Worn by celebrities, royals and fashionistas, the Manuela is a timeless piece that surpasses trends.

One of the label's beloved Icon designs and a favourite of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, the Max Mara Manuela coat is an enduringly refined silhouette crafted in the softest camel hair. Exemplifying a penchant for timelessly luxurious outerwear, the nonchalant wrap style will have you reaching for it on every occasion.

Each season, husband-and-wife duo Luke and Lucie Meier exercise exacting restraint on an effortless blend of the elevated, clean and sensual. The latest blend of sumptuous materials delivers the ease we’re all craving, in a covetable, impeccably tailored wardrobe you’ll rely on for life.

Made from wool and lined with cotton, this hooded vest has a boxy, oversized fit and double-breasted silhouette. It's finished with silver-tone buttons and functional pocket details. Style over a fitter turtle neck and wide-leg pants for an effortlessly chic day look.

Max Mara's cult 'Teddy Bear' coat was such a hit when it first launched in 2013 that it was reissued again and again - the label says that wearing it "feels like returning home." This oversized style is made from wool and alpaca with touches of silk for a super soft handle. Layer yours over everything from slip dresses to leather pants.

Chloé's coat is a chic and sophisticated choice for colder seasons. It's made from smooth wool-blend and cut for a slightly loose fit with puffed sleeves and a waist-cinching belt. Match your jewelry to the sculptural gold-tone button at the front.

Canada Goose's 'Mystique' coat is made from the brand's 'Performance Satin' nylon, which looks and feels luxurious while providing superior insulation. Known for protecting cast and crew members on film sets in sub-zero temperatures, it has a sweeping full-length silhouette and is padded with signature soft, cozy down. The extended hood trim and storm flap offer extra protection against the elements.

No matter what your plans are or where you're headed, you'll feel instantly chic when slipping into SAINT LAURENT's trench coat. It's made from glossy merlot vinyl in an oversized, longline shape and has classic epaulettes and buckle-fastening tabs at the cuffs. Layer it over leggings or dresses.

Dries Van Noten's coat is made from slightly sheer orange crepe and overlaid with gray guipure lace - the contrast in the colors is so striking. Designed for a relaxed fit, it has a belt to cinch in the waist and a wide, structured collar.

Marant Étoile's coat makes winter dressing so easy - it's designed with a scarf-like draped panel, for a cohesive look without any effort. Made from a soft wool-blend, it has a relaxed shape traced with fringed trims.

A longer version of this impressive shearling coat opened Chloé's Fall '23 runway show marking it as a key style this season. It's been crafted by leatherwork artisans in Italy with substantial lapels and visible patchwork-like seams. The gold-tone 'nugget' buttons are a signature detail from the collection.

Dodo Bar Or's 'Lidor' coat is nostalgic of glamorous styles from the '70s, and you don't even have to search through countless vintage shops to score such a treasure. It's made from exceptionally soft yet substantial shearling and has an oversized, longline shape with dramatic notched lapels.

Floral motifs are a mainstay in Dries Van Noten's collections, and the ones on this coat have a distinct, vintage feel. It's made from shell that's quilted and padded throughout for warmth and has an enveloping, oversized silhouette.

Shoreditch Ski Club's 'Marlowe' coat is exactly what you'll want to bundle up in on a cold day. It's made from army-green shell that's padded for warmth and fitted with cozy cream shearling panels. The enveloping, longline shape traps body heat for extra warmth.

Dries Van Noten's coat combines the designer's strong sartorial background with the creative flair we love and expect from the label. Made from colorful metallic brocade that's woven with an eccentric floral motif, it has lightly padded shoulders and a back vent for easy movement. The satin-twill lining ensures smooth layering over any outfit.

Designed by upcoming British and Italian textile graduates trained at Dumfries House, the second installment of The Modern Artisan collection is every bit as beautiful as the last. This belted blanket coat is tailored from undyed Shetland wool locally sourced from Lovat Mill in Scotland using zero-waste pattern cutting, meaning every piece of material is used including the fringe selvedge at the hem.

The contrasting checks take inspiration from the irregular textures of Highgrove's 'Wall of Gifts', constructed from pieces of architectural stone collected by His Majesty The King Charles III.

A chic and cozy take on biker jackets, Isabel Marant's 'Ostya' style has an asymmetric zipper that can be adjusted to reveal more or less of the plush underside. It's made from shearling with a velvety suede reverse and has directional exposed seams and dropped shoulders that enhance the loose feel.
