Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2012
Burberry may well be Britain’s pre-eminent fashion brand, thanks to a glorious combination of classic fashion pieces and state of the art sales technique.
The Burberry Porsum Autumn Winter 2012 fashion show was broadcast live on the big screen to locations around the world including Beijing, and Heathrow Airport. The collection was also available for immediate purchase. Clever, no?
The fashions themselves were lovely,
Cord, tweed, horse-blanket and khaki coats, with pockets big enough to hold an ipad, or a small pet.
Padded pockets below a belted waist drew much attention to the hips, but not in a sex imbued hourglass style.
The vibe was quite traditionally British, wealthy country girl with a good life in the big city.
Very wearable, a modern take on the old school.
The finale was fabulous. Models strolled the runway with umbrellas as artificial rain showered the transparent roof of the show tent from the outside, while confetti rained down onto the umbrellas from the inside.
