Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn / Winter 2014 Collection
Burberry Prorsum Menswear: AW13
Burberry Prorsum AW13
Whilst previous collections from Burberry Prorsum illustrate the sophisticated tailoring that chief creative officer Christopher Bailey is renowned for, their recent Fall 2013 showcase at Milan Fashion Week introduced the brand’s playful side.
With the landmarks of London silhouetted across the backdrop of the catwalk, Burberry’s English heritage was clear for everyone to see as they presented their range of iconic trench coats and outerwear – which came in traditional autumn/winter hues such as beige, camel, khaki and military green.
The more quirky aspects of the collection came in the form of safari inspired, animal print garments. From tiger lapels to leopard print topcoats and holdalls, the look as a whole was definitely more chic than it was Bet Lynch.
Although animal print can look over the top or garish, Burberry Prorsum managed to make it seem all the more wearable by utilising the print to add a shot of texture and/or pattern to individual looks. These statement pieces were typically paired with neutral, monochromatic tones in order to help retain a sense of elegance and ground the outfit.
Other key items included shirts and knitwear that came complete with an allover love heart print, which reflected the collection’s ‘I Love Classics’ theme. Again, these items emphasised the playfulness of the show as a whole and whilst they may be worn by the more eccentric, they are easily toned down with muted surrounding colours.
Overall, this was one of my favourite Bailey shows. It’s definitely one of his most eccentric, which should appeal to both a younger audience and Burberry traditionalists alike.
