1. Camel Cashwool Jacket by Thu Thu
Ever since I spotted this oversized cashmere & wool motorcycle jacket, I’ve been completely in love. Trimmed with traditional embroidered Sapa fabric from the H’mong tribes in the Northern Vietnam, it features a contrast leopard print lapel. Despite those eye-catching details, the camel color and versatile cut make this jacket a sure wardrobe staple.
