In London we haven’t had a truly cold snap yet this year but I’m bracing myself. If the threats are true that we’re in for the harshest winter since 1949, then I plan to be thoroughly insulated. (more…)
Burberry showed a lot of coats on it’s Spring-Summer 2014 runway. Of course, they were light spring coats, not heavy wool ones. And they were knitted, rather than waterproofs.
As is Burberry’s way, you can order these now online, meaning they will work for autumn as well as spring.
Here are three of my favourites – you have until September 30th to get your order in:
Burberry knitted merino wool trench
I have a version of this Cos coat from two winters ago with thick black and navy stripes and (
actually fake*) slit pockets. It’s the one thing I own that gets commented on every time I wear it. (*Ok the pockets aren’t fake, thank you to my lovely commenter for pointing that out.)
The cut is faultless and the quality is great – it frequently gets mistaken for Prada/Marni/Jil Sander. So if you’re a fan of a bracelet-sleeved cocoon coat, then get in quick cos (lol) these aren’t going to stick around long. (more…)
