This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of London’s Fashion Week,
a milestone that marks the progress the British fashion capitol has
made over the past few decades and all the innovations its seen.
Despite the lukewarm response the event has received the past several
seasons, (resulting in labels taking their runway shows elsewhere),
many British-bred designers are returning to their home turf this year
to honor the venues of their native culture. Legendary names like Burberry Prorsum, Matthew Williamson, Jonathon Saunders, and Pringle of Scotland have all signed up to attend; as a result, Vogue’s

Various trends made famous through London’s influential fashion history
appeared in venues all over the world in recent seasons — especially in
the form of the time-honored classic, the fall coat. So for the
chillier upcoming season, there is truly no better way to pay homage to
25 years of London fashion (and its signature blustery weather), than
by donning one of these unique yet elegant cover-ups. Cheerio!
