BEAUTY: Clothing--Burberry Prorsum

Famous for the its classic trench coat, Burberry was founded in 1856, and invented gabardine, but by the 1980s, the brand had seriously sagged. In 2001, Christopher Bailey saved it from obscurity and has done a good job re-branding the house.

Burberry Prorsum just showed a rich Fall-Winter collection in Milan and among the expected browns, grays, and blacks were colors that are unexpected for fall such as teal and orange! A silhouette that could belong to Mr. Steed gave way to some great knits, and a charming, stylized fox head showed up here and there. But of particular note is the very short-waisted, quilted jacket worn over a blazer!
