A Burberry show is always about the outwear first. This season, the coats were incredibly beautiful, done in fabrics like herringbone tweed, plaid wool cashmere, down filled silk, and in silhouettes ranging from cropped aviators and to iridescent skirted puffers. Many of the coats had peplums, big utility pockets, or both, a theme that was carried through on pencil skirts. Other must-haves from the clothing side of the equation include so-adorable-I-want-them-all sweaters with whimsical animal motifs including owls, puppies, and songbirds, and pencil skirts with a cascading ruffle down the front.
A Burberry show is also about the accessories. Oh, the accessories. Every bag carried down the runway was lust worthy, the studded gloves on the hands holding them equally so. The studded clutch with fox head detail will surely be on many wish lists (and in fact can be purchased right now on the Burberry website, along with lots of other bags and many of the coats from the collection, through February 26), and the bow belts are a wardrobe no brainer.
All in all, the fall 2012 Burberry Prorsum collection is filled with the fantastic, quintessentially British, beautifully made pieces the 156-year-old luxury brand is known for. See the complete collection here and watch the full show below.
