Four trechcoats for fall and beyond

You know it’s not winter, if you can still wear a trenchcoat in November . So why not pretend it’s Indian summer, there are still plenty of orange and yellow leaves in the trees. So long as you block out the fairy lights that are starting to light up the afternoons in pre-christmas spirit it’s all good.

Zara’s more sustainable offering

I have a thing for ankle-length coats and was psyched to see that Zara’s sustainable collection “Join Life” features one – it’s a great length but quite big if you have a petit frame like me (see above). It is made of 56% Tencel, a fabric made from wood cellulose sourced from certified socially and environmentally responsible forests. Zara has been adding sustainable offerings ever since November 2015 but has launched its first capsule collection early this fall with an accompanying campaign starring model Sasha Pivovarova. Even though this capsule collection is only a drop in the bucket, it’s good to see the Inditex company make an effort towards a more transparent, ethical production.

When I continued to look for alternate styles I found these three trenchcoats by Filippa K, vintage Acne Studios and A.P.C. You might have guessed that I like the French brand quite a bit, but am not yet adding them to our selection of brands as they don’t offer miuch of an insight into their production. So it’s on you decide whether you fall for the almost immacualte, classical cut of above trench on the left, or not. Filippa K’s “Kruby” has the quirkiest name but gets 100 in terms of style and sustainability. Definitley my favorite. What’s yours?
