Trench Inspiration

- Burberry perfume 2006 ad campaign -

My infatuation with the trench coat began way back in 2006 after I caught a glimpse of this Burberry campaign featuring Rachel Weisz. Focusing the story on an idealistic London love affair, it appeared the brand was attempting to once again reclaim the item as an ultimate British original. In the years since, Christopher Bailey has been continuing to reinvent it, the two previous collections for Spring/Summer focusing on the item as a chief element of every woman's wardrobe. Although, perhaps these images are now out of date, I feel they are just as inspiring as they were then and encourage me to continue my search for the perfect trench coat, a key staple in every wardrobe.

How do I not have a tan trench? I'm embarassed. My only trench is black. I need to change this ASAP. I'm just wishing I could afford one of these burberry versions.

I'd been searching for the "right" trench coats for about 2 years when I finally stumbled on one by Brooks Brothers that I love, but if my budget allowed it ... I would've blown it all on a Burberry one.
