Roving Reporter : Burberry Prorsum

Christopher Bailey is the man that resurrected, resuscitated Burberry if you like. This season, showing Milan (Come Back Home!) Burberry Prorsum showed a beautifully tailored collection in a monochrome palette. Flashes of colour were offered in the form of bronzed creams, nude and brown tones that really lightened the collection.
BP really does do great basics and this season was no different. 
There was some great suiting, incredibly androgynous and slick in its fit (very Milan).
Straight leg trousers were definitely the look of the collection, with longer line 'man style' jackets.
I love this speckled wool. There has been a lot of block colour in suiting this season, but very little in terms of textured colour, so though this may be off trend, Burberry is ensuring that there is real choice for their solid base of clientele. 

Over sized outerwear was quite standard at the Burberry P show, love this metallic weave coat, with great double breast button detailing. Personally though I would go for a waist belt to give a bit more definition, especially if you have curves, otherwise you will drown in this one!
Great patch pockets though, maybe we can do away with costly handbags and just pour our money into practical coats?!

Is it a cape? Is it a coat? Does anyone know?! Where are her hands?! Do I love this coat/cape any less? NO, I LOVE it! look at all the gorgeous fur! Sigh, I want that one!

Dress coat, ooooooh. 
Tribal / Futuristic print : CHECK
Structured Shoulders : CHECK
Monochrome : CHECK
So much on trend, this is a beautifully designed and perfected basic. Again, team with a patent black belt (skinny or thick - oh the choice!) for maximum impact.

Loving these floppy, fisherman hats! So not a trend normal women can get away with, but still definitely something I 'heart'.
Love the trouser shape, its having an identity crisis. Part straight, part, skinny, almost debating converting to a peg. Either way it is championing the 'front' pleat look of A/W 09. The jacket is very masculine. It definitely looks like a 'borrowed from my boyfriend' number. Oh so chic and versatile.

LBD with a twist!
Love the vintage, 'antique,' print. I know I think fashion is a work of art, but now it truly is. Sculptured bodices were pretty much everywhere at LFW, so BP is fitting right in with the London look here. Great detailing, tres versatile.

TREND ALERT! There was soooo much velvet on the LFW catwalks (though for the ladies not for the chaps). However I am totally loving this velvet tux for the Burberry P boys! This green/black tone is gorgeous!

Firstly, look at how tiny this models legs are! She looks like she is walking on twigs!!! Now that I have recovered from that! Check out the perfect cover up for a night out! (no not round SoHo, posh parties only please!)
Burberry do the best, classic, macs in the whole wide world, so I am loving this beautiful, black coat. More entrancing however is this fabulous, coffee toned party frock. Fab antique print and full fifties skirt. Superb!

Do love this new BP collection, Bailey we love you!!!!
