A new take on an old classic. The Trench
I am crazy about trenches; I only had two although I wish I have a whole trench wardrobe. It’s something about the rich detailing: pockets, buttons, belt, shoulder boards. It’s the ultimate expression of the casual elegance. Anyway, each season I watch fashion trends to spot some new ideas. And for this fall designers have come up with some interesting takes on this classic fashion piece.
Luxurious fabrics: exotic leather and skins, satin and other glossy fabrics.
Bold, rich colors and super sized patterns.
Innovative design details like asymmetric buttoning and flare cuts. My favorite: that “Victorian” trench from designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
