Once again at London Fashion Week Christopher Bailey wowed fashion- lovers everywhere with his Burberry Prorsum collection. But if you can’t quite afford the designer brand, Models Direct explains how to get the Autumn/Winter 2010 Burberry look on a budget.
Military. The military trend from spring and summer shows is set to continue into the winter. Burberry has a history of involvement with the armed forces and this was prominent in the ‘salute to the services’ themed collection.
The trend can be achieved with jackets featuring gold buttons, numerous buckles around the sleeves and zipped pockets. Jackets also had zips around the waist to crop the jackets into shorter versions. For women, jackets were either worn open and oversized with large shoulders or trim and tailored, nipped in at the waist.
Colours. The colours on the catwalk were all kept quite murky with greens, browns and navy being most prominent. However, things were brightened up with rich purples, vibrant blues and bright mustard shades.
Boots. Over-the-knee boots is obviously another trend that plans to stick around, with Burberry’s being thigh thigh-high, pointy-toed and in snakeskin effect. If this is a bit too daring for you, sheepskin-lined buckled boots were also seen on the catwalk in knee and ankle lengths. No doubt there will be some much more wearable versions in the high street when autumn rolls round again. Lace Lace-up boots were also a popular choice for the menswear.
Fabrics. Fur, sheepskin and leather were prominent features on the coats on the catwalk, but Models Direct recommends you go faux if you’re thinking of wearing fur. The bulkiness of these bulky fabrics were contrasted and feminised with delicate lace and satin.
All in all the Burberry collection was attractive and wearable and one that Models Direct feel will be easy to emulate for autumn and winter.
