Red/deep pink and black woollen jacket with fur collar

She wears deep pink and black woollen jacket with a black fur (possibly fake) collar and hem worn with matching skirt and black gloves, with black high heels (inside right). The jacket is fastened with three frogs. How do I know it’s red and black? The jacket turns up again next series when Gabrielle Drake wears it in The Hidden Tiger. Here’s a picture of it. Note that the fur hem has been removed.
