It’s a Burberry Prorsum kind of day in New York. The monotonous London-like fog tempts thoughts of more colorful skies, trench coats litter the office, and Kate Middleton is once again putting Great Britain on the map – this time with her high-profile pregnancy. Thus, the love inherent in viewing pre-fall 2013 may in fact be subject to extraneous conditions. But maybe not.
Christopher Bailey has, once again, capitalized on outerwear, this time with skinny topcoats in color/fabric blocks and fauna prints (a giraffe-on-python women’s trench could mark the epoch of a mixed-animal trend). There’s an innate confidence in Bailey’s designs, a thoroughly compressed and studied realization of “the entire look,” and it never, ever strays from the brand’s image. In simpler terms: you know it’s Burberry Prorsum without even checking the caption.
A cutesy and timely note: on the men’s side, Bailey incorporated both a lo-fi Buckingham Beefeater motif and a smattering of repeated hearts – perhaps a subtle nod to the Royal Family’s imminent need for increased security in about nine months time.
