January brings the start of a new year and is the perfect time to make some changes to one’s wardrobe. January is also one of the coldest months in Germany, so it pays to make clever purchases that are both stylish yet practical. The autumn/winter 2017 collections saw plenty of inspiration for winter dressing, with coats one of the season’s cult purchases. Long leather trench coats were a strong look at Louis Vuitton and Valentino, with Valentino’s lilac number providing a pretty take on winter dressing. Marni and Miu Miu proved that 1970s prints are still a top trend, with brightly patterned coats coming to the fore. Eudon Choi and Coach’s standout pieces were generously sized puffer coats, a big trend that was also seen in the men’s AW17 collections.
