per una Speziale has given the classic trench a beautiful new-season makeover. It’s the perfect choice for work and weekend, says womenswear editor Charlene Barton
What was once exclusive to menswear has since become a cornerstone of the modern woman’s wardrobe – and this season, the mac is prettier than ever. Designers have embraced their creativity for spring with the likes of Gucci showcasing a luxurious suede version, while denim offered an edge at Dries Van Noten. It’s all about expecting the unexpected, which is where this beautiful design from per una Speziale sits perfectly. Thanks to the soft blush shade, it’s unmistakeably feminine yet maintains all the classic elements that make the trench coat so timeless. Wear it off-duty with pale-wash denim and a simple white tee, switching to slick tailoring and mean-business heels for the office.
