The remarkable journey of the Trench Coat; the endless affair to remember.
‘The soldiers sporting post war, the silver screen starlets enduring all Love scenes, first ladies waving amongst the crowds, supermodels strutting on runaways, modern femme fatale to the everyday aspiring Audrey Hepburns. TC was there.’ Here's History Style Icons revived:

Mr. John Emary of Aquascutum & Mr. Thomas Burberry of Burberry Prorsum, the 2 masterminds of the TC, would have been honored and humbled to witness the monumental evolution of the Trench Coat ,for Aquascutum & Burberry Prorsum will always remain the legendary expertise on the Trench Coat.

'the Trench Coat segues elegantly from war to peace.'Anon.

TC is stapled as Timeless attire but it does not mean it is resistant to change. It was assumed to be tan and to be worn 'one way'-cinched in.Christopher Bailey, Creative Director of Burberry Prorsum as of 2001, took TC & steered to mind-blowing directions. Since then all TCs has been exposed to all fantastical possibilities.

 Michael Hertz ,head of Aquascutum Womenswear Design, brought tradition and romantic elegance as Fall’s 2010 trend.Visions of Grace Kellys floated on the British runway,pairing with silver flats, madly knotted belts and floor length flute skirts.

And,Christopher Bailey,the rebellious sir shocks us with his Spring 2011 collection-the deadly shoulders & amplifying the pairings of electrifying belts.

The Art of Wearing it :
TC was never intended to replace the outfit; the sole purpose of the design is designed as an outerwear.

  • Shoulder seams should extend an inch out ; so then,the stiffened look can be prevented.
  • The upper portion should be tailored to fit,mind the excess fabric after all you are wrapped in canvas.
  • The Length's should also be adjusted to one's proportion;Lengthier TCs- below the knee,should be paired with impractical pumps.Of Course,leave any signs of summer shoes. Shorter TCs- above the knees,pair with pracical boots.
  • Belt is knotted,replaced with scarves, multiple thin belts or big boasting belts- tie it back or higher under the bust.
  • Do care for the volume of the attire being portrayed underneath. A-line trenches can afford voluminous skirts beneath and look dashing. Slimmer trenches, is best sticking to close fitting garments-pencil skirts, Jeans, snug sheaths.
  • A trench is borderline masculine,so there is no need to further prove this acknowledgement.If selecting a wardrobe for more of a convenience, do style with sensual touches.Slipping printed chiffon scarves underneath is sweet,slipping into T-straps shoes are divine.Pumps all dolled up; peep toes,kitten heels & Mary janes still creates similar results.

Orgasmic Fantasy; Burberry candy pink trench paired with the sweetest Stella M black lace jumpsuit,cocoa-copper Manolo Blahnik mary janes.Thin Hermes burgundy scarf and Alexander McQueen multicolored crytal skull clutch.I dance into a gold-cloud puff afro.

I've pulled myself together to portray as a respected lady filled on the belief of a practical romance.Darling Bailey,I won't tell anyone of your tantalizing touch,the stolen glances across the crowded rooms,season after season of fascinating my craving that I know not of- as long as I still have our affairs to remember,I will wear Burberry.
