Fashion Icon – the Trench Mac

The trench coat has, over the decades, become an iconic garment. There are only a few truly iconic fashion looks and this is one of them. Winser’s new collection of light trench coats has just arrived online. The contemporary trench works across new fabrics and lengths.  Ours is 100% Poly Twill and comes in three styles.  Details are pared down to the minimum and many of the traditional extras have been done away with, just leaving the essence of the design reliant more on cut and colour.   The Tailored Trench Coat, £195, has a boyish cut and is worn unbelted, the fabric has a slight sheen and all the coats are both casual and dressy.  The A-line Trench Coat, £195, slick and belted, with generous stylish lapels is also available in a shorter length, £175.  All three styles are available in black and pearl. The trench was originally designed for soldiers and was suitably heavy, but when worn by a woman she looks fragile but sporty.  A delicate flower in a man’s world, think Audrey Hepburn, never more elegant and vulnerable than when wearing the trench.
