Burberry: Pre-Fall 2016

Burberry, pure Burberry. No more Prorsum, no more Brit, no more London. Just pure, distilled, 100% proof Burberry. Because this Pre-Fall 2016 collection is the first time that the Brit-house is combined under a single name – taking all the best parts from each and combining them into something even better. Think of it as the Long Island Ice Tea of collections – thought tequila, rum, gin and vodka couldn’t taste any better? Well, combine them – a delicious and heady mix, as any alcohol-lover knows. Which is like this Pre-Fall collection. A sum of its parts. There are the long, elegant lines and rich fabrications of Prorsum, the classic London trench, reworked in suede and a touch of Brit casualness by way of a slouchy MA1 bomber and oversized puffa. Add an air of the Seventies and a sprinkle of military embellishment to the proceedings and you have the perfect cocktail. The highlight? Well, there are many, but we’re particularly fond of the shoe-covering flares. Because who needs to see your shoes anyway? One less decision in the morning. Plus, they make your legs longer. And who wouldn’t want that? But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself – click through the gallery above to peruse the entire collection…
