Très Chic Trench

by The Zoe Report

One peek through our archives and it is evident that we are far from shy in our affections for Derek Lam. The American fashion designer keeps us wanting more with his namesake line, surprise mash-ups—his capsule collection for eBay was a total hit!—and latest endeavor, a diffusion label entitled 10 Crosby. After studying the twelve modern looks in Lam’s debut resort collection, we decided on today’s Contrast Trench as a fresh front runner.

In terms of outerwear, we have very strong feelings about the trench coat: if you don’t have one in your closet, get one! 10 Crosby’s interpretation brings a contemporary spin to the timeless silhouette with opposing jet-on-hemp coloring, raffia fabric and, of course, impeccable tailoring. Though technically a resort piece, this dapper coat will segue all seasons with ease. Need to look major in a pinch? Throw it on over your best LBD, slip on a pair of platform suede booties and head out the door—très trench chic!
