parade// Burberry Prorsum

Burberry is a favorite collection of mine for Fall/10 Ready to Wear. Christopher Bailey has sent jackets down the runway that will keep you warm! And they are so freekin sweet man :D.

Thin, mid-thigh high boots or heavy, chunky, buckled, sheepskin lined boots of varied heights. It's also interesting all of the textures Bailey has used in this one collection, shiny and ruffled, wool, leather, snakeskin, fur. And almost all of that in 1 outfit.
:) The palette is very organic and military, but reminds me of autumn leaves. Good for a fall Collection ;). It's Very Burberry.
Khaki and browns command the ranks with a solid presence, black is always on watch, standing to attention as flashes of royal blue parade in and command attention and pretty burgundy's and white rustle through with ruffled dresses, skirts and bags, adding some elegance to the end of the collection.
I don't love every piece, but it is truly a collection that is done Well, and that feels complete in itself.

Christopher Bailey says he was inspired by an aviator jacket from the archives whilst thinking of cadet girls and uniforms. And he says he had fun doing it. (,2010). This really shows in this collection I believe. Everything he put on the runway looks like something he wanted to get out of himself, that he wanted to be out there.
I'm glad he did.
