I don't normally post twice in one day. But this is definitely deserving.
Throughout every season, there are certain investment pieces that carry over from collection to collection. The perfect white shirt. Classic black heels. Incredible denim. That navy blue puffer vest. A cashmere sweater and scarf. Lambskin leather gloves. And a trench coat.
I used to be obsessed with traditional Macintosh coats and Burberry's famously check lined trench coats. Until now.
Martin + Osa just released their Fall 2009 trench coat. And I must. Have. Now. The details are amazing. Classic inspiration with a twist - the double breasted coat is slim fit, providing the perfect silhouette for all seasons. The notched lapel, storm guard under collar, and adjustable buttoned cuffs actually provide real protection from harsh elements, while the vented back prevents any unnecessary perspiration and stuffiness.
Incredibly durable, yet still breathable cotton/nylon blend expertly repels rain while providing the perfect protection - and you'll look great, too! I love the removable belt - looks great belted in rain or snow storms, but also provides a bit of J'Ne se qua when left undone.
Paired with everything - denim and a vneck, or as a top coat over a suit, this coat is a must have addition to your wardrobe. You'll wear it for years to come.
Martin + Osa's Double-Breasted Trench Coat
Available in Dune Khaki or Seagram Black. And quite honestly - at this price, with this quality and design, I'd buy one of each colour!
PS - loving the women's version, too.
