Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2010 RTW

Designed by Yorkshireman Christopher Bailey, Burberry Prorsum's 53-piece Fall collection was a “salute to the services”, referencing Burberry’s long involvement with the military.

The “Burberry Cadet Girls” formed a military parade, in updated sheepskin flying jackets, bristling with buckles and zips, officer’s mess jackets, khaki trouser suits, trench-coats, and naval reefer jackets.


The collection was sexed-up with skin-tight lace and satin body-conscious dresses, worn over thigh-high leather and some gorgeous snakeskin boots.
More tailored shapes came in the form of officer-style greatcoats, pea coats and trenches in khaki and Windsor blue. Gold buttons and epaulettes provided extra military touches.

For the more rock'n'roll civilian, there were shaggy white takes on the Afghan coat, ruched silk or velvet dresses and skirts in plum and chartreuse and lace shirts.

The show was packed with celebs- Kate Hudson, Twilight star Kristen Stewart, Mary-Kate Olsen, Claire Danes, even Anna Wintour herself was there.
