Best of Boston

1998 Best Women's Clothing, Coats


Luxurious double-faced cashmere, the basis of an Akris coat, keeps out the cold and looks great in the process. (A novel concept in fashion: practicality.) The coat collection here is all about fabric and tailoring, exquisite wraps for the consumer who lives and buys by the maxim quality, not quantity. As one faithful customer pointed out: “They’re forever.” Better be, at these prices.
