Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2012 Menswear

For fall/winter 2012 Burberry Prorsum presents us 'The Gentlemen', a sharp collection you can easily imagine a modern Sherlock Holmes wearing. Christopher Bailey created a perfect mix of traditional British style with modern influences and showed fitted, tailored suits, various trench coats and bomber jackets and tapered trousers. The suits were either buttoned up for a classic look completed with shirt and tie or worn unbuttoned with sweaters that came with discreet yet eye-catching graphic prints. There's no Burberry Prorsum collection without outstanding outwear and the brands heart and key piece the trench coat was presented in its classic form as well as some oversized ones. Aside from the trench coats there were also double-breasted, fitted wool coats which are simply perfect for 'The Gentlemen' and bomber jackets that also came in cropped versions. Bailey showed colour blocking in a more subtle way in form of geometrical shapes and stripes on sweaters and the bottom of some coats. Other sweaters and shirts came with beaded owls and foxes and animal prints. The looks were accessorized with umbrellas that have animal head handles, brogues, lace-up derby shoes, cases, holdalls, flat caps, college stripe and polka dot neck ties. As usual you can order the collection instantly on
