What is the secret behind the coat’s incredible appeal? Founder Morgane Sézalory explains that a timeless style and environmentally conscious approach is the key to the Scott’s sell-out success.

“A perfect trench is a mid-season essential that you’ll revisit season after season”, says Sézalory. “Our take on the classic adopts a straight, yet fitted cut that feels light & feminine & will flatter every body shape. We’ve added natural-toned buttons & light stitching to give the coat a minimalist, fresh feel. Scott is also the perfect length, not too long, not too short; and in 100% organic cotton, it’s also a sustainable choice!”

Though it was the coat’s tailoring-inspired details and wear-everywhere appeal that got us adding our names to the thousand-strong waiting list, it was Sézane’s ethical credentials that left us seriously impressed. Taking a sustainable approach to crafting wardrobe staples, the Scott is crafted from 100% organic cotton and is made in the European Union to minimize the coat’s carbon footprint. A win for your personal style, and the planet.
