San Francisco Fashion: Lan Jaenicke

I’ve always loved coats – During three-fourths of the year you can inevitably find me donning my favorite statement coat before heading out to brave the elements. {Check out Daytime Outerwear, Nighttime Outerwear, and Statement Coats & Winter Outerwear}

At the Stylematic Launch Party Runway Show earlier this year I found myself leaning forward and craning my neck to get a better view of the gorgeous cashmere coats that were making their way down the catwalk.

Clean lines, stylish, classic silhouettes, and rich, bold colors. Basically, everything that I love about outerwear. I later discovered that these beautiful creations were the work of local San Francisco fashion designer Lan Jaenicke. Raised in Beijing and educated in London before moving to New York and then San Francisco, Lan’s work has a very cosmopolitan feel. You can picture these chic pieces marching confidently down side walks around the world.

I recently got the chance to visit the lovely Lan Jaenicke studio here in SF and try on some of the beautiful coats and cropped jackets. With every sleeve that I touched and collar that I brushed I couldn’t help but envision scenario after scenario that each coat would be worn in year-around.

This gorgeous aubergine number immediately caught my attention and I ended up trying it on not once, not twice, but three different times. In an hour…

While the color is what initially caught my eye – How do I not have any purple or aubergine in my closet? How? – It was the softness, the easy, flattering silhouette, and the versatility that eventually forced me to declare it my favorite of the bunch.

Stay tuned for more gorgeous outerwear and separates from Lan Jaenicke, an interview with the beautiful designer, and a peek into her studio. Need something to tide you over? Check out the swoon-worthy Shadows & Light video here shot in Beijing.

  8. never a fan of purple because i believe it doesn’t flatter my fair asian skin tone well. i don’t have a single piece of purple in my wardrobe!
    but the cutting of the coat is nice! kind of structured yet not overly stiff, hence will still accentuate curves. good choice!
