The Modern Trench




This spring the trench coat has been reinvented. It's all in the details. Volume, strong shoulders, pleats, ruching, and knots made Burberry's spring collection a gorgeous sight. The trench coat has always been a classic and right now it's more glamourous than ever.

I am strongly considering the red, but since my wardrobe is all black except accessories it would really cause a stir.

Okay, all of this rain gear talk has me looking forward to spring showers! I'll take the Burberry - though I'd opt for pants to go along with it...

The Burberry lead picture I had seen in Vogue et al. I just love what they are doing to tweak their line. I tried on a Burberry wool trench last year--very tight to the body, belted, gorgeously made. I wish I had bought it.

I adore the Kate Spade trench -- I'm so mad at myself for not scooping it up before they sold out in my size!

Go Target. Quite cute. Happy to see a little splash of men's fashion in here as well :)

Karena- I'm very excited for the debut of Gaultier's target collection.

Style Redux said...

JeanMarie- No, that would be exciting! I am all about wearing black myself, but incorporating a colorful bag or coat makes black look new again.

Style Redux said...

ticklishfromadistance- I'm loving it all so much.

Style Redux said...

Marija- I'll take the Burberry too. If only!

Style Redux said...

Dagny- That would be the ultimate piece. Can't not feel sexy wearing that!

Style Redux said...

Washington Cube- You should have! Burberry makes the best trenches and the creativity that went into the spring collection is awe-inspiring.

Style Redux said...

Averill- I hate when that happens. I really love the bow detail on trenches, so sweet.

Style Redux said...

Thomas- I love when designers team up with Target. That trench is cute and only $60, not too bad.

Nothing outshines Burberry's new line of trenches; truly fabulous. GPG's trench for Target however is terrific. Surely worth lining up for on the day they are launched. Such a great line-up for us all to admire. x

Love these trenches!

Style Redux said...

Dumbwit Tellher- Yes, I cannot wait for that Gaultier Target trench. Too cute.

Style Redux said...

Terresa- Such a great trend.

Trench coats are truly one of the BEST designed-coats of all time! Love this post especially the offerings from Burberry... one of my favorite brands for a long time but now more than ever since they're been freshening-up the look lately.

I'm taking one of my, er, many trench coats to Paris in March: a black one with a bit of a shoulder, nipped-in waist and shorter hemline.

Great post, thanks!
