Splurge: Erykah Badu’s Hammersmith Apollo Concert Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Cape Style Trench Coat

We all know Erykah Badu lives for eccentric fashion both on and offstage. While in London performing at the Hammersmith Apollo, Ms. Badu wore a suede fedora, orange pants, sky-high platform boots, and a $1,905 Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Cape Style Trench Coat:

Her sold-out beige cotton jacket is straight from the Spring 2012 runway and is a chic spin on the classic trench coat with cape styling.

Check it out on the runway.

You can get a similar look for less with the $85 Rugby Biretta Woven Trench Cape.

It’s a hot piece! I live for anything by Junya Watanabe and this design definitely falls in line with Erykah’s quirky style. Not sure how she made it through her set without melting, but I’ve suspected that she has had magical powers for awhile now.
