Trend: Softly Belted
Investing in a super sumptuous belted coat was the overriding memo from the autumn/winter 2018 runways. The key takeaways: it should be cinched, oversized enough to hunker down under, and ankle-grazing in length. The Row has the monopoly on exquisite cashmere and wool styles (with price tags to match) and its exemplars are serious investments that will take you through this autumn and beyond. Elsewhere Victoria Beckham, Hermès, Jacquemus, and Gabriela Hearst have styles that will look equally elegant teamed with this season’s slouch boots.
Whether they come sculpted or left to fly loose, autumn’s love affair with checked tweeds and heritage weaves - given a modern reworking by Balenciaga, Lemaire, Erdem, Calvin Klein, Givenchy - shows no signs of waning.
Those of you with a penchant for leopard print will know that the quest for the perfect spot is no easy task. However, Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli, and Max Mara are due to make your heart sing - all have delivered brilliant spotted treats that demand your attention.
The volume was turned up to maximum when it came to tartans and check tweeds, popped in primary tones and scaled in size. See Self-Portrait, Michael Kors, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, and Sacai. This is heritage with a punch.
