    Nothing better than a great trench. I love the way both of these woman styled them, with a few burst of color and some killer shoes. And the way you shot them both from behind is sublime!

    They're both texting. Looking gorgeous though! When I was in London I picked up a vintage Burberry trench. The woman selling it to me said "Ohh, you look better than Kate Moss." So I bought it. Smart lady! haha…

    The first is so classic, and the second can almost double as a dress or shirtdress.

    I've never been fond of trenches, they just seem to remind me too much of 60's Italian cloak & dagger movies or segments of Natasha from Rocky & Bullwinkle. I think it depends on where you live, city or country.

    Both Ladies are quite beautiful. Its funny, almost everything about both pictures are Identical, coat, dress, hair, what their doing.. very cool.

    the second is the smartest look i've seen in ages. that high seam in the back, the heels, her bangles, her hair.

    your photographs are simply brilliant.

    amazing – but I am curious – live in London and almost never see anyone round about now with bare legs like this at this time of year – though of course we all should cos it really makes the trench!

  56. 82Brute

    October 29, 2010 at 11:50 am

    Love the badass boots in the first look and the color on the turned up sleeve. In the second? Everything. From slightly demure upswept hair to the perfect shade of red on the dress showing beneath the coat to the touch of red toenail polish peeking out from her incredible shoes, this whole outfit is a knock out.

    - The beautiful light and the shiny textures in the second photo! Also, the colors: Concrete trench, rich red skirt – repeated in the nail color – and those elegant, but relaxed, shoes!

    (Am trying to go past the crushing on the first)…and have to say love the mauve and teal with the trench neutral.

    And the navy and cherry red with the taupe of the 2nd coat is just perfect.

    What I find fascinating about these two coats is that they both go by the same name. The top one is very much a traditional trench coat, but the second shows how far it's possible, over time, to push all the boundaries and still be seen to fit them. It is grey, rather than beige, has no belt or (as far as I can see) epaulettes, the waist is high and slightly smocked, even the fabric seems to be different. Yet it is still a Trench: brilliant. It's also gorgeous.

    I like the second photo for several reasons, mostly because of the red peaking out from under the "different" looking trench, and the purse too! But also, she is taking care of her trench. I understand that trench coats can be a more "knock around" type outer garment, but I don't think we should let them start to get the unkept look. Especially when we are dressed to the nines underneath.

    Does anyone know what type of shoes these are and where I can buy online or in Melbourne?

    I love trenches – so very early
    60s and Rocky and Bullwinkle – Natasha really rocked it. I love the way the lilac lining sets off the light tan of the boots.

    I love the second one. There's something about looking at outfits from the back that make them look more elegant!
