Traditionally dusters adhered to the 4 Ls

light – weight

light – coloured

long

loose

and when horses were the main means of transport

the duster was worn to safeguard clothing from

the dirt/elements of a day’s ride.

With the later introduction of the open car,

both men and women favoured dusters as practical, protective outerwear.

Today, duster coats  span the  colour spectrum, but the intention

of loose fit, light – weight with length remain constant –

no longer function- wear but fashion – ready.

Cue the modern take on the traditional trench –

not as commissioned army wear but as required wardrobe staple.

The new inspired silhouette is a nod to the duster’s 4 Ls.

Dusters and trenches:  signature pieces for a signature look;

spring into it for 2014.
