Trendy Trench Coats Fall-Winter 2016-2017
The trench coat is an indispensable garment for the autumn-winter season. From ancient times until today, this type of clothing have undergone many changes: every year, designers are experimenting with its length and cut, using various fabrics and décor elements. Therefore, let’s see what trench coats designs will be fashionable in the 2016-2017 cold season.
Leather trench coats
Outer garments, made of leather, can be found currently in the “personal” collection of every fashionista. This material continues for some time to conquer the fashion catwalks. And not incidentally: leather jackets and trench coats are able not only to protect its owner of whirlwind and rain, but it can also give the entire look a slight note of brutality, chic and mystery. In the new cold season, a special place occupied black patterns, which can be found in the collections of Max Mara, Tommy Hilfiger, Aquilano, Miu Miu, Proenza Schouler, Creatures of the Wind, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Antonio Berardi, Anthony Vaccarello.
Loewe, Proenza Schouler, Cedric Charlier, Karen Walker, Tods, Valentino, Celine, Escada, Lacoste, Derek Lam also opted for leather. However, most often in their collections was encountered colored leather. The brands recommend us to buy brown, blue, plum, beige and yellow leather patterns.
Fashionable are again maxi trench coats, the hem of which can be so long that will remind us of some trains. It is difficult to judge how practical is this length and how suited they are in wet conditions, however, such designs are looking truly luxurious. If you still want something more practical, then you can choose a trench coat design, which will reach the ankle. Maxi trench coats recommend us wearing this season Zac Posen recommended to us, Zimmermann, Vera Wang, Pamella Roland, Naeem Khan, Christian Siriano, Akris, Polo Ralph Lauren, Dsquared, Alexis Mabille, Dries van Noten.
Sleeveless Fashion Trenches
A sleeveless trench coat can also be considered a very contradictory garment. On the one hand, it looks original and modern, on the other, it is very impractical. But it seems that this property does not bother too much fashionistas and designers because in their collections are encountered more often sleeveless designs. Sleeveless trench coats were included in presentations of the following fashion brands Veronique Leroy, David Koma, Dennis Basso, Opening Ceremony, etc.
Cape and poncho trench coats
Capes and ponchos are garments that appeared in the 60’s-70’s years. Although, we must say that they appeared more preseeding: researchers argue that Indians still wore similar clothes. Considering designers passion for retro, it is no wonder why on the catwalk many patterns of this type are. All the diversity is presented by Gucci, Daks, Chloe, Roksandič Luisa Beccaria, Naeem Khan, Trussardi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada, Mulberry.
This is another fashion trend, namely the famous oversize style. Based on the examples of new “cold” collections, designers have shown us once again that oversize clothes really need to be worn. How exactly are showing us Iceberg, Tome, Acne Studios, Kenzo, Balenciaga. We must mention that in the new cold season, the focus was especially on bulky and elongated sleeves.
Among current fabrics used by brands to create trench coats can be enlisted fabrics characterized by high impermeability because trench coats made of such fabrics will be a good friend in rainy and windy season. We can include skin, patent leather, spandex, nylon, etc. Trench coats of such fabrics are practical, durable, resistant and attractive. In addition, they perfectly repel moisture. Examples of waterproof fabrics can be seen at Narciso Rodriguez, Jil Sander, Lacoste, M Missoni, Alexis Mabille.
However, do not think that designers were limited to waterproof fabrics. For dry autumns, for example, woven and knitted patterns are absolutely ideal (Sibling, Missoni, Monse). Other designers have decided to dress models in transparent chiffon trench coats (Giorgio Armani).
Ae special place has also occupied the denim. Denim trench coats decided to beat all popularity records. These can be found in the collections of 6397, Miu Miu, Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney. As we can see, most designers have chosen denim trench coats of maxi length which sometimes reached the floor. Such designs can be matched both with jeans and trousers, and with evening and cocktail dresses.
Custo Barcelona, Bibhu Mohapatra, Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Julien David, Iceberg, Max Mara embellished their fabrics with sheen. Such designs look very original, giving the image a touch of festivity.
The new fall-winter season enjoy us with an enormous diversity of prints. Courreges, Bottega Veneta, Mother of Pearl, Etro included in their collections geometric prints. Julien David, Salvatore Ferragvb21amo opted to zigzag and abstract prints. Ermanno Scervino, Givenchy, Bottega Veneta presented the fans luxury designs with leopard prints. Alberta Ferretti, Alexander McQueen, Antonio Marras, Erdem, MSGME, Kenzo did not want to say goodbye to summer prints including them in its winter collections and in result we are able to wear trench coats with flowers. Burberry has chosen reptile skin.
Finally we will tell you something about the color range. Here, as always, we can talk about monochromatic and shades of beige (Derek Lam, Gucci, Blumarine, Dion Lee). Such designs are considered universal and very practical because can be matched with clothes in absolutely any shade.
In addition, designers propose us to wear also colored items: Roland Mouret, Toga, MSGME – blue, green and red trench coats; Alexis Mabille, Christian Siriano – yellow and pink; Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci – terracotta and orange. Escada has not lagged behind and included in its collections lively and dynamic patterns.
