The Art of the Trench


The iconic Trench Coat has become an artist media outlet with the launch of a website dedicated solely to the classic Burberry rain gear called “The Art of the Trench”. Burberry’s Creative Director Christopher Bailey has enlisted famed street photographer Scott Schuman, from The Sartorialist, to shoot people around the world in the fashionable outerwear piece. These real life pictures have been taken on Schuman’s travels from London, Milan, New York, Paris, Berlin, Sao Paulo and Venice during the past three months.
