always exciting and heralding the real start of autumn, this weekend saw London Fashion Week, Premier Vision in Paris, and numerous weekend magazines showing distrinctive trends in coats.  Rejecting the "shaggy bear "look, chesca has gone for  quilts , wools and textured 3/4 coats.

Our first coat of the season, an ivory/black  jacquard cocoon coat has sold out, although a repeat will follow next month for those prepared to be patient-or try it in mink and black-also one of the season's best sellers-we call it a coatigan!.  This week, we are following up with our threequarter seamed coat, which is stunning with trousers (our model, Katie, has been photographed wearing all 4 colours- note the interesting zip pockets-a fashion statement in their own right, but perfect to hide that all important credit card--now swipeable on buses and trains.) Brighten up those winter days in hot pink, red or vibrant orange or be subtle in "Grace Kelly" oatmeal.  if the pre-orders were anything to go by, this will be a sell out too.  Prefer a jacket, try our latest black hip length waterfall, with slouchy pockets in 100% wool.  Prefer a full length coat, try our double collar coat in black or viibrant red.

Do have a glimpse , in spite of the warm weather-you won't regret it
