We put our coats through their paces last winter – after all, walks were our only get-out-of-house-free card we had, and so outerwear was our main style outlet. A year on, designers are continuing to treat us to trophy coats; it’s just a matter of finding the style that best suits you – be that bold, big, or simply incredibly snug.
Bottega Veneta, Sportmax, The Situationist and Undercover prescribed colour-therapy coats to brighten up our winter mornings, while other designers drew inspiration from all their time spent indoors, surrounded by soft furnishings and learning new crafts, to keep us comfy and warm: see Balenciaga’s blanket coats, Gabriela Hearst’s upcycled patchwork for her earth-conscious Chloé debut, and Jonathan Anderson’s crafty-as-ever creations. For those of you hoping to stand out on the slopes, Miu Miu’s all-in-ones are on the more out-there end of the supersized, super-cosy puffer pack. Alternatively, if one great jacket just won’t cut it for everything you’ve got planned this winter, dabble with a Burberry trench, a Balmain blazer or a Rick Owens bomber from our new-season Selfridges Rental edit as and when the occasion calls for it.
