Trench coats have been reinvented and are back on the scene. A well fitted trench coat can be an extremely chic addition to your wardrobe. They also offer you amazing diversity - alluring and sultry one day, professional city girl the next.Men can also pull off the the professional city look too. Also the mysterious gorgeous detective look or Inspector Gadget ( I was really into Matthew Broderick as Inspector Gadget).
I personally would go for a vintage style Trench Coat and add a few personal touches. This serves the purposes of being more unique and suits my pocket too!

Love, love trench coats! I am absolutely in love with that Red Valentine coat with the ruffle... But to me, nothing can quite beat the classic Burberry trench.

I love the D&G trenchcoat. Hey Style Mansion, do you have any favorite menswear designers who design more masculine/sleek clothing?

Chrissystina said...

(I need that entire style of the A.P.C coat and outfit. Trench coats add instant class, I LOVE them all, especially that royal blue Anna Sui, hmmm hmmmm)

I actually did have a great weekend, thank you! I'm so glad you got my email. I hope you two can get in touch soon.

Girl, I wish I had my own natural hair care line. It would be obnoxiously brilliant:-D

This year may be the year it happens. When it does, I GOT you! I'm way into making my own products, what products do you use?

Oh my they are all so great!

Hi Afrika,
I love the British Menswear designer Ozwald Boateng. He has a shop in the highly exclusive Saville Row. He combines vibrant colour with sleek,sharp and meticulous tailoring. I actually saw him once, whilst visiting a book shop. He was wearing one of his own creations and the cut was immaculate.
Independent Menswear designer Erik Honesty( from Philadelphia) creates some cool retro designs
for men.
There are loads,I will do a more detailed post for ya!

Afrika said...

Thanks Style Mansion. Looking forward to the post. In the meantime, I will definitely check out Oswald and Erik. Thanks again :)

Ciao my friend! I adore trench coats, and I think they are great because you can wear them almost year round! It seems they can fit from Fall-Spring depending on style and colour. I love the ones you have chosen here, especially the vintage ones! You clearly have amazing taste in style...

Once again your recent comments have completely brightened my days, thank you so much! :)

Nina said...

I don't know why, but I just love the one by Paul Smith!

I absolutely love that Burberry Leather coat. Beautiful picks!

A Whimsical Girl Named Debbie said...

That blue ruffles trench is a dream! I'm also smitten with the Burberry leather trench! Okay, which one shall I buy?! {Yeah Right!} I can't wait for when I can walk out the door with just a trench on {clothes underneath, of course!}. Soon! Soon! Have a whimsical day, my dear!

No other label does trench coats better than Burberry. Hands down the best. Their camel-colored leather trench is divine.

Lovely blog, BTW.

Kristin said...

OMG...That leather Burberry beauty is AMAZING!

Blondie said...

That blue Anna Sui is my favorite by far! I love it! So chic! Kori xoxo

Pia said...

i am yearning for the day to own a burberry trench!

Join the Gossip said...

Love them all, but ADORE the Camila and Marc one. Beautiful is an understatement!

Graham I. Haynes said...

Great work pulling all these diverse trench coat designs together. I liked seeing men's and women's design side-by-side. Funny thing, I bought a black trench coat today. It was a bit shorter than the D&G one you have pictured... I wonder if I should reconsider!

Sadako said...

Love these all! So classy. I'm glad trench coats are in. Love the buttons.
