Pin the likeness of a trench coat to a mood board and chances are pretty good the distinctive article of outerwear admired for its imperviousness to the elements is Burberry. The British luxury fashion house all but made its name on the trench coat. The appointment of Riccardo Tisci as Burberry’s chief creative has ushered forth inevitable changes at the house, but the trench coat has endured as an icon. The latest issue of WSJ. Magazine features a story starring Selena Forrest that celebrates the trench coat and, guess what, it is not about to fade into obscurity. Photographed by Bibi Cornejo Borthwick and styled by Beat Bolliger, the story is a refreshing take on a classic. Oh, and Burberry plays a role in this story, just look at the way Selena (pictured) wears the brand’s coat, shirt, trouser, scarf, and earring. Effortlessly! One could only imagine what its designer had mind for the best application for the clothes, but it would be difficult at this point to picture anyone but Selena wearing this look pinned to a mood board free associating on trench coats for the coming season.
