De­sign­ers are bring­ing a soft touch to the util­i­tar­ian trench coat this sea­son, reimag­in­ing the quin­tes­sen­tial style in leather. ‘it is fas­ci­nat­ing to work with clas­sic shapes and see how you can de­velop them with­out los­ing their essence,’ says Copen­hagen-based de­signer Freya Dal­sjø. her trench coat has a dou­ble layer with a python-skin collar peek­ing from a folded off-theshoul­der sleeve. ‘the de­tail­ing high­lights the in­ner jacket,’ she says. ‘it looks like two jack­ets in one.’ ital­ian leather house tod’s, mean­while, has brought biker jacket de­tails to its khaki trench coat. Valentino’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion comes in sug­ary-pink lac­quered leather, while bot­tega Veneta has added a shinier top coat, reimag­in­ing the trench coat sil­hou­ette in glossy patent leather.
