Received the SS Allure "dune" coat as a gift from my wife -- WOW. Photos do not do this coat justice, and I would have continued to sleep on this but for her better judgment. I know (hope) NMWA is still planning the Bay Area trunk show this Fall, but even if they are simply small productions with a few select items, a small road show with sample wares would basically lead to a NMWA subscription where I tithe over my monthly discretionary budget.
Do. Not. Sleep.
