The trench coat’s fashion reign is unstoppable. This season, it is utility styles with leather trims, classic storm shields and epaulettes in oversized silhouettes that are ascending to power. Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection at Burberry was an explosion of beige (officially the color of the season) with the label’s signature trench ruling the runway via buttoned-up and belted classics, and simple shapes trimmed with silk scarfs. 3.1 Phillip Lim and Agnona took an equally timeless approach with irresistibly sophisticated floor-dusting designs, while Joseph’s powder-blue version is a masterclass in understated cool. Prefer a trench with a twist? Look to Sacai’s tartan hybrid, Khaite’s quietly subversive caped coat or Tibi’s high-shine chocolate offering.
