Despising the appeal of the wide-leg trousers trend that we have seen on recent fashion shows from leading design houses, Burberry stays true to its elegant skinny look with their pre-spring 2012 arrivals. Featuring gentlemen in almost ‘bone-and-skin’ tight black trousers wearing beautiful Burberry trench coats, peacoats and jackets; it would be difficult to define British fashion better.
Sticking with the slim trousers in black allows the brand to unveil the beauty of its coats, where the resulting contrast emphasises both the exclusivity of materials used and the richness of colours. Far superior in both quality and price to many others, Burberry’s products have long been the epitome of luxury – and the newest collection will not disappoint.
While staying with the ‘skinny’ look on the lower half, Burberry remains equally stubborn when it comes to their outerwear. Rather than following the shorter cut of jacket that we have seen in Dolce & Gabbana’s A/W 11 collection, the coats have a prolonged oversized fit, which only adds to the theme of elegance and refinement running throughout the whole collection.
Our excitement for the the full spring/summer 2012 collection can hardly be contained after these new pre-releases – but whether you decide to go for a simple black trench, the double-breasted navy peacoat or the tailored quilted jacket, this will be a true ‘fashion investment’ rather than a purchase.
