In the Trenches

Fashion news alert! Trench coats are back....Again.

Did they every really leave us? How can a fashion staple such as the eons classic trench every go out of style? Not possible I suppose. And I must admit, anything that makes you look like a secret agent's got my vote.

Trench coats are as famous as the stars who wore and continue to wear them. Remember Bogie and Ingrid Bergman, Hepburn (as in Katherine), Peter Falk's Columbo? Okay, his was kinda rumpled, but still a trench just the same.

Fast forward to the present. Designers have reworked the classic trench with a number of added twists. Sleeves and bottom halves are suddenly missing in action. Ruffles, pastel colors, stripes and all sorts of embellishments give today's modern fashionista choices that would make Bogie blush and Lt. Columbo want to further his investigation.

Here are some of the more interesting versions of the classic Trenchcoat. Feast and enjoy!

Alexander Wang, Aquascutum

Burberry, Christian Dior

Dries Van Noten, Jean Paul Gaultier

Loewe, Marc Jacobs

MaxMara, Nina Ricci

Pringle, Roberto Cavalli

I don't think trenches ever go out of style, they just change shape and colour. I like the modern shape but nothing beats the classic burberry, ti never goes out of style.
