The World’s Cuddliest Coat Is Made from Teddy Bear Fur (Really)

The World’s Cuddliest Coat Is Made from Teddy Bear Fur (Really)

We’re all familiar with the comfort-giving qualities of a teddy bear—soft, snuggly, and undeniably adorable. But has it ever crossed your mind to wear one?

Now you can, thanks to French designer (and self-described “fabric nerd”) Claire Pignot, whose label, Heinui, produces womenswear that’s sweet, sophisticated, and elegantly offbeat. Epitomizing each of these qualities is her Rosine cocoon coat: Designed as a feminine take on a men’s shawl-collar peacoat, it’s made of embroidered indigo cotton from Japan and fully lined in blush pink wool. “I bought the pink fabric a while ago,” the designer, based in Barcelona since 2006, tells us. “It came from a teddy bear factory that also sells high-end faux fur materials. Color-wise, it didn't fit into any of my last collections, and I had bought their last stock—so I had to use it very thoughtfully. This season, it totally matched our pastel prints, so the time was right.”

As if a teddy bear fur lining wasn’t charming enough, this cozy coat also boasts wooden buttons, exceptional warmth, and surprising versatility. “You can wear it inside-out,” says Pignot, “if you take off the labels.”
