Real vs. Steal – Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 Knotted Epaulette Trench Coat

by Celine on February 26, 2010

A trench coat is one of those items of clothing that every woman should have in her closet. Various permutations appear on the fashion scene each season and it just never seems to go out of style. I think Burberry Prorsum put out one of the best trenches of the season in their Spring 2010 show. The coat is undeniably sweet with those draped/knotted shoulders and girly color (they call it “Frosted Pink”), but the black lacquered buttons keep it a little bit edgy. Sadly, at $2,595, I think we can safely say I’ll never own this coat.

I have to tell you, I’m sort-of OK with not owning the Burberry trench above if it means that I can nab this Lipsy knock-off which is available at ASOS. Literally thousands of dollars cheaper but with that same lovely charm, this coat is sure to win you tons of compliments. Lipsy really nailed those knotted shoulders and I think I may actually like their pinkish/peach color just a smidge more than Burberry’s cupcake-pink. I picture this being worn with a fluttery, chiffon mini skirt and black leather rocker heels.

    Do you know if there are anymore coats like this one? Asos seems to be sold out.

  • Hi Leslie,

    ASOS has another trench that is heavily inspired by Burberry S/S 2010. It’s lilac and can be found here: ASOS Twisted Skirt Mac. Hope we could help! 🙂
