DESIGNER: Jaeger London

INSPIRATION: "The great winter coat" is the starting point, with plenty of experimentation with proportion and colour-blocking. As design director Stuart Stockdale told us in our Jaeger collection preview, Kensington Palace's archive and its legacy of past royalty and courtiers, including the Duke of Windsor's wardrobe, was a big influence.

TOP LOOKS: Unsurprisingly, it was the coats that stole the show. Exaggerated lapels and dramatic maxi lengths looked new and rather cosy, while the jewel-coloured cigarette pants and slouchy mohair knits offered easy sartorial elegance.

ACCESSORIES: Spat and piping details boots and shoes in dazzling block colours.

WHO WAS THERE: Olivia Palermo, Jameela Jamil, Harold Tillman - and Jourdan Dunn made her return to London Fashion Week on the runway.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Jaeger's rich colour palette of mustards, burnt orange, pillar box red, miltary green, camel and cobalt and beautifully cut creations made for a sumptuous and timeless collection, and the best of the winter coats will no doubt be on editors' shopping lists come autumn.
