|Trench Coat - Burberry|
A slightly different outfit post for you all today. This is actually a throwback post, as these pictures were taken exactly this time last year, November 2013. You might be wondering why I was jumping around my local park, posing in a Burberry trench coat and tartan umbrella? It's random I know, but I was actually working on a project for my final university year, where we were required to create an image incorporating the classic trench.
Although I never ended up using these images for the final project, these were essentially behind the scenes pictures and it would be a shame not to share them with you all. I had completely forgotten about them, and it wasn't until I was clearing my computer one night that I rediscovered them. I find it rather fitting to share them with you all now, considering these photos were taken exactly a year ago (I haven't changed much!) and also more significantly, that we've just passed the 100th year mark of the First World War.
In the midst of war in 1914, British soldiers were kitted out in Burberry's resilient rain coats to protect them against the weather whilst positioned in the muddy trenches (hence the name). Initially perceived as an item associated with war, we are now incredibly fortunate to view a Burberry Trench as a luxurious designer piece, and one which I was very happy to pose in.
