It's been a long, cold winter and we're already dreaming about the next one to come. Have we up and lost our minds? No, rather, designers in Milan have up and shown us a bevy of downright chic coats for fall 2009. Whether structural, dark and tweedy (Prada, Gucci) or fluid, languid and muted (Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta), these toppers may just make us look forward to that first cold snap.
