Max Mara’s Teddy Bear Coat for over $4,000 is having a comeback – but we don’t have to pay that. Maybe 10 years ago there were fewer options for finding prices we could afford for designs we love but not any more.
Reaching cult status when it debuted in 2013, this faux-fur teddy-bear coat is coveted for its cozy feel and ability to turn any outfit into a statement-maker.
“Designed in 2013, the Teddy Bear Coat was inspired by an archival garment from the ’80s and immediately became an it-coat. Stars and influencers loved its perfect alchemic blend of glamour and playfulness. Its special alpaca and cashmere texture on a silk base is created using sophisticated technology, developed by the creative team with an Italian supplier, which produces a unique faux fur. The coat’s abundant volume is a celebration of the opulent extravagance of this fabric.”
I wore a teddy bear coat in the 80’s when it all began – it was faux fur then – and so cool with my jeans, hiking boots and toddlers at the playground — but I can’t seem to find that picture.
Today the starts are wearing our fashion from way back when: Taylor Swift is wearing it – Heidi Klum – Blake Lively …to name a few.
But now we can wear it again too. Look at these great Teddy Bear Coats at the right price point.
The centerpiece of your winter wardrobe, this luxe coat is made from the softest faux fur you’ve ever felt. The trench-style silhouette has a notched collar, zippered pockets and a sleek, satiny lining. It strikes a long, wonderfully dramatic silhouette, and is designed for an oversized look—we recommend sizing down if you prefer a closer fit. Pair it with a mini dress and heels for a night out or a sweat set and sneakers for a street look.
Cut with a tailored silhouette in a midi length, this warm coat is crafted in a faux fur fabric we selected for its incredible softness and warmth.
Cozy faux shearling lends lightweight cloud-like comfort to a longline coat.
