Burberry Prorsum Pre-Collection Fall/Winter 2013‏

For pre-fall Christopher Bailey playfully interpreted signature Burberry silhouettes and colors with striking embellishments and new patterns. A cropped aviator jacket with bulky sleeves was combined with an exquisite jeweled skirt, while a chevron knit top was shown with a cool grommeted leather skirt. Bailey also mixed fabrics for some terrific outerwear pieces, including one tailored coat, its top in beige cashmere and bottom in an abstract dégradé printed calfskin. The menswear, which featured elegant double-breasted coats, slim-fit pants and T-shirts with whimsical motifs, like a Beefeater or an English bobby, provided a great counterpart.
