Winter Coat Obsessed

I don't get to do a lot of coat-wearing in Florida, but, as a former New Englander, beautiful coats are always on my mind. I've been loving the offerings at Danier, a Canadian based company, and wanted to share my favorites. Danier has been on my radar for a few years now, as they have some very on-trend leather pieces at very affordable prices (compared to other leather jackets). They also have one of the largest size ranges I've seen, all the way from XXXS (US 0-2) to XXXL (US 22)!  I haven't purchased anything yet but maybe this is the season! I honestly want ALL of them but I am especially drooling over #3!
1. Bianca - Such a perfect, simple, streamlined and slim leather jacket. If I didn't already have a plain black one I'd buy this one.
2. Simone - The leather adds some edge to a typical blazer. I could see this working at a more creative office - or even my office on a non-court day. 
3. Colette - This would be so fun to own. I love the quilted leather sleeves mixed with the warm boucle fabric of the body. Since my other winter coat is a pretty girly J.Crew one, this would fit in well for the days I want to dress more edgy. 
4. Harlow - The bordeaux color, the asymmetrical neckline, the long length.. In love. 
5. Cara - This reminds me of Cruella Deville for some reason, but obviously a chic Cruella. The stand up high neck collar is amazing. 

6. Grace - This coat fits right in with the menswear trend, with the boyish body and mixture of herringbone and leather. 
7. Makayla - This looks like the warmest option of the bunch with the warm fuzzy collar and wool body. 
Have you ever purchased from Danier? What has your experience been with the brand? They ship to the U.S. so it's a viable option! 


  1. I've been looking for a jacket just like #1. Do post what you hear about ordering from them. They all look interesting, leather is lamb, so it should be nice and soft. Exchange rate isn't great, but it is believable, so prices are slightly lower than they appear. Any idea if there is an import duty on leathers coming in from Canada?

  2. I have no idea if there are import duties because I've never ordered from Canada before. However, I did a google search and found this website:

    I believe if you click that link it will give you an estimate of what to expect to pay in import fees - I estimated the shipping as 25$ but on a 299.00 item (as this jacket is) its a fee of around $17. It still adds up to way less than, say, an All Saints or Muubaa leather jacket (which are my favorite brands to look at).

  3. I LOVE #3. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I'm eager to hear your ordering experience - might be worth it for one of these gorgeous pieces!
