A no brainer, Jane Davidson is Edinburgh’s top pick for classic finds and contemporary staples. Ideal for those who see fit to steer clear from the overwhelming department store floors, you can be sure to find that stunning designer standout number. The Cocoon Coat in look-at-me green and Oversized Coat in camel or ultramarine by Harris Wharf London exude understated class, whereas the streamline tailoring and antiqued gold-tone hardware on the navy Fidelia Coat by Osman have shoppers flocking to it like Marc Jacobs to a kilt.
Subtle yet smouldering, every item from Hawico is a stunning symbol of Scotland. Definitely a place for those adamant on investing, Hawico has a small yet outstanding cashmere collection. This season’s showstopper is Maude, a cashmere tailored coat with a detachable Mongolian goatskin silver collar. Marnie, a cashmere coat in Herringbone, is another worthy contender. Rest assured, any coat from Hawico is like wearing a fluffy cloud at every waking moment. Bliss.
The kind of place you absolutely want to keep a secret, Epitome is a blissful haven overflowing with the most covetable clothing items. Those with an eye for design will yearn for the sleek silhouette and understated tones of the Heffe Dark Navy Coat by Studio Nicholson. On the contrary, those who favour practicality, warmth, but who like to make a statement, will want to wrap up in the W’s Military Parka in green or navy by Woolrich. Not just any parka, this bad boy is slim fit and lined with the fluffiest of fur to keep the cold at arm’s length. Go on — express some serious style game.
When it comes to tailoring, Walker Slater is in a league of its own. Timeless to a tee, this is where to get your rightful dose of Scottish Harris Tweed, Borders, and Shetland Tweed coats. From the fail-safe, belted, navy wool Nadia Swing Coat and Borders Tweed Sandaigh Coat, to the Victorian-inspired, dart-adorned Virginia in Shetland Tweed, it is clear that traditional cuts and versatility reign free.
‘Colourful in nature, Scottish at heart’, Ness Clothing is a one-stop shop for Scottish inspired bespoke designs punctuated with dancing prints and layers of tartan. Trending this season is the Hettie Parka, a cunning classic style of coat with a charming split personality. The interchangeable fur hood comes in fuschia, caramel, or blue and adds that extra touch of fun to winter wares. This parka is fully equipped for Scotland’s climate with a velvety fleece lining.
