa first started sewing her own jackets, made from textiles, buttons and appliqués that she had collected from her worldly travels, while attending university in Scotland. Today, she continues to create bespoke, bohemian inspired outerwear from her home base in New York and has garnered a cult following. Her coats are works of art – each one unique and spontaneously designed as they’re constructed. Sadly, her latest collection, which includes beautiful medley of ribbon detailing, ruffles and embroidery, is already sold out. However, it doesn’t mean I’m not keeping close tabs on what Alix produces next . . .
