At the start, we mentioned trenchcoats made from Ikea’s Frakta shopping carrier. This one from MSGM (price unavailable) is among them.
Worn buttoned up, Celine’s trenchcoat is, well, a trenchcoat. Unbuttoned, it’s a jacket with a trenchcoat sewn on. Linen blazer with attached sandwashed silk trench, $10,600, and rayon boots with python skin panels, $1,600, Celine.
Burberry, synonymous with trenchcoats, has just reintroduced its Heritage Trench Coats. These come in three fits: slim (shown here in the British brand’s distinctive plaid), classic, and relaxed. The former two are in the signature cotton gabardine, while the latter is in tropical gabardine (a lighter cotton with the same durability). $3,895, Burberry.
Cotton trenchcoat, $835, Sandro. Polyester tank dress, $890, Pleats Please Issey Miyake. Calf leather boots, $4,100, Hermes.
Linen jacket with attached cotton trenchcoat, $9,200, and linen pants, $1,550, Celine. Leather sandals, $625, Maje.
Is that a trenchcoat hanging off a denim jacket? Yes, if you wear the jacket. If you wear the trench, the jacket hangs on its back. Denim jacket/ trenchcoat, $4,700, wool bermudas, $1,340, and tweed pumps, $1,790, Balenciaga.
Denim trenchcoat, $1,950, Burberry.
