SENTALER founder Bojana Sentaler is a bona fide outerwear expert—her luxurious coats are worn by international tastemakers like Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton and Gigi Hadid. To help you with your next outerwear purchase, we asked the fashion designer to share the must-know trends and silhouettes for the seasons ahead.
Can you tell us about the latest SENTALER collection? Which styles are you most excited about this season?
SENTALER’s new Fall Winter 2022/23 collection is inspired by simpler, more carefree times as the SENTALER woman looks ahead to a season of outdoor adventure and winter getaways. I have created new contemporary shapes, colours, and prints full of menswear influence, heritage aspects, and a new animal print with a retro palette, for an elevated 70’s look and feel. Some of the styles I am most excited about this season are the new Collarless Bomber Jacket and the Houndstooth Alpaca Notched Collar Coat, which has SENTALER’s first ever houndstooth print pattern.
What are your top three outerwear trends for the season?
Top outerwear trends this Fall/Winter include bomber jackets, and I was very excited while designing SENTALER’s collarless take on the classic bomber, which makes it more elevated and elegant. Retro-inspired pieces are also “in.” I designed the new Double Breasted Tailored Coat in burnt orange, which was my take on the ’70s look and feel. Also, plush-feel cozy fabrics have been a leading outerwear trend for the past few years, and this season I have introduced multiple silhouettes in SENTALER’s plush-feel textured boucle alpaca for that warm and cozy feel.
What are the coat silhouettes that feel new and fresh to you?
In my new Fall/Winter collection I have created SENTALER’s first aviator jacket, which has the signature double collar and oversized silhouette for a very fresh look and feel. Also, I believe that hybrid blazers are the new trend this season, as they can be worn as a layering piece or even as a conversation piece. This season, I introduced SENTALER’s first-ever blazer in a superfine alpaca fabric, which is very fresh for fall.
Are there any colours that are trending for outerwear?
Brights are trending for outerwear this fall and I have some very fun colours in my latest collection including orchid flower, atlantic blue and orange oxide.
