Available from February 22-27th, Colette will carry an exclusive line of trench coats designed in collaboration with Burberry. Designer, Christopher Bailey worked directly with the Paris specialty store on reinventing the label’s classic outerwear piece. Fabric was ruched and gathered, where storm flaps normally would be placed and on hips, forming an hourglass silhouette on a traditional length. Belted, cropped versions received a similar treatment where knots transformed hemlines into peplum details and shoulders became broader. The collar of each piece has been encrusted in gold studs, overlying the brand’s synonymous plaid print to ensure the connection to Colette’s keen fashion eye.
