Make a sweeping statement in this dramatic long coat with an innovative notched collar in cartridge rib. The fronts are cut away from hip to hem to swing freely open, and the drop shoulders create just a touch of detail at the narrow sleeves. In woolen-spun Shelter, Corvid moves beautifully without weighing you down.
