Nmenouno Couture Lime Coat

All Product & Brand Reviews
Gosh, I wanted to show you this coat so much! I was contemplating taking an Instagram shot of it, but my crappy phone would have ruined the magical moment…
You probably already know I’m not the bragging type of person. In fact, I’m quite the opposite. And when you think about it, considering the vastness of space, the billions of galaxies with billions of stars in them, you start to realize what an insignificant, pathetic speck you are. This is not the case with this coat…I just had the urge to shove it in your faces and shout “Look at me! Look at how awesome I am, this is why mom didn’t have an abortion! So I can dress up and be pretty”. It’s safe to say this coat makes me an obnoxious asshole, but I don’t care. 

I have never owned anything that expressed my inner self so much. Something that screams “The world is a cruel and dark place, but I couldn’t give a flying fuck about it, I’m so happy”. This is what this coat is telling you (yes it can talk).

It’s all thanks to the talented team of “Nmenouno”. Girlies who read the blog regularly, would already be familiar with the brand. For the people who actually have social lives and don’t spend 90% of their time on the net, (silly you) I shall give you the tour. Nmenouno are the most interesting, socially responsible and creative brand I’ve come across in my 2 years of blogging. They are based in Italy and produce eco-friendly merchandise of exceptional quality and versatility, all hand sewn in Italy. The reason I’m so excited about this brand, is because even a skeptic like me, can’t think of anything negative to say about them. 

So, what really makes “Nmenouno” so special? Well, this is a tough cookie to crack, because it’s not one thing, but a combination of many things.  A combination of attitude, talent, passion and love for what they do. I’m just going to quote a sentence from their About Me page, which I personally think, summarizes them best, and leave it at that: “For us, life and fashion aren’t about individuals – they are about relationships – with people, with what you make, with the world around us, at the smallest scale and the biggest”… Don’t you love them already! *_* 

What makes their coat even more interesting, is the whole ordeal of making the wool. It’s made from a felted wool, which is created by one of the oldest known fabric making process. The wool is woven, washed in boiling water and then dried. The end result, as you can see, is a textile that is extremely warm, natural, breathable, sustainable and gentle to the skin. But perhaps the greatest quality, comes from the oversized, asymmetric pockets. Anyone sick from wearing outerwear without pockets? I know I am! Finally, I can stash my huge pepper spray where it belongs!
So what do you guys think? Yay, Nay, or “Keit, it’s too early in the morning, leave me drink mah coffee”

  1. what what whaaat! I knew from the thumbnail that this would be an uber exciting outfit. *___* This coat is seriously all things magical. The texture of it is so neat, too!! I think this coat is sort of like your child, Keit. Take good care of it. 😀

  2. Keit, love your coat, your mum, you and your stupid mall boots! All of it! I can think of something negative about these Nmenouno people! They are too damn far away to ship anything to west coast Canada without it costing two arms and a leg and being BAAAAAD for the environment. Damn them!

  3. You look gorgeous Keit, and you crack me up.
    The coat looks SO amazingly comfy, and that big pocket is the best. Everything needs to have pockets like that.

  4. This coat is the kind of coat that only you could wear and make look fabulous – which is maybe why it expresses your inner self so well 🙂
    xox,
    Cee

  5. huh, you must really love that coat! 😛 and well, I can see why. it's definitely "your" coat and you two belong together. oh and the scarf and those booties belong with you and the coat too! it's such a vibrant and happy look that brightens up even the gloomiest days (like every day we have here in Estonia currently… no sun at all 🙁 oh and I must add I love the fact you're wearing a crop top under the whole cosy thing. aaand I was really happy when I found myself from your blogroll. totally made my day! I must say that even if my own blog doesn't currently have an actual blogroll you have always been in my imaginary favourites' blogroll (and I'm not saying this because I saw myself in yours, haha). so yeah, I think I've said it all now! 😀

  6. I've been following your blog for I think about a year and you are always dressed like a ray of sunshine, with a dash of magenta and leather – the best combination ever. And I I love that you buy mostly secondhand, about 80% of my closet is secondhand as well 😛
    I'm 15 years old and my friend and I recently started a book blog, would you mind checking it out?
