Once is an instance, twice is a hobby.
The serene Côte d’Azur may call for a balmy wardrobe filled with glamorous ensembles fit for the red-carpeted Croisette of Cannes, but for supermodel, Kaia Gerber, the azure coast is merely another opportunity to show off her off-duty wardrobe staple, Bec + Bridge’s tailored Natice trench coat.
Internationally coveted Australian label Bec + Bridge has been the go-to for It girls for over 20 years, but with Gerber repeatedly donning the oversized ‘quiet luxury’ essential, she’s not only proving that this piece is the perfect transitional piece but why the elevated contemporary label will continually be the sought-after sartorial mainstay du jour.
Earlier this week, 21-year-old Gerber was spotted at the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport sporting the sleek, sand-coloured trench over a relaxed, lightweight button-down top and slouchy grey tracksuit pants.
She accessorised the minimally neutral ensemble with her enviable Celine Triomphe sunglasses and matelassé monochrome bag—a style debuted in the maison’s FW/22 collection, which Gerber, of course, walked in.
Gerber reprising this military-esque silhouette comes after she first debuted her tried-and-tested off-duty silhouette in New York. Similar to her second outing, she left the trench open, rather than buttoning up the double-breasted style. Both times she completed her look with a pair of black Adidas sambas, proving a hot samba summer has only just begun.
With Gerber never being one to shy away from flexing her street style prowess, it’s clear that this cotton-twill number is a surefire way to add a touch of understated sophistication to any silhouette.
Because with the ‘model off-duty street style’ becoming its own entity and aesthetic, a piece getting this much airtime is indeed the best type of endorsement to receive.
Thankfully, for our Australian readers, emulating Gerber’s inimitable style is as simple as popping into your nearest boutique to pick up this hard-working trench for yourself.
As Gerber proved, what better way to blend in than with Bec + Bridge? Especially in a trans-continental piece suitable for the jet-set taking serving for both Nice and New York.
