It's 7 p.m. and dumping snow, which bodes well for tomorrow but not your date tonight. The options look bleak: Throw an old puffy coat over your black cocktail dress or risk hypothermia with a soggy sweater. Enter Erin Isakov, a Brown Universityeducated fashiondesigner who started Erin Snowwith its unique take on winter apparelthree years ago. Wrap that January party dress in this fall's Morgen Coat, a calf-length, 600-fill-down jacket with two-way zipper and a water-resistant, silky shell. It feels as soft and cozy as a sleeping bag but won't look out of place in Crested Butte or on 5th Avenue.
