There are a few things you’ll notice right away about Buro 24/7 founder Miroslava Duma. For one thing, her signature brown tresses are always sleek and flawless. Then there’s the fact that she’s usually wearing a statement coat. The darling, daisy accented Natasha Zinko creation seen above, tipped at the lapels with sunshine yellow fur, is a prime example.
Miroslava’s assortment of coats is as vast as it is varied. It includes items like versatile, earth toned great coats that can go with literally anything. On the other end of the spectrum are vivid items emblazoned with wild patterns, such as the Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2015 knee length creation she paired with d’Orsay pumps one Paris Fashion Week.
For all the mothers-to-be out there praying for a winter coat guru, look no further. While with-child, Miroslava was the master of flattering her baby bump with strategic lines and sharp cuts.
Slipping into character with a cape coat is easy with Miroslava as your guide. Just compare the leather plus destroyed denim look above to her gingham styled with jet black accents, below. In both cases she’s blending refined notes with relaxed fun. But would you recognize her as the same person if you were just casually walking past?
Inventive, full of personality, and ever-changing, Miroslava’s coats are endlessly inspiring. One day you’ll spot her striding along, carrying a Louis Vuitton clutch that matches the red and black color scheme of her outerwear, topped off with Saint Laurent shades. Another time, she’ll be poised and polished in seafoam green with exaggerated lapels and an ornamental defined waist.
Her tresses will be flawlessly set in an updo one time, then covered by a decorative scarf the next. Always different, always interesting, all the while managing an online style empire with effortless assurance — how does she do it? With a flair for fashion, a deep understanding of her place in this global industry, and an affinity for a fine coat — that’s one answer! — jas
