My vintage finds: One and only, Burberry

Originally men’s size 48, this trench was just a bit too old to up for sale. A true classic, in honey beige color, with relaxed fit, belt missing and some signs of wear here and there, it was still pretty even though a little tired. After a few months spent hanging in the closet with other vintage treasures on hold, it was time to take it out, rub the dust off and make it shine again. Off to the tailor, new shape to the shouders. new smaller size. Once home, it got a new belt which instantly made it look on point and yes, not so vintage any more – a colorful silk logo scarf Chanel. It didn’t only gave that pop of color that every beige coat needs, but also spoke directly to the current logomania trend.
A red-hot trend piece in an unexpected way, season after season, and not only a true classic weather piece, that’s what the Burberry trench is now thanks to Christopher Bailey, who was the mastermind behind the brand for 17 years now. So many colorful catwalks under the Burberry rain in Hyde Park over the years and my new old trench coat with the iconic check inside make me really sad about the news of Bailey leaving Burberry. Because making an old and very familiar piece exciting and desirable again is not an easy task but one that Bailey achieved brilliantly over the years.
