60s Swing Mac from Oasis


Swing coats for Summer never seem to go out of style, and it never takes over the top detailing or patterns to make a real retro statement. One of the best we've seen this season comes in the form of this 60s Swing Mac from Oasis.

Available in two vintage inspired shades, the tomato red in particular has an effortless feel of British mid-sixties design. With an A-line shape, slim sleeves and a high collar, the simple addition of flap pockets adds both practicality and a hint of classic militaristic influence too.

It's now available in both colours for £75 from Oasis.
