Burberry Prorsum Men Ready-to-Wear Fall 2012
This season seems to be all about the suit…the three-piece suit. Fall 2012 menswear is making men look feel and good, a little playful but all together polished.
Christopher Bailey said he wanted to “marry British city and country dressing for a polite and charming collection that felt traditional, but also approachable and familiar”
The looks were quirky and possessed an subtle boyish quality admits more traditional dandy edges and sharply streamlined silhouettes . For suiting (a prominent component of the collection/season), Bailey drew on the brands sartorial quality and military history. We saw highly tailored suits with a plate of plum, olive and teal , fabrics of velvet, herringbone and tweed wool. Velvet was added into collars, trenches and topcoats of tweed gave the collection a more foraml edge, following with season’s trend of a more polished man. We saw a return to Burberry’s fishing vest, quilted and warn over a jacket, leather and suede shooting jackets, chunky knit sweaters and subtle details of beaded appliqué fox heads, 80 style gold studs, polka-dot neckties made appearances as well this season. Very English, very on point and very Christopher Bailey.
