Looks like summer is officially at an end, as the stores slowly begin to fill with autumn/winter fashions and the sky begins to agree with the dark and moody hues of the new season to further deprive us of sunshine.
Either way, things are bubbling away at Somerset House, and all the other locations that’ll be a part of London Fashion Week magic next month, and so it’s time to neatly tuck away your SS’12 Jil Sander investments and look to the new season.
Alongside fashion month, September spells cooler climes. So with the truckload of gadgets you’ll be needing during the most important week in the fashion calendar, don’t forget to wrap up warm to avoid unnecessary chills that will result in wasted to-be-seen-at party invites.
Take your cue for a fashionable fall from our pick of 5 coats worth investing in now, not only to keep you faithfully snug, but also guaranteed to clock up serious style brownie points! Think fur trims, military influences, opulent lamé finishes and minimalist shapes for a fash-tastic take on the Fall 2012 coat.
