London Fashion week is all about nostalgia, street style is showing us why the trench coat is a must in every women wardrope.
Let’s take a moment to acknowledge that there is plenty of winter outerwear to gush over besides the beloved puffer. Worn by many this fashion month, the hefty, voluminous jackets—some boasting the Balenciaga logo and worn off the shoulders—have the street style set sprung. Outside the shows in London this week, however, it was all about the trenchcoat or, rather, the reinvention of a classic British wardrobe staple. During the past few days, we saw traditional khaki-colored trenches reworked with billowing or asymmetrical silhouettes. Some showgoers dressed in DIY versions, with belts buckled around wool overcoats or rope tied around a checked topcoat. Leather trenches were also spotted, as well as those designed in deep green suede.
