What better way to spend a cold, rainy January morning than to see a collection of statement rain coats for autumn/ winter '16. Mackintosh's LCM presentation at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel was an insightful nod to the weather outside and a sure reminder that a raincoat is not only a fashion favourite, but a necessity for surviving the unpredictable UK winters.

Mackintosh presented an iconic British look for the ever stylish British gent. From a casual Sunday stroll in the country to the grind of the daily commute, the Mackintosh coat is to become man's new best friend for the cold months ahead. It is a symbolic staple that seems to constantly reinvent itself for the modern times, while still inspiring a classic look that never seems to date. Mackintosh can guarantee that their coats are a sure investment to look good and to beat the elements at their own game.

The simplicity of the collection is only complemented further by the earthy tonnes. Browns, khaki's, burgundies and greys give the range that autumnal feeling, while still being subtle enough to wear to the office.

Mackintosh caters for the smart, the casual and everything inbetween. Hooded coats shout laid back afternoons with jeans and trainers. While more tailored pieces feel smoothly suave and perfect for that day 'out and about' to night on the town transition. The versatility of each and every piece throughout the line, just shows how a coat can truly make an outfit stand out from the crowd.

So its time to embrace winter and invest in a statement piece for 2016, after all, if the weather is going to be as cold as it possibly can be, then there is no better way to see it through than in Mackintosh style.
