Front of house and against the backdrop of the architecturally acclaimed Monte Grisa Church, the principles of form and function ring true also in the modern fabrics and skilled tailoring which is Schneiders. This autumn we have picked some beautiful wool tweed jackets and coats with matching separates. Puffas are also at hand for the squally days.

From Rome, we have the gorgeous Alysi, each piece versatile, stylish and feminine. Look out for the silk twill florals, the coordinating kid mohair cardis and the punchy wool tweeds all in vanilla, cinnamon, tobacco and black. The boiled wool zebra coat is a stunner too. D’Exterior, also from Italy, brings glamour to every occasion. Sometimes the detailing is subtle, a scalloped edge on a bracelet sleeve. Sometimes not so. The smouldering bespangled chevron knit coat looks great with jeans or, to meet the Queen, with matching skirt.

Zyga from Paris is one of our prettiest collections this season. The delicately checked day dresses and fluid blouses and skirts are soft and personable. The competitively priced pebble tweed coats are especially lovely and worthy of a mention. Mes Soeurs et Moi from Belgium is already an all round favourite. This every day collection of comfortable well made pieces in carefully chosen natural fabrics is affordable and comes in vibrant greens, blues and purples, tempered with black and cognac.
