Burberry Prorsum’s studded trench jacket

Even the classic trench coat can’t escape the shower of spikes that’s been raining down fashion items everywhere for the past few seasons:

We doubt you’ll get many hugs when you’re wearing this.

As well as the spikes, this jacket has been fashioned-up with thick leather cuffs and a belt. It’s a world away from the trench coats our grannies used to wear, that’s for sure, but what do you think about it? Much-needed revamp of an old classic, or a great way to create a lot of fuss on the way through airport security?

    I’m not really a fan of the spikes, but I love the leather!

    I think I would’ve liked it better in studs, not spikes, with the spikes it looks kind of hairy…

    I actually love it. But I’m young and I think I can get away with stuff like that. I’d pair it with a black pant and booties and feel like a rock star

    Imagine carrying all this extra weight on your shoulders. It certainly looks heavy and dangerous. On the other hand, it will help create a much needed personal space around you on public transport during peak hours. Also, a zip would probably work better with the spikes and leather than the buttons.

    I think it’d look better in black.

    It’s a teenage girl dad’s dream come true! Make sure those punks stay at least 20 cm away from my daughter :))

    It’s not heavy the studs are plastic, they were originally metal in the first prototype but it was way too heavy, so they were replaced.
