“It is is better to know one book intimately than a hundred superficially.” 
― Donna Tartt, The Secret History

Fans of “The Secret History” know this story sticks with you. When the cold winter months creep up, we remember Donna Tartt’s arresting allegory of Hampden College's clique of elite classics students. If this sends a chill down your spine, never fear… stay warm by literally getting wrapped up in the story! This one of a kind upcycled vintage Hochschild-Kohn wool coat, with its original mink collar and lux silk lining, is appliquéd with all the custom patches from the "TSH" collection as well as specially made chenille patches denoting the novel's fictional alma mater and the year of publication. The coat is finished with a selection of vintage and upcycled pins (the Persephone pin is a twin to one on Tavi Gevinson's Book Jacket- made from a pair of antique cuff links) and a medallion handmade from a rare brooch. This coat is sure to make you stand out as starkly as Henry Winter amongst the common college crowd.
