Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2012 Collection
There’s more than a little bit of a ’30s feel to this collection, as in the chrysanthemum dress, with its high neckline, short sleeves and flared skirt, as well as the various accentuated shoulders, below-the-knee hems, fitted coats and jackets, and high waists throughout. The gowns look like they stepped right off the screen of some Depression-era melodrama where a country girl gets a taste of high society and goes to fabulous parties where she leans against marble columns as she fends of suitors and sips Champagne. On the flip side, there’s this very tweedy, very British countryside feel, especially in the menswear. The combination produces a take that feels classically British and terribly chic. We love the muted colors and gorgeous tailoring. Minions with Black Cards are free to buy us any of the coats here. Please contact us for details.
