another LOOK: BURBERRY PRORSUM menswear classics aw13
Classics and throwbacks embody branded characteristics of what made them so popular in the first place, so of course we heart the classics! The menswear show by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey featured striking Burberry campaign models Charlie France, Max Rendell, and Alex Dunstan. Guests included Anna Dello Russo, editor-at-large & creative consultant for Vogue Japan, Chinese fashion icon Wyman Wong, and a host of handsome front-row(ers) including Greg James, Elyas M’Barek, Alex Uhlmann, and the Treadaway twins (Brit actors Harry + Luke).
The Burberry Prorsum mens fall 2013 collection features traditional outerwear and playful cool weather accouterments among other layerable pieces. Of course trench coats and tailored jackets topped the list – interesting styles of duffle coats, donkey jackets, and Chesterfields added dimension. Fabrics ranged from customary Gabardine to a softer side with velvet and cashmere, while colors were rich in reds, greens, and purple against khaki shades. More than usual of fun with prints and patterns, especially the various heart incarnations added some charismatic elements, as did accessories like the Boston bag, Studded winklepicker shoes, animal print sunglasses, and the Britain watch. Properly Prorsum — the line was showcased to the beat of British musicians Amy Macdonald and Jake Bugg.
The instant gratification of technology today makes following fashion so much more fun – consider this, when we say Burberry Prorsum “live from Milan” – we mean live streaming off the runway, with looks from one of the hottest labels. The Regent Street Flagship store in London played a simulcast and a social stream optimized for exploring the fashions was ready to go immediately after the show, to include a downloadable audio soundtrack as well. A bit of the future at your fingertips; made to order pieces are deliverable in just 8 weeks time – all through Burberry.com. fdm selects from the Burberry Prorsum menswear fw 013 runway and front row by Brigitte Segura.
