London Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum
Think about the English country sporting life, as well as military… and menswear influences (tweed, corduroy, fatigue greens). Highly shaped structured jackets with shapely hips and pockets…. Also look for a newer shape for them: a drawstring “army surplus” anorak shown over a tiered guipure skirt.
Also, Burberry London was a very good interpretation of the runway, with moto-cross details added in which were great.
In 1865, tailor’s apprentice Thomas Burberry founded the British firm Burberry with a collection of outerwear. The house’s most famous creation, the trench coat, was created for soldiers fighting in the WWI trenches. Fast forward 150 years, and today the brand is known for classically chic ready-to-wear, fragrances, timepieces, children’s clothes, and more in addition to timeless trench coats. Its iconic check pattern is recognizable around the world as a mark of luxury.
