Pelosi emerged from the White House on Tuesday wearing sunglasses and the rust-colored coat.

The look prompted a barrage of memes, commentary from newspapers, and even its own parody Twitter account, whose bio proclaims: “I’m a coat, what else can I say? I have Big Coat Energy.”


After the viral moment, the Italian designer announced Wednesday that it would bring the “Glamis” coat back in its 2019 collection, adding several other color choices, according to Glamour.

The brand confirmed to the magazine that the decision to bring back the coat was inspired by the Democratic leader. 

“You develop an emotional relationship with a coat like nothing else in your wardrobe,” said Ian Griffiths, Max Mara’s creative designer. “I can imagine why Ms. Pelosi chose to wear it for this important moment, and I’m honored.”

Among the coat's fans was "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins, who called it “diplomacy in motion.”

"She knew exactly what she was doing wearing THIS coat on THIS day coming out of THAT room, placing THOSE shades on JUST so," Jenkins tweeted. "This is diplomacy in motion, soft power wielded like a machete through the diligent, decisive act of dressing. They’ve never been JUST clothes."
