For Muslim women in Turkey, the adoption of the trench coat as an element of modest fashion dates to the 1970s when the garment became a marker of the wearer’s modernity and urbanity. Here, Kuaybe Gider has reinterpreted the style by fashioning it from a soft, fluid fabric that gives a relaxed silhouette.
