At the top of autumn’s styling agenda? Staying warm. As blue skies turn grey and the mercury dips below double digits, heavy jackets and coats rise to the top of everyone’s AW18 wish list. Outerwear that fuses fashion with function promises to enrich your work-to-weekend line-up, fending off the chill while keeping your look cohesive with of-the-moment trends.


Arguably your biggest buy of the season in both wardrobe space and budget, the right coat will be the first thing people notice about your outfit – making it worth the extra effort. Not just a necessary layer but a look all its own, shapes rendered in shearling, wool-blends, and midi lengths marry practicality with personal style. Decode the colourways and cuts that tick every box and we promise your outerwear will not only see you through this season, but many more to come.

The White Move


Trade ‘less is more’ for making an entrance in the all-white Grayson coat. The vintage-influenced design proves that a pale palette can make its mark, especially when dressed tonally. Throw it over your shoulders as you sweep into a room or wear it over a classic party look for instant elegance.

Coat Check


Fact: heritage checks have the monopoly on winter patterns. Dressed in blazers, knitwear, trousers and now coats, the square route is undoubtedly the most fashion-forward way to approach layering. Playing with scale and proportion, the windowpane check on the Atticus coat takes this classic pattern into a more contemporary territory.

Demure Allure


In a season of excess, accenting your look with classic black staples has never been so appealing. Touches of faux fur on the collar of the Orson coat hark back to a 50s era of glamour, but when detached, the belted silhouette answers a decidedly more modern style memo.

Sugar Coat


For AW18, camel hues evolve from desert; to dessert-inspired. In a warm cinnamon shade, the Faris coat takes its cues from confectionary colours with a soft toffee undertone. Enriching layers of knitwear and suiting, it’s the chicest way to add a sweeter element to your outerwear collection.

The chill Factor


Don’t choose between practicality and personal style; marrying both, the Rosie jacket brings a feminine edge to classic parka shapes. With a detachable faux-fur hood and cuff detailing, this weather-proof design still holds its own, even when introduced to a more elevated ensemble.

Leather Weather


The most now shade of shearling to covet? A sumptuous midnight blue. This classic leather staple is given fresh appeal in colours that accentuate the depth of texture on plush fabrications. Dressed to impress with a silk dress or called-on to lift a laidback look, the Daisy jacket more than earns its place in your winter wardrobe.
