After unveiling its “ReBurberry” edit of sustainable pieces, Burberry has dropped a utilitarian layering piece from its Spring/Summer 2020 runway collection. The reconstructed car coat is made from two-tone cotton twill and boasts a detachable hood. Like other outerwear options from the season, the coat is accented with exposed zipper detailing and velcro-tab cuffs.

A key detail of the car coat are the rib-knit sleeve panels inspired by Victorian corsetry that tighten around the arm and subtly flare at the end. Logo and globe graphic appliqués brand the bulky yet structured garment, while buttons run down the entirety of the front and on top of the back. Varying in texture and tone, the durable car coat can be paired with other SS20 items informed by simple colorways, such as white, black, light blue and the house’s signature camel and ivory colorways.

Take a closer look at the Reconstructed Car Coat above and head to Burberry’s website now to purchase it for $3,450 USD.

For more outerwear, visvim dropped a cozy blanket-like Kieje Haveli coat covered in its “PEERLESS” motif.
