The trench coat is one of the most iconic pieces of clothing that you can add to your wardrobe. Historically, the trench was designed as an overcoat for British Army officers during the First World War, but throughout the decades it’s design, fabric and fit has been updated from a purely utilitarian rain protection garment to a versatile fashion coat fit for royalty, models and for us, mere mortals!
The new Luxe Suede Trench re-imagines the original iconic design details and updates them for today’s woman. Let’s face it, you’re busy juggling your time and roles, so your clothes need to be versatile, easy-to-care-for and looking fabulous at all times. No small feat of course but we were up for the challenge and went to work developing a new fabric and streamlining the design.
Hence, the Luxe Suede Trench was born.
As a premium engineered fabric, Luxe Suede has a soft brushed finish that looks like suede on the outside, but on the inside, it’s a Luxe Ponte Knit. This vegan-friendly fabric has the luxuriously soft texture of suede and the comfort of a 4-way stretch fabric that moves with you and drapes beautifully. So, it’s a win-win-win for fabric, comfort and design. Luxe Suede is not waterproof like suede from an animal, but one of the main benefits is that it’s machine washable and is designed to be worn outside as an overcoat or inside as a blazer/coat. Simply layer it over a tank, a fine knit sweater or even a chunky sweater.
