“I’ll be living in Maison Mayle’s tweed and leather coat once the cold front is upon us. The design is both stylish and cozy, and can transcend both city and country lifestyles.”

Jennifer Sunwoo, EVP, GMM Women’s

“Grey is a chic neutral choice that I’ll be embracing in my wardrobe this season. This R/R Studio coat drapes seamlessly over any outfit, providing the perfect polished touch.”


Lillian Yim, VP of Merchandising, Digital

“NYC winters can be brutal, so it’s hard to find a coat that is aesthetically cool yet functional. While I love fur coats, they often can’t withstand the snow and sleet. This Mr And Mrs Italy parka is an exception because it has all the elements I’m looking for. With a fur lining and canvas exterior, I’ll be warm and ready for any weather report.”

“I’ve been searching for a new black coat and was immediately drawn to this military inspired take. It’s classic yet still on trend and I can always count on our Barneys New York private label for quality fabrics.”

“This shearling coat is both modern and luxurious. The bomber-like shape carries well into winter because its extended length and lining will keep me very, very warm.”

“Generally speaking, I’m drawn to duster coats, and I immediately fell in love with this option from Nili Lotan when I saw it in market. The camel color and relaxed silhouette makes it an everyday staple for fall!”

Hannah Bibb, Assistant Fashion Director

The Reracs is my new favorite outerwear collection this season as each coat is tailored to perfection. The contrasting white buttons and leather trimmed pockets turn a classic peacoat into a modern must-have. Also, you’ll find an anchor pin on each coat’s lapel—a great signature detail.”

THE RERACS Melton Peacoat

Morgan Richardson, Senior Buyer, Women’s Designer RTW

“Burberry trench coats are iconic! As demonstrated with our XO collaboration, an oversized silhouette is updated with red piping to offer a nice point of distinction, while still holding true to Burberry’s military heritage. This coat is a great transitional option to wear throughout the fall.”


Shelby Alt, Associate Buyer, Women’s Designer RTW

“My personal style is pretty casual, but I love a good statement jacket to instantly upgrade an outfit. Throw this on over a T-shirt and jeans and you’ll be quickly out the door!”

Mariko Ichikawa, Buyer, Women’s Designer RTW

“Fur is the only thing that really keeps me warm during the harsh winters, and this rich burgundy hue is an update my wardrobe needs!”

SIES MARJAN Burgundy Coat

Meredith Hinshaw, Associate Buyer, Lingerie, Swimwear, Sleep, & Hosiery

“I’m guilty of resorting to black staples once it starts to get cold so I love this fresh, blush Chloé jacket to update my fall look. The wooden toggles are a unique detail, plus, it’s Exclusively Ours!”
