In a little over two weeks' time the Comme des Garçons for H&M collection will finally see the light of day, starting off in Tokyo on November 8th and then in 200 stores worldwide on the 13th.

The initial images of the collection looked a little OTT for high street tastes but the individual pieces reveal the collection to be a sober and grown up approach to cutting edge style. The jodphur trousers look like a well-tailored classic and the trench is an eye-catching staple. The neat shirts with cutaway collars come in a variety of colours and there's a plethora of polka dotted items for something a little fun. The centrepiece of the collection, the gothic frock coat is only available at the London Regent's Street store so expect that to be appearing on eBay for four times the price!

Trench coat: £99. Shirt: £29.99. Dress: £199. Jodphurs: £34.99. Dress: £69.99.
