StyleList caught up with Kardashian momma Kris Jenner at New York City's London Hotel, where the reality TV star jump-started a partnernship with Curél Skincare and Searle to raise funds for One Warm Coat -- a charity that provides coats to those in need.

One of the city's most blustery days turned out to be the ideal backdrop for Kardashian's great reveal: a snuggly down puff coat with studded collar detail she designed with Searle that will sell on the website for $198, and in part help Curel to make a $25,000 donation to the charity.

"We designed a really cool coat in my new favorite color, which is graphite. It's all down, it's weather-resistant, and it's something everyone can wear -- getting up and going to the gym, to going out to dinner at night over a beautiful black dress," said Jenner.

"That dark gray shade looks real chic to wear this time of year, and it looks great on everybody," she added.

Named the Barrier Coat as a nod to Curel's newly reformulated line of replenishing lotions that contain protective ceramides, the pairing is meant to symbolize two of winter's greatest essentials: a toasty winter coat and a soothing, rich hand cream.

"Searle really worked with us to come down on the price so more people could buy it. It's truly a $400 coat, with the full down and stitching you would expect of a coat like that," said Jenner.

And with the bite of frost in the air, we asked the mom to famous sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney what skincare secret she most swears by.

"I have a great tip that I teach all my girls. When I was going to flight attendant school, somebody taught me that when you wash your face, use a hot white terrycloth on your face every night, and it will also act as an exfoliator," said Jenner.

"So I've always washed my face like that, and it has done me a lot of good. I passed that on to my older girls when they were just Kendall and Kylie's age," she said, referring to her 15 and 13-year-old daughters with husband Bruce Jenner.

And while we predict there will be plenty of gift-wrapped Searle under the Kardashian Christmas tree this year, the matriarch says it will be a roiling full house.

"I'm having everyone over my house for Christmas eve, I'm really excited. It's Mason's first real Christmas where he's walking around and having fun," said Jenner of her nearly 1-year-old grandson.

"He's got a lot of people who love him, and want to hold him, and go gaga over him. It's going to be a real fun Christmas."

Speaking of Gaga -- it looks like more heel-less shoes will be on the trendsetter's holiday wish list.
