spring rtw 2011: the trench

29 Sep

Runways across the world have featured the classically chic outerwear known simply as the trench. Hemlines range from mini to ankle and most designers stayed withinin the neutral solids of khaki and white, and stayed true to the classic understated glam that the trench is synonymous with. Except, of course, for Burberry. NOBODY does a trench quite like Burberry…studded shoulders and corset belts? Yes please.

 

Alberta Ferretti

Dries van Noten

MaxMara

Salvatore Ferragamo

and for the most incredible coats…Burberry:

can I just say I’m obsessed with the fact that the second Burberry model is barefoot? Perhaps a wardrobe malfunction took place but I think bare feet with a studded trench is simply divine. I’m seriously tempted to find a inexpensive trench and try to spike up the shoulders.
