Versatility is the design focus for new, Toronto-based vegan outerwear label Biannual Brand. Biannual Brand’s first run of coats, out this season, are sophisticated yet cool, unisex, and created with an element of environmental consciousness. Supremeloft, a recycled cashmere material, fills the puffer coats rather than contentious feather down, and styles are designed for longevity, with slightly retro colour-blocking, practical pockets, and oversized collars (always a cold-weather essential). Some styles use faux-fur for a contemporary effect, and others are even reversible—“You get two different looks without having to sacrifice extra closet space,” says creative director Dani Roche. Meet your wardrobe’s new overachiever overcoat.
