Pioneering ethical fashion label Stella McCartney advocated for the leather-look trench showcasing a mushroom grey version alongside pops of teal and baby blue, as did Helsa – a new clothing line created by Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk – which debuted a beige belted version in its first drop a couple of days ago.

Giambattista Valli, on the other hand, focused on the classic double-breasted style, displaying a dove grey leopard print version as well as an enduring rich burgundy which felt as though it could transcend through the ages.
