THE INVESTMENT PIECE
In terms of a classic wardrobe staple, it’s hard to go past a double breasted wool coat or a classic trench in stone or camel. These chic, timeless designs go beyond trends with a transeasonal cut to see you through multiple seasons. With this type of coat, aim for the best quality you can afford in a beautiful natural fibre such as this Italian wool blend, or opt for a high-quality cotton blend. Nothing less.
