A British Classic With Contemporary International Appeal

Two British iconic brands, Burberry and Aquascutum, both take credit for creating this timeless piece. However, it was Thomas Burberry who first brought the design to the United Kingdom War Office in 1901, thus introducing it as a military raincoat. Nicknamed the ‘trench coat’ by front line soldiers in WW1, the coat quickly gained international popularity for its simple style and versatility.

Few items of clothing have managed to transcend gender and enjoy such longevity in the spotlight. For over a century countless stars and designers have chosen the simple trench coat and made it their own. Although it is constantly being ‘re-invented’ in different colors, cuts and fabrics, the original beige cotton remains the most sought after style. It is simple, elegant and allows the wearer to accessorize with their own personality.

From city sophistication with heels and a briefcase to summer flats and a floral dress the Trench can be adapted to any style or event, year after year. Perennially fashionable, it is a basic must for any wardrobe.
