Investing in a good winter coat for those darker and colder days is a logical move – but one brand has taken winter dressing to a brand new level.
Despite being known for its timeless trench coat, Burberry has just thrown a new item into the mix, and it’s got people talking.
The winter warmer in question is a half blazer, half puffa coat hybrid.
The red puffa half can be worn over the tailored camel coat as a sort of mullet skirt, or it can be removed and worn as a separate piece.
If that wasn’t enough of a talking point, the unique garment is priced at £2,690.
According to the Harrods website, where the piece is on sale, the wool coat ‘presents a youthful approach to fine Italian tailoring’.
What’s more, it’s also available in a different design – with a tartan wool coat on top and a green puffa underneath.
Naturally the arrival of the versatile coat has prompted lots of discussions online.
On user on Twitter said: ‘Why? Why did someone do this to 2 perfectly good coats?
I wouldn’t pay $37.90 for that coat

While another Tweeted: ‘I wouldn’t pay $37.90 for that coat.’
Another brought up a practical use for the garment: ‘If I hadn’t seen the price, I would 100% assume it’s a coat aimed at teachers who have to do outdoor recess duty in the winter.’
Others had their own theories surrounding the logistics of the coat, with one user saying: ‘It’s just photographed that way so you can see both the puffer vest attachment and the coat underneath. It’s not actually meant to be worn that way.’
Another user asked an important question: ‘Does this mean my 20-year-old Burberry trench is out of style?’
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Burberry to find out the truth about this coat and will update this article if we hear back.
