The Mackintosh Summer/Spring collection is all about coats and jackets. It is evident that a lot of attention and detail has been put into outerwear this season, proving again that coats will always be an essential attire.


The cream hooded jacket will be perfect for the British weather, being both stylish wear and protective wear. Next to it is a long khaki brown jacket, added with a belt. The simplicity of this jacket is what makes it so elegant.

The overall collection has a very youthful feel, but simultaneously can be worn by an older audience. The youthful feel comes from the oversized jackets. To see a lot of plaid designs is very refreshing!


The navy blue coat is very smart, which follows the same design as the other jackets in the collection. Most of the jackets have collars and are light materials, easy to be worn in both the spring and the summer.


The colour’s of the collection are subtle and are paired with simple black tops. The most noticeable accessory on the jackets are the big black buttons. They help give the jackets more edginess, although simple embellishments, they bring the jackets to life.


If you’re looking for a jacket/coat that is stylish and comfortable then look no further than Mackintosh! The collection presents uniqueness and is very fashion forward, by providing jackets suitable for all ages and most occasions. I look forward to what they have to offer next. Remember, jackets and coats will never be out of style especially in this British weather, you cannot go wrong!
