You can now shop the trench coat that every fashion insider went wild for at London Fashion Week

In February the entire fashion industry fell in love with a JW Anderson checked trench coat, and finally it’s ready for purchase. 

There was a moment during London Fashion Week when we saw every editor’s eye’s flash with a look of desire . Said look was very quickly followed by the raising of phone cameras and the gasping of breath as JW Anderson sent a checked trench coat of outerwear perfection transfixed the onto his catwalk.

The trench was all that anyone could talk about after the show (the Stylist fashion team included): the puff sleeve, the exaggerated proportions, the lapels (THE LAPELS!), the laissez-faire attitude of the model who grazed around the ply-carpeted room that made us all believe this trench coat had the power to change lives. (Ok, maybe not lives but certainly wardrobes).

Everyone who witnessed such sartorial wonder then uploaded an image (of varying degrees of blur) onto their social media. The response was probably similar to what was happening on our Instagram: receiving a tonne of love heart emojis.

But that was in February, when our bones were considerably more chilled, and outwear was the one part of our wardrobe we were the most excited to wear.

Then the summer hit and, in a very un-British move, it actually served up some decent spells of sunshine and as such our outwear dreams were put on hold. Moved out of direct vision, we gave in to cotton smock dresses and woven bags, all whilst the JW Anderson trench hung in the background waiting its turn to rear its beautiful head again.

Well, that time is now. As temperatures start to decline, the designer autumn winter collections begin to drop and the trench, that trench, is now available to buy.

So how much will this set you back? Well, like most good things the trench coat of dreams comes with a big ticket price tag. Rolling in at £1,350 this is truly an investment piece, but if you think about it in terms of cost per wear, and if you refuse to take it off until 2020, you’re in for a treat.

We’ll be wearing ours with light-wash denim jeans and box cut white t-shirts for now, and with slouchy dresses and even slouchier roll neck jumpers when autumn really takes a turn.
