Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011

 A scrumptious affair between mellow navy and dusty brown was peppered masterfully with orange and yellow zest. Clearly inspired by the dramatic, record breaking weather that Britain has been enduring, Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 collection was all about warmth - in colour and material.

With just the right infusion of citrus brights added to the darker more Winter-associated tones, the collection was smart, with smooth gentlemen-like tailoring for both men and women, Bailey also added sexy leather tight-high boots and floaty mid-length printed dresses for femininity through the offering for the ladies.

Leather waist cinching belts were added to bellowing knee-length coats (multi-textured with furs and sequins). As per usual, Bailey added embellished and fur laden shoulders to the classic Burberry trench, while puffa coats were also utilized to add to the dramatic warming effect, including a lemon gilet for the men, and a long A-line coat for the women in a dark navy.

The collection used tweed and checks to evoke a sort of countryman gent in some of the looks, but this was made effervescently cool with floppy hair, striking colour combos and streamline contemporary tailoring.

This was the autumnal apple that provided us with a sweet taste of the full collection that Bailey is sure to produce when the Fall/Winter 2011 collections roll around, and an easy-to-wear vibe dominated throughout, wholly about function and care-free tailoring - Bailey modernized British classics flawlessly, fusing contemporary fashion design with an off-beat cool-kid swiftness.
