Soia & Kyo Women's Coats and Jackets
Founded in 2004 by Canadian designer Ilan Elfassy, Soia & Kyo is a brand of coats and jackets that are designed to be as stylish as they are functional. The line ranges from lightweight trenches to puffy, down-filled coats in fashionable colors. Whether you need a casual jacket or heavy-duty winter parka, Soia & Kyo makes a coat that will suit your needs.How can you tell if a coat will fit?
To make sure a Soia & Kyo coat will fit you, take your measurements and compare them to those of the coat or jacket. You should select a size that either matches or is slightly larger than your own measurements. Here are the measurements you'll need and how to take them:
- Bust: The bust measurement should be taken under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest. The tape should be pulled snug against you here but not so tight that it pinches.
- Waist: Take this measurement at your natural waistline, or where your pants or skirts usually rest. Keep the tape loose; don't pull it too tight. It's better to have a coat or jacket be loose on the waist than have it be too tight.
- Hips: This measurement should be taken at the fullest part of your hips, usually where the thighs begin. The tape should be kept loose because like the waist, it is better to have a coat be a little loose here than too tight.
- Sleeve length: This measurement is taken by placing the end of the tape at the center of the base of your neck where the collar of a shirt would sit. Measure from there to the shoulder down to the elbow and ending at the wrist. Make sure to keep the tape on the outermost part of your arm and shoulder so that you know the sleeves will be long enough.
Here are just a few of the styles of coats and jackets available in the Soia & Kyo fashion line:
- Trench coats: Soia & Kyo produces a line of trench coats in various styles. Single-breasted or double-breasted, coats with large buttons or small, and garments in various lengths and fits can cut the chill on a windy day.
- Leather jackets: Soia & Kyo has a large selection of leather jackets to choose from, including snug, lightweight motorcycle jackets for cool weather. You can also find long, insulated coats with wool lining or fur to keep you warm in the winter.
- Puffed coats or anoraks: If you need a warm, insulated coat, Soia & Kyo makes a large variety of down- or fur-lined coats. You can find them with hoods or without and even with warming inserts in the lining.
