Burberry Prorsum menswear Pre-fall 2011


not too long now till january 2011, when menswear fashion week kicks off in milan/pitti, where the fall winter 2011 collections will be presented. if these pre-fall images from burberry prorsum are a taster of what to come, then i am really excited about what they are showing in january. gone are the fw10 military influences and ss11's biker, leather, studs galore. they are bringing romanticism back for fall 2011.

the coats spell longevity, and the brogues reworked with rubber soles for more practicality but not losing the style quotient. wishlisting it already. what i am really surprised with, is that they've up their game with their bags.



what appeared to be grey wool bags came with really nice selvedge detailings/print, finished with very delectable chocolate brown leather trims. they got it so right.



who would have thought, shearling collars with nylon jackets? not evident from the pic, but the nylon coat is lined with shearling/sheep's fleece.




i love the whole look. really love the jumper, and love the whole matt shine from the utterly gorgeous bag. i hope there's a smaller version.


and i kept my favourite look for last. i really really really love the styling, that mohair sweater is so delectable, i think it's the closest thing i find resembling nicholas hoult's iconic white mohair sweater on "a single man". paired with the mustard vest, it's just 00o00h so nonchalant chic.

burberry debuted "buying off the runway" last season. i believe they will do it again this time. if some of the above pieces are included and made available within 6 weeks, i will be seriously tempted. we will still be in the deep of winter when delivery is made. practical and way ahead of season.

  2. Today i saw a GORGEOUS piece of Thomas Burberry. A camel coat from the FW 06 or 07. Totally in the mood of the actual trend. A little navy style, + the camel color = i WANT this coat.

  3. the only thing that bother me it's the fake walking. why they didn't stick to the basic lookbook poses. i'm sure highstreet brands are half-way of producing some of the jackets.

  4. What I love the most about this and which is what I've been feeling (and trying to produce) already in my own wardrobe this winter, is a return to deep,intense color. I love that faux-isle jumper too - that's SO on the list already!

    By the way, they DO like to mix fur with nylon sometimes - I have a nylon coat from Prorsum's FW 2007 runway collection that has this combo.

  5. amazing collection, although i'd rather see more rock-n-roll and military-themed ones;) this collection is a bit too reserved for me. elegant, though, but perhaps it'll appeal to more matured audiences, i think:)

  9. Thank....GOD....
    I have been longing for the comeback of Bailey's talent. Afterall, he is not the hedi slimane type of guy.
    HOWEVER, don't you think it's a little bit too Gucci? I mean camel coat, young college type of model, even the pose is similar. I just fingercross that this will not happen.

  11. Love the blue jumper and the mohair sweater! However, I feel I've seen the big bags from LV before?

  12. Had already seen the collection. Txs for posting it picture by picture.
    Indeed, I'd buy the whole collection!

  13. At some point Burberry was at risk of becoming a bourgeois decoy of Balmain - at least in their women's lines. I am glad to see this is no longer the case - at least in the men's lines!

  15. I REALLY like the camel sweater with the tree design. As a lover of brogues I'm excited about these ones, mine are great but they do kill my feet. I'm willing to suffer for style but it's nice to know I don't have to now.
