Apropos of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and this year’s romantically themed Chelsea In Bloom, may we suggest this incredible leather coat by Fendi for your sartorial consideration?

Yes, it’s flamboyant; yes, it’s a long way from understated – but it is a wonderfully singular piece that we guarantee you will turn to season after season.

And here’s why: Fendi has used its phenomenal skills with leather to create this coat that, although covered in flowers, is ultra lightweight, thanks to a very clever construction process that uses heat rather than sewing, thus doing away with excess bulk.

Another reason: that palette. It’s very much of-the-moment, in a rich sage green with Oriental flowers in delicate pastels, but the tonal nuances mean that this isn’t a coat destined to be worn only in spring: the underlying warmth of that green makes it equally wearable for Autumn.

Lastly, versatility. Really. Wear it over a crisp shirt with ripped jeans and a pair of smart loafers, or slung over your shoulders with a pretty floral dress in complementing colours, or belt it and wear it as a dress, as it was shown on the runway.

Fendi, leather trench coat, £7,800. Available now at 26-27 Sloane Street, SW1X 9QP.
