Many luxury brands are able to take an everyday item and turn it into a piece of haute couture (slapping on a $1,000 price tag in the process). Few labels do it quite as well as Maison Margiela, though. From PVC tote bags to sneakers covered in glue and quasi, barely-existent sweaters, the French luxury brand revels in polarizing the fashion masses.
And in the nick of time for your Fall outerwear, Margiela has come through with some elevated trench coats we're sure will make you double take. Coming in an outlandish fully transparent design that optimizes exposure to a fire ’fit underneath without even having to take your coat off, Margiela has blended a futuristic aesthetic with classic design — a double-breasted front, notched lapels, belted cuffs, and matching belt — for a real head turner.
And if you're not on board the see-through bandwagon, lower-key but no less impressive offerings come from the fashion house's brown wool trench, as well as two black and beige options. If you're really feeling like flexing, you could even rock the transparent trench over a brown one.
In pure Margiela style, the high fashion pieces come with a price tag in the thousands, but that's the price you gotta pay to have Kanye's iconic jacket query — "What's that jacket, Margiela?" — coming your way on the daily.
Take a look at all the fire Margiela coats below, and click away for an investment piece that's worth every dollar.
