H. Clinton's Technicolor Coat


Secretary of State Clinton arrived in Tokyo today dressed in, what I found, a metaphoric coat of colors and possibilities. This was one of the first things I noticed this morning and I remember thinking, 'that coat begs for attention.'

She gets my tip of the hat for 'Best Textile Text' I read today.

Consider the lining of the coat.

I agree with Rachel Maddow's commentary, too. Technicolor coat, anyone? Keanu's coat meets a Kimono?
Yes, and yes.
And yes, I approve. Inside and out.

What an apropos lining!
Like anyone can mess with a coat like that. Or someone in a coat like that.
I actually do like many of her wardrobe choices. They seem to say with quiet confidence, I'm much smarter than most and I can do Prada as well as Jackie and Carla. :)
I like her.

That is some lining. A coincidence, methinks not. She needs to travel in style in Japan, after all. Politicos with a flair for fashion.

Wicked coat!
It means, I'm taking care of business in style. The most effective way to do so, no doubt.

Ok, I saw this and I thought you'd dig it. It's not just a coat, of course not.

Talk about contextual clothing! When in the proverbial 'Rome'...
