The sun slowly rises over frozen grass on Clapham Common that makes a crisp sound as I walk over it in my Chanel ankle boots towards Clapham South tube station. I pull the wool dressing gown coat tighter around me as the cold wind hits my face making me move that little bit faster past a Starbucks smelling of freshly brewed coffee.
This used to be my routine every morning to work at Harpers Bazaar, and on the way I’d always pick up a breakfast from Pret with a hot chocolate. Over the 10 years in London I have managed to expand my coat collection significantly and although I can’t say how many squeezed their way into my wardrobe, it’s definitely more than 20.
So every Monday I’d choose a coat of the week to make sure it got it’s ‘cost-per-wear’ and have managed to narrow it down to my all time favourites.
