You could say Cyndi Chan’s trench is going to the dogs, but that’s just because she made a pint-sized one for a pooch for her recent runway show. However, it’s also going to Oprah!
True Story: One of our fashion editors, Jacqui emailed me before the Green Tie Ball a month ago, a creative black tie event that we were about to cover for Second City Style.
By the way, how dressed up are you getting?
I was thinking I may wear a black satin Cyndi Chan trench with pants or a skirt.
Haha! I was thinking of wearing my black satin Cyndi trench! I’m glad I asked! (Don’t worry, I won’t wear it now).
I didn’t know you had one, too! Great minds think alike …Although I have the short one. And you?
I’ve got the short one too. Clearly, the SCS staff has excellent taste.
So now I think that everybody needs a Cyndi Chan trench! A few years ago Cyndi Chan designed a long satin trench coat and it soon became her signature piece.
Then last spring she introduced the short version. Just like the long trench, it has a flattering wide sash that you can tie in a bow or just sash…and it has pintuck detail on the back. It’s flattering, it’s easy, it’s marvelous. You’ll feel like a movie star! In black, silver, gold or red… the reason this coat is so fabulous is because you can wear it to a black tie event, over a dress, skirt, pants..or just throw it on with jeans and a t-shirt and look amazing -instantly! Long or short it works either way. A virtual no-brainer! The timeless trench is somewhat vintage, but still very modern.
Next stop…the trench will be appearing on Oprah! Scheduled for this Tuesday, October 23rd.
Available at Second City Store
