A good trench coat is a staple of any capsule wardrobe – especially when you’re at the mercy of the great British weather. But few designs have proved quite as popular as the Sézane trench coat that’s just been restocked.
Dubbed ‘the trench that broke the internet’, the sellout camel-coloured Scott Trench racked up an impressive waiting list of 10,000 fans wanting to be notified of its return, and today’s finally the day, as it’s available once again on the cult fashion brand’s website.
Sézane has always been a favourite amongst the Parisian style set, with customers regularly queueing down the street to get inside its boutiques, and in 2018, a bricks-and-mortar shop came to the UK in London’s Westbourne Grove.
The presence of the line has also been bolstered recently as Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing its £90 Tulio jumper during a recent public engagement, firmly cementing its place as a mid-priced brand to know.
The Scott Trench, which initially dropped last August and disappeared in a matter of days, effortlessly embodies all of the sensibilities that Sézane’s reputation has been built on. The clean lines, classic tailoring and subtle statement details (the large lapel collar, the button-belted sleeves) make it a piece that you’ll treasure season after season.
It comes in sizes 6-18, and is priced at £215 – admittedly expensive compared to most high street brands, but a fraction of the cost of designer equivalents. And it’s this precise centre-of-the-market style that Sézane does so well – the focus is on quality and simplicity, to ensure that your investment will never go out of style.
However, if you’re desperate to own a slice of Sézane but the coat falls outside of your current budget, all is not lost; check out the recently launched and equally gorgeous Sézane jewellery line, which starts from just £30.
