Origins…

…of the style: People have been wearing wrap coats in one form another for centuries. When or who first put the wrap coat on the runway, I couldn’t find out, but they have been there for decades and no doubt will be for decades more.

…of the name: The coat wraps around the body rather than fastening, so it is a wrap coat.
