LFW: Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2011

Model and actress Jean Shrimpton, who shot to fame in the 1960’s inspired Christopher Bailey’s 60’s influenced Autumn/Winter 2011 collection for Burberry Prorsum. Gone were the biker studded jackets of Spring/Summer, and those shearling aviator jackets from the season before, and in their stead was something different. With bold 60’s inspired primary colours in blue, orange, red and green, bubble-hemmed jackets with bellow sleeves were topped off with a cow-pattern beret. 

Bellowing silhouettes were quickly replaced with some svelte trench coats with an orange lining as well as a few belted fur coats. Fur ran down the shoulders of one sleek belted trench, creating a powerful bold shoulder without dismissing the elegance of an hourglass silhouette. 

As per usual, Bailey did everything in his power to spin the classic aesthetics and military cuts we all associate with Burberry in to something original - he is leading one of the world’s most innovative businesses and it is all because he understands what is required of him and has true passion to make his designs fit with what represents Burberry as a whole.
