River Island's coats are perfect for the approaching gloomy autumn and winter evenings

RIVER ISLAND’S latest collection of coats includes some choice outerwear pieces for men.
Focusing on silhouettes and varying textures, the line boasts both slick tailoring and casual luxe.
The palette consists of plush shades of plum, burnt orange and deep russet, complimented with earthy tones of stone, olive and sage greens.
Statement collars are a reoccurring motif of this collection, with faux fur making a larger than life appearance on parkas, and shearling polonecks and lapels give a Nordic air to the cold-weather essentials.
Technical hardware, such as functional patch pockets and chunky metal zips, imbue a note of authenticity while country elegance is touched on with hints of tweed.
This all creates a solid, yet somewhat out-there offering for the high street brand men’s customers this coming season.
