Look One - The Experimental Silhouette
Christopher Bailey's Autumn Winter '11 collection for Burberry Prorsum played on themes set out in AW '10. Rounded shoulders, shearling trims, super-skinny trousers, high collars and over-sized knits were once again inter-weaved throughout, though this time splashes of colour and experimentation with silhouettes added a splash of energy to the mix. Which is not to suggest that Bailey's previous collections have been less energetic. Much the contrary.Stand out pieces included bright, patent macs and duffle coats, a slim cut take on the puffa jacket and - as always - a selection of supremely chunky knits. Invest.
