Elegant Dressing - Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer

Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer at Burberry presented a creative re-imagining of those forever staples, the denim jacket and trench coat from the Spring 2015 Prorsum collection.  The denim jacket has shrunk significantly and the sheepskin, silk, patent leather and suede details, gives this perennial favorite a new spin for Spring.  Wearing this jacket immediately puts you on-trend and will remain your favorite go to piece for seasons to come.

There was also a nod to the current fad for the 70's in suede for both the jackets and trenches.  My favorite jackets have the bright patent leather collar and cuff straps, contrasting nicely with the dark wash denim.  The latest iterations of the trench coat in linen have hand-screened prints in vivid colors and shapes of old book covers.  The patent leather details I like so much were also carried over to the trench coats.  As Tim Blanks at Style.com succinctly put it, "Like all huge fashion businesses, the product that Burberry produces is now heavily industrialized, and the key to customer engagement in the future is personalization."  These gorgeous trench coats certainly had that and you won't see repeats of yourself coming and going either.
