Worn every day and seen by everyone, there’s no need for dull and boring outerwear – winter is your opportunity to wear a coat you absolutely love!

Here at kay me, we’ve reworked our best-selling elegant trench coats for 2019 and produced two beautiful colors for the season.

Our new coats feature all the stylish detail that makes them so original and such a hit here in Tokyo and beyond.

Taking elements from a classic trench coat and combining with the beauty of a wool-blend fabric, our coats are the perfect combination of style and practicality.
