KEEP IT MINIMAL
Contemporary zips and minimalist styling will help you stay ahead-of-the-moment this season.
With the winter chill on the horizon, now is the time to invest in your brand new winter coat. Whether you're after an oversized shape or a defined silhouette, our AW12 outerwear edit has all you need to stay wonderfully wrapped up in style.
There are many reasons we would choose summer over winter. The sunshine, the beach and the bright blue skies all give us reason to look forward to the season. There’s one thing though, that winter will always have over summer. Unparalleled style.
Who can deny that they don't secretly long to wrap up in a luxurious winter coat? Summer’s heat can grow tiresome and autumn’s rain is a nuisance, however the winter chill can be instantly diminished with a chunky piece of outerwear. Not to mention, they look effortlessly chic.
So with countless styles to go for, the big question is which one will you choose this year?
Well, the obvious answer is you need a coat for every occasion and every mood. The most important thing to consider for AW12 is the significance of shape.
Cocoon shapes are big news this season, proving that more truly is more when it comes to size. In biology, cocoons are of course used for metamorphosis, which is why they’re the perfect shape of outerwear to reside in through to spring.
Elsewhere, there’s a different approach to the season’s outerwear shape on offer. From curved hems and neat collars to fit-and-flare designs, strike a directional silhouette this season in a tailored style.
AW12 is also all about giving classic styles contemporary updates, allowing established designs to be kept fresh.
The pea coat is the perfect example of this, a style that started its life as a popular choice for sailor men. In 2012, the pea coat has made a contemporary, feminine comeback thanks to its fitted shape. All aboard.
So thanks to the winter coat, we now have reason to love this beautiful season and might even take a trip or two to the beach. Cocooned, of course.
