When the days are dark and cold you just want to wrap-up warm in a luxurious Winter coat, but choosing the right one can be difficult. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend an amount which could have purchased a small car on what you have convinced yourself is an investment piece (it'll work out as 10p per wear if I wear it every Winter for the next 20 years) only to be sick of the sight of it come November still faced with months of gloom ahead.
The 3/4 length camel overcoat from Chloe's A/W 10 collection is the perfect example of a coat that will last you a lifetime. Its classic cut and colour immediately set the wearer apart with an air of sophistication - being that you are statueque enough to wear it.
If you want someting very 2010, Chanel have a Winter range full of fur-trimmed items to choose from. The models striding down the glacier-inspired catwalk had little chance of catching cold. But it is Burberry who have set my pulse racing with what I think will become the must have item for A/W 10 - the sheepskin aviator jacket.
