Trina Turk Coat

It's getting cold in New York and we've found something fits the bill perfectly.  "Rich peacock print in a striking style, seamed for a stunning fit. Inset waist enhances the hourglass shape, and faux-fur trim adds an ultraluxe finish."  That's the Trina Turk "Prima Donna" Coat.

LuxNews: China to Dominate Luxe Market

According to WWD, Chinese consumers are likely to account for almost a quarter of global luxury goods purchases by as early as 2014, making these customers the number-one purchasers of luxury goods in the world.  Note that this is about nationality, not country of purchase, as luxury shoppers from emerging markets spend more on high-end goods while traveling than when at home.
