The Trench

The phrase “iconic” is bandied about, but in this instance it’s well deserved. Elegant, timeless and with the power to elevate any look – be it a power suit or love-worn jeans – the trench coat is an instant sharpener.

The Duvet Design

Donning your own duvet is an irresistible idea, and thanks to the quilted coat, it’s a dream come true. From quilted country classics (think HRH at Balmoral) to sporty puffers and cutting-edge cocoons, there’s a downy design for every occasion.

The Teddy Bear

Brimful of attitude, faux sheepskins and shearlings have a fun-loving cool. Play on contrasts and pair with a girlish maxi and chunky boots for a look as witty as it is warming.

The Showpiece

A showstopping look in a single piece, the statement coat takes centre stage and sings its heart out. Anything goes: sultry leopard-print, kinky PVC, luscious embellishment, fabulous faux fur… There’s just one rule: have a blast!

The Mannish Cut

There’s an unbeatable swagger to this tailored piece; eminently self-assured, effortlessly powerful. This season welcomes double-breasted designs in charcoal hues, nailing the subtle luxe that stalked the AW20 runways.

The Classic

Cast in flawless black or chic camel, the neutral-coloured coat is a staple of the stylish wardrobe; your go-to when impressions count. Whatever the cut (and whatever lies beneath), these classic hues render a cover-up eternally and effortlessly on point.

The Chic Check

For all its dapper charm, there’s an energy to the checked cover-up that’s deliciously modern. Take your pick from masculine or fiercely feminine silhouettes (all slim arms and nipped waists) – it’s the zingy plaid they’ll fall for.
