art of the trench

I know I have expressed my love of le trench coat on this blog at least once or twice before, however, two trench-related items have come up over the past few days so I am compelled to revisit this iconic piece of clothing...


First off... I, along with several other bloggers, was asked by Kristin of IdiosyncraticStyle what my ‘Holy Fashion Grail’ items would be.  I decided to go ultra-classic with my answers; instead of saying oh, i don't know a vintage Chanel/Givenchy gown or similar, I went with a black quilted Chanel bag and of course, a classic Burberry Trench Coat.  These are things I could see myself wearing forever because they will simply never go out of style. That's right, sometimes even I can be (stylishly) practical! check out idiosyncraticstyle
The second trench-related item is the launch of Burberry's "Art of the Trench" website (with images by the lovely Scott, The Sartorialist among others).  It includes street-style images of people around the globe wearing Burberry trench coats, a history of the trench over the past 100 years, and you can even submit your own photos which is pretty cool. So prepare to clock some Burberry browsing time...

I seriously need a perfect trench...I wrote a paper on the history and iconography of trench coats in college. :)
