The Trenchmono is the lovechild of a Kimono and the classic Trenchcoat. I am playfully introducing two Trenchmonos, the Judd and the Depp. Judd Nelson’s character as ‘The Rebel’ badboy in the cult iconic 80’s movie ‘The Breakfast Club’ was the fundamental inspiration for this new style.
Forever obsessed with the minimalism and masculinity of the classic Trench coat. It is pure elegance and unisex style at it’s best. This style transcends seasons, reasons, genders and eras. The trench coat was initially developed by one the British rivaling fashion houses Burberry or Aquascutum (whom both claim they designed it first). Military officers purchased this piece as a stylish element of distinction (and rank) as this admired utilitarian coat was indeed fit to be drugged through the trenches, hence the namesake. Fast forward through a century and change and you will note that icons of style have well adapted this piece into their wardrobe.

I never follow trends. I look at them the same way I view astrology- I create blindly then go back and see what others are doing and how it is or isn't in synch with my flow. I never like to be influenced by trends before I create something new. I create.
