I absolutely adored Burberry Prorsum's Spring collection. Christopher Bailey is proving to be the smart choice to revive the classic brand. So I was excited to see what Fall would look like...
At first I saw: dark and tough, which was a bit frightening. Inspired by the Prorsum knight, I definitely see medieval references. Metallics looked like shimmering armor, reptilian gloves looked downright creepy and the models looked ready for battle. Then, the collection softened, delivering absolutely fabulous outerwear. Mostly belted, there were deconstructed and reconstructed trenches, sporty parkas and stadium jackets. Mini post it pleats and ruffles added a much needed trickle of femme. A couple of surprises were a pretty leafy print and a dusty violet color. Here's a collection based on old ideas that managed to look to the future.
