High Street Vs Designer: Clear trench coats by Topshop and D&G

We’re in two minds about the clear trench coat.

On the one hand, we can see the practicality of such an item. How many times have you planned a great outfit, only to have to cover it up with a coat when it suddenly starts raining, after all? At least if the coat is see-through, you still get to show off your outfit, and that could be a good thing indeed.

On the other hand, there’s something just a little bit “emperor’s new clothes” about the whole idea, and that makes us think that if we did suddenly decide we were in urgent need of transparent outerwear, we probably wouldn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on solving that problem.

For that reason, we think one of these coats qualifies as Daylight Robbery. The other… well, we just wish the other didn’t have such highly visible pockets.

What do you think? Would you buy a see-through coat (or should that be a “shoat”?)? If so, which one would you buy: Dolce & Gabbana’s, or Topshop’s?
