The word 'trench coat' penetrated in our vocabulary and our closets long time ago (exactly from 1901), but only few days ago I was curios enough to discover it's history. This 'ditch coat' was created by  Thomas Burberry, the inventor of gabardine fabric, submitted a design for an Army officer's raincoat to the United Kingdom War Office. The trench coat became an optional item of dress in the British Army, and was obtained by private purchase by officers and Warrant Officers Class I who were under no obligation to own them. No other ranks were permitted to wear them. It was originally made of waterproof heavy-duty cotton gabardine drill, has a removable insulated lining, raglan sleeves, shoulder boards and cut on the back. After the World War was over a lot of veterans continue to wear their coats in civil life and it rapidly became popular among fashionistas and ordinary people. I could name cult movies 'Casablanca', 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', 'Columbo', 'Agatha Christie's Poirot', where the main heroes wore this famous Burberry coat,  which still maintain 'must-have' label in every fashionista's closet.

This pagoda umbrella bothered my imagination for 2 long years, it popped up and disappeared in internet so quickly, that I didn't have a chance to grab it. But after I did, 2 more weeks needed to take it for a walk under the first autumn rain together with emerald green outfit

+9 от Гринвича: зонт-пагода

Cловосочетание 'Trench coat', которым мы теперь называем этот плащ, уже давно и прочно обосновалось в нашем лексиконе и гардеробе (точнее, с 1901 года), но лишь недавно я не поленилась и изучила историю его появления. Дословно trench coat переводится как "траншейное пальто", и в этом нет ничего необычного, ведь его создателем по праву считается Томас Бёрберри - хозяин габардиновой фабрики и поставщик обмундирования для Британской Армии. Эти плащи из непромокаемого материала шились для военного состава и в обязательном порядке имели широкие лацканы, погоны, высокий воротник и разрез сзади. Многие ветераны продолжали носить тренчкоты и после войны, и как следовало ожидать, плащ становился всё более популярным среди мирного населения и модников. Стоит лишь упомянуть такие культовые фильмы, как "Завтрак у Тиффани", "Пуаро Агаты Кристи", "Касабланка", "Коломбо", где главные герои появлялись в кадре в знаменитом пальто Burberry, которое до сих пор является must-have каждой модницы. 


А вот за этим зонтом-пагодой я гонялась добрых 2 года, постоянно отслеживая в интернете, как он появлялся и тут же исчезал из продажи, а потом еще 2 недели ждала первого осеннего дождя, чтобы наконец выгулять сие чудо, которое замечательно дополнило мой осенний образ в изумрудно-зеленых тонах.
