Mayber it's the elbow patches. Or maybe it’s the fact it’s been worn by half of celebland, from Katy Perry to Anna Friel. Whatever the reason, All Saints’ snug-fitting leather biker jacket dubbed The Walker was a total sell-out last year. Luckily for everyone who wants to pretend their Harley is parked just outside, the coveted coat is back by popular demand and will be in stores at the end of October. £350, allsaints.com

The result of incredibly naive and hideously misjudged online marketing campaigns, brought down by rampant social-media sarcasm. c.f. 'Why I Shop at Waitrose' and FemFresh’s ‘froo-froo’ efforts
