Well, I must admit that I have this thing for the 40s. Girls were so pretty back then. I love the way they have their hair done, their make-up and how they dressed.
Because I am a little nostalgic about this time I bought this trench coat on Saturday.
There are only few symbols of classic elegance as enduring as the trench coat. Movies have played an especially important role in promoting the garment as a symbol of chic to successive generations of style-conscious movie-goers. Whether it is Ingrid Bergman bidding a poignent adieu to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Catherine Deneuve clinging to Nino Casternuovo on the train platform in Les parapluies de Cherbourg or Audrey Hepburn falling into the eager arms of George Peppard in the rain-soaked final scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's, the garment has come to symbolize an elegant way to brave both inhospitable weather and tragic twists of fate.
