The trenchcoat: an eternal classic
In the world of fashion, there are several pieces considered worthy of making an investment. One of them is the trenchcoat; an iconic piece that can be worn quite easily and that is perfect for any occasion. The history of the trenchcoat begins in England in the year 1850, when Thomas Burberry conceived the idea of a waterproof coat. This is how the designer created a fabric that both repelled water and protected against cold weather, while also being breathable. He called this fabric gabardine. He would later use it to create the trenchcoat, which would become a reference in the history of fashion from then on. In the First World War, this accessory was used as part of the uniform of the British infantry.
This garment became popular during the 1920s, both in Europe and America. From the 1960s onwards, it became one of Hollywood’s favorite costume pieces, a position it has retained to date. The beige trenchcoat worn by Audrey Hepburn in the romantic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany’s helped confirm the actress’s status as a style icon.
Nowadays, the trenchcoat is never missing in big fashion shows, both for men and women. There’s no doubt that it’s a very chic and infallible it piece. That’s why it can’t be missing in your closet, so get inspired! I challenge you to try wearing it with absolutely anything. Regardless of the outfit, you will always get a fabulous result!
