Be prepared to lust after each and every item.

Topshop Unique is one of the most influential and talked-about shows of fashion week. It pulls in a glittering front row of fashion's coolest set (including Jourdan Dunn, Lara Stone, Karlie Kloss, Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor and Suki Waterhouse) and pulls in models-of-the-moment, from Taylor Hill to Lineisy Montero, to strut down its catwalk.

However, it's the fashion that gets people excited. Each season, a slew of items spotted at the runway end up becoming cult-favourites. This year, the coats were the stellar, stand-out pieces and three days after the show took place, we're still dreaming about them.

The brand gave us an abundance of choices from bombers and bikers with furry shawl collars to ankle-grazing fuzzy numbers that evoked luxury 1970's heirloom vibes, floor-sweeping dusters and sultry gilets.

We were also greeted with oversized aviator jackets in felted khaki and metallic sheepskin, military overcoats inspired by army and navy surplus stores, oversized shearling jackets and billowing trenches.

You're guaranteed to see different versions of these coats across your streetstyle feed come January 2017 and here's our pick of the ten best.
