Burberry Prorsum AW14

Cultural nomads swathed in expressionist scarves and floral watercolour prints

Initial reaction:

The worldwide traveler swathed in abstract printed scarves and layered with a plethora of textures: cultural nomad meets expressionist artist. Tradition is met with the institutional Burberry shearling aviator jacket, revamped by the addition of a carefree floral painted design.

Layer it up:

Black embroidered organza, heavily appliquéd lace, mustard teddy-bear fur, shearling lined chocolate suede, burnt orange silk, olive mohair and thick wool blankets – like those from Burberry Prorsum menswear AW14. Whatever the texture, it was endorsed with a magnitude of layers.

How they wore it:

One word, fierce. From the soft floral watercolour style prints to the bold black, burgundy and emerald paneled fur, each look was worn with attitude, cementing that the Burberry woman is not to be messed with.

Model behaviour:

Raven haired Edie Campbell in a sheer burgundy lace floral skirt, her trailing scarf tucked into a thin black belt.


Live performances from Ed Harcourt, Rhodes and Paloma Faith accompanied the catwalk – Paloma dressed head to toe in Burberry Prorsum, of course.
