Five Amazing Coats for AW 16
TED BAKER - Longline wool-blend wrap coat
"When autumn and winter are in full swing, your outerwear is the first thing people will notice about your look; so make sure you create the right impression by choosing this wrap-style coat from Ted Baker's 'Mission Impeccable' AW16 collection. Cocooning your body in a cosy wool-blend, this is a well-structured option that's framed with padded shoulders and comes with a self-tie belt so you can cinch the silhouette to your desired fit."
MR & MRS ITALY - Shearling and cotton-twill parka coat
"Luxury design house, Mr & Mrs Italy, has become an industry reference for modern easy-to-wear layers; reimagining vintage military parkas with indulgent and colourful shearling interiors. A fine example of this signature design detail, this parka coat is characterised by blush-toned lining that underpins the hood and body. Composed in cotton-twill, the details are kept classic for timeless appeal."
JACQUEMUS - Le Manteau oversized wool coat
"Founded by Simon Porte Jacquemus in 2009, JACQUEMUS channels a unique French sensibility with a focus on exaggerated proportions and avant-garde reworks of classics. This reimagined wrap-style wool coat turns up the volume with notched lapels, dropped shoulders and an asymmetric hemline. Supersized neon-yellow buttons make a surprising and unexpected detail. Wear yours with everything from modern tailoring to denim."
SELF-PORTRAIT - Floral guipure-lace parka coat
"Self-Portrait’s roomy parka coattransforms this constant companion from its utilitarian roots into something far more special. Constructed with a satin-twill base, it’s intricately layered with guipure-lace patchwork – one of founder and designer Han Chong’s hallmarks. It’s fully lined for a smooth fit and finished with a generous hood. This is one protective and pretty layer you’ll reach for time and time again."
ETRO - Floral-print wool-crepe coat
"Familiar Etroflorals in fine silk laced the AW16 edit as Creative Director Veronica Etro found herself in a nostalgic mood. Decidedly minimalist in shape with clean lines sculpting a boxy form, this wool-crepe coat is framed by warming florals and a retro geometric print that trims the cuffs and placket."
