After a reshuffle of my wardrobe, I realised that I have an array of jumpers and tops to last me a lifetime and all seasons. So luckily I came across Martyn Bal's sculptured coats to give me new inspiration. I love the grand effect of the collars, giving a military armor sense. The thick padding and subtle detail make the coats look like they were moulded out of steel, emphasising the masculine presence. So with these ideas in mind, I took to a Sunday market, fishing out a small trench coat and layering it over a vintage Fred Perry find.
