Burberry Prorsum W Fall 2011
The collection, for next autumn/winter, was a masterclass in keeping out the cold in style. Coats came in bold primary shades of orange, scarlet, purple, and blue, together with olive, and classic black, white and monochrome cashmere and wool, bold, plaids and autumnal tweeds, and in every kind of fur and hide from fox and fake to sheepskin. Most were worn with exaggerated flared trousers which grazed the floor, or skinny legging which revealed the clumpy, rubber-soled, buckled shoes.
The coats were detailed with epaulettes, military buttons, kimono sleeves, half-belts across the lower spine, gathered skirts, dropped waists and leather strap fastenings across the bust and almost all came with matching handbags and cute, fluffy "flat caps".
Here are my favourite ones:
