Milan Menswear: Burberry Prorsum

Burberry Prorsum, Spring 13

Christopher Bailey always offers enough newness to be fresh and interesting, but always with clear Burberry handwriting. The move on this season was the sweet-wrapper metallics, in shiny blues, limes, fuchsia and orange. These appeared on collars or covered shirts, cardigans, jackets and trousers. There were also prints inspired by the early 20th-century Bloomsbury Group of artists. Trademark outerwear came as drop-shouldered bulky bombers, alongside oversized parkas, multi-pocket safari jackets and boxy overcoats.

In short Slim suits and interesting outerwear wrapped up in metallic foils. The bomber is sure to be a winner but high-shine metallics might be a tough sell.
