Trench coat is an iconic item that has been a significant part of the popular culture. It was invented by Thomas Burberry in 1850 for the British army and, over the years, its design was modified until becoming the current known version: fashionable for both men and women. Firstly created for army officers it influenced fashion becoming one of the must have items of every woman. Worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, by Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca and by many characters in an endless range of movies, since many years, trench coat has been considered a distinctive item that will be always in vogue.

Nowadays, wearing a trench coat is a perfect solution in every occasion, from elegant to casual. The beige version is definitely the traditional one, but different colours can add an original touch to your outfit.

Such was its popularity that many fashion houses reinvented it in various options. Here are some examples from S/S 2010 collections.
