styling notes The trench coat
Inspired by the unmistakable sartorial icon, the ARKET trench coat returns this season incorporating classic detailing and an updated silhouette tailored for the modern wardrobe.
Trench coats are traditionally cut at knee length, designed with a relaxed fit and a belted waist to fit over a uniform or a suit. It is intended to cover most of the body but still allow ease of movement thanks to its flared shape from the waist down.
The trench coat became popular in the late 1800s due to its innovative waterproof fabric which was lighter than traditional woollen coats, and more breathable than rubberised raincoats. Our design pays homage to its original functionality with dense poplin and twill weaves that will protect wearer from the elements.
