Burberry Prorsum

Autumn 12

It will come as no surprise that Burberry Prorsum hit the nail on the head for outerwear, from the Burberry mac, which was updated with solid blocks of colour, to the db tweed overcoat and cropped quilted hunting jacket. Each was distinct enough to give the Burberry man a reason to update that staple autumn item. A highlight was the updated duffle coat in a mottled mole brown with metal and leather fastenings. Along with Burberry’s brooding ‘Britishness’ there was a European element to the show, with oversized quilted jackets reminiscent of Italian skiwear. Burberry’s block colour trend was continued in navy, mustard and aubergine. Suit silhouettes were slim, verging on a mod look, confirming the 1960s as a major trend in formalwear for autumn 12. Velvet emerged as a key fabric update – it was also seen at Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci.
