'The Depp' Trenchmono is in one of my favorite colors- army green. The fabric is a crepe rayon and is from the Sage Kimono range. While searching for army green trench coats online- after I had created mine- I saw this photo of the rather sexy perpetual bad boy (I know I have a thing for them) Johnny Depp- and knew this one was going to be a tribute to him in that era. The Depp Trenchmono, as like The Judd, has 2 pockets in the front, a back vent-flap, 3 belt loops in the back as well as a collar and lapel to give it that trench-coat feel. The fabric is doubled- for texture and thickness and drape. Crepe rayon fabric is one of the most beautiful fabrics to drape due to the weight of the fabric. When doubled, it has an even more slinky and heavy feel to it and the way it hangs on the body is so imperial. I am styling it here with a basic low rise straight jean in white and a white boxy t-shirt. For a little more French flair- I added a silk scarf in a vintage 70’s
paisley motif by my friend’s line of scarves, Manner Market. Cowboy style boots are YSL. Keeping the styling basic and monochromatic is always my preference for styling. It's minimal and understated and easy to put together. No need to over think or try too hard. Simplicity is beautiful.
