BURBERRY PRORSUM FW2012 COLLECTION
I am a fasioneista on a mission. I'm a fasioneista that is in love - in a mission to spread the love that I profoundly feel for Burberry Prorsum's entire FW2012 collection. Since Bailey's inception as the brand's Creative Director, he has brought Burberry to the pinnacle of its magnificence and this season is by far no different. His men's line brought to life the notion of country living, which is an excellent precursor of what the female RTW line is all about. Dapper gentlemen are seen on the runway and it is nothing short of a miracle how Bailey has married country aesthetics to that of the big city in such an unexpectedly alluring manner.
And much like the men's line, women's RTW exemplifies elegant country living with herringbone tweed and stripes as key patterns and quirky animals as centerpieces in his FW creations. Don't you just love those animal prints? I'm so tempted to collect each and every one of them! Oh, and if the entire collection wasn't fantastic enough - the way he ended the show, with umbrellas open and seeming snowflakes and rain streaming down - genius! Sheer genius! It just emphasized how perfect the entire collection is for the season.
Sleek, sexy and country glam to the nth level - these are just a few of the words that pop into my head when I watch this show [oh and I do this over and over and over again! That's how much I just love it!]. Below are some of my favorite pieces and some of which I think are definite a.Must Haves! Don't you agree? If only I can be decked in all Prorsum for FW[lest we forget, I live in a country where there are only 2 known weather forecasts - sunny and rainy]. Well, I can dream can't I?
