Firstly, dispel any Inspector Gadget connotations you might have around the trench coat. The winter equivalent of a white t-shirt, the timeless trench offers a masterclass in seasonal reinvention. And although it’s been around in various iterations for years, never has it felt so prolific as right now. Seen on street style vanguards and in the collections of a number of renowned designers, the trench — whether it be coloured, leather, patterned or neutral — has established itself as the overcoat of the season, and it isn’t hard to see why.
Here we hope a line up of some of the best of the season serves as inspiration for your winter wardrobe.
