CLAUDE MONTANA TRENCH
Trench Man, made in France in the early 90s, Claude Montana
Color: Khaki green, leather inserts and brown velvet
Material: Cotton, ribbed cotton, lambskin
Hybridization material: handles and industrial bag body
Flexible and architected, this trench was selected for the iconicity of its creator whose distinctive signs are apparent but without exaggeration: shouldered, straight cut, combed cotton, velvet collar very high, closure with bronze color pressures, tightening at the handles in leather, high-relief shoulder design with leather inserts, straight cut, and back flap.
Carrying the characteristics of Claude Montana's style in the 90s, this piece was hybridized through a grava bag used in industry and building to counterbalance the vintage look of epaulets and thus restore a strong appearance. contemporary of the room. The hybridization deals with three complementary points:
- The addition of a removable hood, added with pressure, oversize, to protect the entire face in case of bad weather and not more than half only, as if to go after the gesture of the original room ;
- Internal straps to remove the trench if necessary as its lightness allows and calls; thanks to its lightness, the trench and worn in backpack is no longer felt;
- The leather links of the original handles have been changed thanks to the intervention of scratch bag handle allowing a tightening of the sleeves more modern.
Thanks to these interventions, the trench has changed into an updated piece while retaining its original strengths and its iconicity.
Born from the Palace generation in the early 80's, Claude Montana remains one of the most famous creators of this era, recognized at first glance for the exuberance of its forms and the architectural structure of its creations. Her jackets in particular, with their shoulders exacerbated and their waist tightened, are still iconic in a fashion celebrating a strong, fanciful and ultra-feminine client. Created in the early 90's, this trench has the softer and quieter characteristics, a phenomenon applicable to all fashion for societal reasons.
The Claude Montana trench is a unique and mixed piece, reworked in our workshop in Paris.
