Getting the Cold Shoulder

If this summer is anything to go by, wrapping up warm is going to be at the forefront of our minds come winter. So if we must pile on the layers, let's make them as chic as possible.

British temperatures might not plummet to the depths Captain Scott faced on his infamous polar expedition but it is the inspiration behind Eudon Choi's Autumn Winter 2012 collection. Since 2010, when Korean born Eudon was selected as one of Vauxhall Scout's Ones to Watch, his career has gone from strength to strength, even receiving a nod from the notoriously hard to please Anna Wintour.

Taking a look at the rain outside, we might as well wave goodbye to our summer wardrobes and start investing in Eudon's deliciously snug cocoon coats and leather and shearling caps now. The collection is a modern homage to the polar attire worn on Scott's expedition. An icy colour palette of slates, greys and glacial blues is warmed up nicely with hand crushed sequin panels and fur trims.

Eudon proves that winter dressing needn't leave you looking like an abominable snowman, as he expertly balances out voluminous shapes and layers with pencil skirts and sleek trousers. The ready to wear collection is made for layering, pairing exceptionally cut jersey with loose fit knitwear. The strong lines and fit are perfect for the office whilst the fur trimmed coats, mittens and leather caps will keep you snug on the streets come winter.

Ready to wear doesn't always translate as wearable, but Eudon manages to strike the perfect balance between exceptionally cut basics and stand out pieces to create a collection that could strut straight off the runway and into your wardrobes.
