Love them or hate them, colder climes are inevitable. Our philosophy? If you can’t beat them, lean in. Winter forecasts herald a welcome influx of sumptuous layering and coats galore – which, if you ask us, makes for ample reason to rejoice. Autumn/Winter 2019, we’ll see you now.
In The Trenches
The classic trench coat is a perennial style icon that’s steeped in history. Burberry remains synonymous with the gabardine archetype – tracing its roots all the way back to the frontline of World War I. For a modern interpretation, look no further than London Fashion Week-favourite Rejina Pyo, who versions the silhouette for the now in a buttery touch of vegan leather.
Forget what you’ve heard… All heroes wear capes! Swirling and romantic with elegance to spare, this Little Women-approved silhouette is among the runaway outerwear trends of AW19. Team a classic cashmere version with vintage-inspired florals and ankle boots if, like us, you fancy yourself something of a modern-day March sister.
All Puffed Up
Fear not the XXL puffer jacket! Far from the preserve of hardy mountaineers alone, this season’s emboldened designs put pay to the idea that insulation equates to out-and-out bulk. Ienki Ienki puts itself on the map as the name to remember for all things directional (think fierce python prints and high-octane metallics); meanwhile, Nanushka revises the staple for AW19 in the most delicious faux leather for a hit of sophistication.
