Valentina’s coat before & after

This coat belonged to my grandmother and she has given it to me the last spring when I went to visit her in Sardinia. I can still feel that smell of camphor and love that was spreading across the room while we were going through her wardrobe filled with pieces that she had kept over 40 years. Even though I am not a vintage style person having this coat on gave me the same sensation like when she is hugging me. I decided to keep it and redesign it so that it suites better my style and personality. This winter I enjoyed wearing it cause it doesn’t only bring physical warmth, but warm memories and my grandmother’s presence.
