Designer Walid Al Damirji likens By Walid’s lovingly repurposed garments – such as this black Tanita coat – to intricate jigsaw puzzles, as they’re crafted from antique textiles which require diligent patience in fitting the right pieces together. Exclusive to MATCHESFASHION, it’s made in London from a 19th-century silk shawl depicting vibrant orange embroidered blooms, backed in cotton canvas for structure, then overworked with topstitched dashes. Wear it over an all-black evening edit.
