In 1995, Veronique Branquinho graduated from the fashion department of the Antwerp Royal Academy and just two years later she presented her first collection, at 24 years old, in Paris. Just one year later she received the prestigious VH1 Fashion Award as ‘Best new comer in Fashion’. She continued to make solely womenswear until 2003 when she presented her 2003-2004 Menswear collection, in the construction of her silhouettes Branquinho enjoyed playing with a mixture of elements from male and female wardrobes, both in terms of tailoring and in terms of material.
This trench coat from her second mens collection features a washed out cotton drill fabric, seen across a wide array of garments in the collection. A distinctive slim fit with pronounced shoulders known in Veronique’s work throughout her menswear. Further details include epaulets on the shoulders, adjustable wrist belt, waist belt and a double pointed panel on the back.
