Like many trends military influences come and go every few years. Remember the military hype in 2013? Three years later army inspired coats are having a moment again. Major brands like Prada, Marni and Maison Martin Margiela introduced a woolen army green military coat in their fall/winter collections. Coats that are tough yet sexy and feminine at the same time. They breathe power and strength because they’re double breasted and long. They have large collars and big pockets. Yet the cinched waists give them some elegancy as well. Making the military coat the ultimate item to top of a festive winter look. Gucci slippers, Burlington socks, a shiny Margiela skirt topped off with a red lined Burberry number. Tough love.

Trend Report SS2014: Grande Entrée

More than your shoes, your (it-)bag and your hair this season the statement making is really done by your coat. The styles are outspoken; boldly printed, bright colored or architecturally shaped and always carelessly tossed around the body these summer coats are bound to have you make a grande entrée. Our favorite one, shot in the streets of Paris is the yellow/greenish version, effortlessly paired with a chic tweed ensemble, showing some leg for the perfect proportions. A great coat goes a long way…

There is hardly any fashion piece that is worn as much and by as many diverse people as the trenchcoat. This iconic coat has a style that suits any person, no matter their age, gender, length, size or race.

Although Burberry claims they invented this coat, nowadays many large fashion labels have trenchcoats in their collections. And the fact that you can run itno someone wearing a trenchcoat every minute of the day proves these coats are still ultra-popular.

While we were in Milan, Paris and New York we ran into all kinds of people wearing the trenchcoat as well. They all wore the fashion piece  differently. So the saying that a trenchcoat tells you something about a person must be true.

If you – after watching our photos – haven’t yet got enough of the streetstyle trench you should take a look at The Art of Trench. Especially for Burberry fashion blogger Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) took the most amazing streetwear trenchcoat photos and Burberry created a website around it.

We couldn’t picture a world without the trenchcoat. If you ask us it’s like with denim, it’s here to stay forever.
