MFW Burberry Prorsum AW 2012

Gold star Burberry!  I could almost stop there for this post, but I won’t as it would not do justice to such an incredible show and array of accessories.  Christopher Bailey and his team certainly pulled out all the stops with a collection called ‘The Gentleman’ featuring country side dandy, mixed with dapper English gent.

However, it was the accessories that stole the show.  The man-clutch made a number of appearances, again cementing it’s rightful position in a chaps wardrobe.  Ornate umbrella handles with clever ‘carry me anywhere’ straps were a nice touch. Spiked leather gloves, and bags brought a more gothic twist to some classic designs.  Whilst the over-sized ‘dirty weekend away’ bags should send every man running to book that trip away, just to take joy in packing his pants into it.

So Burberry Prorsum, it’s a gold star from us. Top job!
