Long-sleeved trench coat, top and leggings by

The Design Idea
With the title “Lost in reflections”, Mustafa has created a checked trench coat with a reversible metallic lining and a matching top and leggings. Thanks to its great versatility, what looks at first glance to be a classic coat suddenly becomes something completely different.
With the coat’s metallic, futuristic lining, Mustafa seeks to encourage our society to reflect more on itself, be more open to new things and therefore to evolve.
The statement of our judges
Mustafa has succeeded in giving his trench coat, essentially a very simple design, wild wow factor. The match between the woolly checks and the futuristic metallic foil is exciting, and the reversibility creates two very different design expressions.
Mustafa has successfully achieved his goal, which is to create a simple, easy-tosew jacket that is truly one of a kind. We love the styling of the jacket, in which the contemporary one-piece look with the top and leggings in a bright shade of blue creates a stunning expression.
