Burberry Prorsum Women’s Fall 2012
London’s biggest show of the week, Burberry Prorsum was far from a disappointment. The season was truly in full, hurricane level force at Prorsum, with thick tweed and wool dominating the runway for both men and women, and the color palette predominantly autumnal. The clear color focus was the varying shades of grey, but shades such as oxblood, navy, olive, off-white, yellow ochre, tan and forest green were intermixed to give the collection a depth that could be met by no other. The kitsch highlight was the owl printed garments, which have already proved popular amongst the style set on Twitter, as well as the season’s trench, which was blindsided by tweed on each side of the coat. The collections aura exuded a sophisticated youth with a twinge of London’s infamous edge. The silhouettes were significantly military inspired, and the woman walking down the runway wouldn’t look out of place in a style war – in fact, she would dominate and conquer. The epitome of the mind’s eye for an autumn/winter collection, Christopher Bailey has truly kept Burberry Prorsum at the top of the fashion pyramid in London, like many of his contemporaries.
