Battersea Blanket by Mary Penny

A cosy blanket is always useful, whether for wrapping around yourself to keep warm or to lay out your picnic on in summer.

This Battersea Blanket by Mary Penny is more stylish than the traditional tartan blanket and being designed by a graduate of the Royal College of Art, is perhaps closer to a piece of art than your usual bedding. The iconic London landmark Battersea Power Station has been woven into the blanket in bold colours against a subdued background on one side, with the colours reversed on the other . It measures 140cm by 190cm and is made from 100% Lambswool.

Buy from Thorsten Van Elten for £215.

Bon-Bon Coat by J Crew


Heritage style fabrics can instantly transform a simple item into something classic and expensive looking. Simplicity and chic are often the key to an effortless retro look, shown here in this Bon-Bon Wool Blend Coat by US brand J Crew.

The moss green shade enhances the richness of the fabric, providing a textural look that contrasts with the basic cut. The blanket coat style provides a late sixties-look military influence, taking a very masculine edge into womenswear.

It's now available from Net-a-Porter for £335.
