Max Mara is bringing back a 2013 burnt orange-coloured coat after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went viral for wearing it earlier this week following a heated Oval Office discussion with President Trump.
On Tuesday, Ms Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence at the White House for an impromptu televised meeting to discuss financing border security and the President’s proposed wall on the southern US border.
Mr Trump vowed to shut down the government unless Congress agreed to pay for the wall which, in the eyes of the Democrats, was a major victory.

However, it was Ms Pelosi’s style, rather than her politics, that caught the attention of fashion aficionados on social media.
Following the meeting, images showing the 78-year-old and Schumer smiling as they left the West Wing were quickly shared online, with the congresswoman cooly accessorising her orange-hued funnel neck coat with a pair of sunglasses as she walked to greet the press waiting outside .
The look resulted in a barrage of memes, its own parody Twitter account (whose bio reads: ‘I’m a coat, what else can I say? I have Big Coat Energy’), praise from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, and even prompted the brand behind the coat to announce it has decided to bring back the design in 2019.
The Italian fashion house shared a press release announcing it would reinstate the coat – nicknamed ‘the Glamis’ – into its outwear collection next year.
It will be available “in a variety of colourways,” a spokesperson for the brand confirmed to Glamour.
Ian Griffiths, the creative director of Max Mara, also released a statement on the Pelosi style choice, adding: “You develop an emotional relationship with a coat like nothing else in your wardrobe. I can imagine why Ms Pelosi chose to wear it for this important moment, and I’m honoured.”
The sartorial news comes days after the congresswoman suggested the president’s ego made for an intense West Wing discussion.
Ms Pelosi told members of her party that Mr Trump “must have said the word ‘wall’ 30 times”, according to Politico.
She added: “I was trying to be the mom. But it goes to show you – you get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you.
“It’s like a manhood thing with him – as if manhood can be associated with him. This wall thing.”
This afternoon Ms Pelosi, who was the first woman in American history to be speaker of the House from 2007-2011, secured the vote necessary to return to the role in January after agreeing to limit her tenure to no more than four additional years.
“Over the summer, I made it clear that I see myself as a bridge to the next generation of leaders,” Ms Pelosi said in a statement, “a recognition of my continuing responsibility to mentor and advance new Members into positions of power and responsibility in the House Democratic Caucus.”
