Sleek and sharp with a playful edge

The Christopher Bailey stamp is firmly on the PF13 Burberry Prorsum collection. The lookbook is sleek, and the pieces sharp with a playful edge. Black is the core colour of the collection, and works well with camel, claret and navy; making it anything but boring. In addition, the contrast of white creates striking monochrome looks. Outerwear remains the focus, as the classic mac is reinvented with prints, textures and oversized buttons. Also ticked off the checklist are overcoats, dress coats, duffle and cropped jackets. But itís all about the details that make these pieces unique to Burberry; a biker shoulder, leather sleeves and shearling are all featured. And the way to wear these pieces? Turn up the collar for the signature Burberry look.
Underneath the outerwear, there is still a lot going on. For women, the pencil skirt is the key piece. Waists are high and belted, topped off with a roll neck. For men, tailoring is juxtaposed with heart print shirt or giraffe print tee. Thereís also knitwear with a horse guard jacquard, a cheeky nod to the brandís British heritage.

My favourite piece has to be the heart printed shirt as I enjoy the playful nature of it. As the prominence of pre-season grows, Burberry Prorsum confirms its place at the top with this strong collection.
