What do Von Dutch, the Zimbabwe Dollar, Steven Segal’s career and the Burberry print have in common? They are all helplessly in the salvage yard for damaged phenomenon. United Kingdom’s golden boy, Burberry, became victim in a retail robbery where the brand was partially seized by Chavs. It’s logical that you haven’t seen the word in the English dictionary as it’s a socially fabricated negative notion given to London’s favourite group of people to hate. The Chavs are youngsters primarily between 14-25 spending most of their days in Nike wind runners, rebook trainers blasting British rap in a 1.4L Opel Astra with an oversized spoiler and painfully exaggerated exhaust note. Recently the hottest item in world of Chavs was Kanye West shutter shades but their number one signature is bogus Burberry items, caps in particular. Their tainted spoken English is also a distinct character trait that if heard, can drop your IQ by 30 points.

Chavs’ strong love for the Burberry has tragically led to national condemnation of the classic check print to the point where even the lower middle class or the Chavs themselves don’t wear it. It hasn’t ended there as spotting anyone wearing the print is almost as hard finding a snow leopard in Hyde Park. Given the prints near non-repairable condition of the brand, Christopher Bailey’s new rescue plan will unlikely be successful. Sprinkling the print it here and there in Burberry Prorsum is blasphemy as the customer base buying runway fashion aren’t of the type that want to indiscreetly prance the brand they’re wearing. More importantly the print is what has distinguished Burberry Prorsum apart from the Burberry. The classic print has no place on the runway and stands out more than a venereal dieses.

Everything else in the collection is as expected, impeccably tasteful with some pleasant surprises. Bailey’s eye for design and fashion is second to none with Tom Ford sharing the number one spot with him. Whatever they craft hits the highest tone on the spectrum of style, and Burberry Prorsum AW0910 is classy but very cosmopolitan just like how we like it served. Previously seen components are the immensely attractive pleated trousers and familiar Industrial Revolution styled train operator’s hats.

T-shirts or anything goofy like random graphics or prints are a rare sight in the Prorsum collection but this time the fashion Giant hasn’t been short on surprises. Hard to identify the graphic seem to portray some old poet or thinker of some sort, feel free to share you potential insight on this matter if you’re strong in the subject of history. Subtle in grey the print still fall in-line with the formal and well polished perception of Bailey’s designs. Other flashbacks from history include narrow bow ties, Duke inspired trench coat and a healthy dosage of velvet.

Stop trying to revive boot cut.

The Burberry print belong in the entry level line, the former glory will never be restored.
Beige trench coats look severely out of place.

+
The grey hip cinchers?

Oversized knitwear with braids.

The glossy shoes.

Grade: 7.2/10 Ignoring the painful sight of the tacky Burberry prints there is very little to detest. Every outfit is concise with dreamy piece across the broad making this a consecutive home run by Burberry Prorsum.

I think they did a great job. I particularly love the coats. Reminds me of my last post on 18th century fashion.

Your rating is too high....WAAAYYY too high. I'd give this collection a 7. Nothing exciting here, save for THAT black jacket with the red lapels.

Please review Gucci next. I want to laugh.

Bill said...

Looks pretty damned boring to me, mate. However, I did somewhat like the black coat with the red lapels. But, that's about it out of the entire collection.

Personally, I'm sick of the use - overuse is more like it though - of black and grey in a/w menswear collections. If I had to dress like this all winter I'd probably want to slit my wrist, and allow myself to bleed out, before spring rolled around. Just because it's cold and dark in the winter, must we dress to match the oppressive weather? I think not.

The comments about chavs are just another form of classism though. And, no, I'm not one. However, I do despise all forms of prejudice and discrimination.

Aaron: Yeah, the touch of Victorian fashion is a nice welcome.

Anonymous: Having had a good night sleep I think you're right. Compared with previous collection this one is relatively stripped down and I have dropped the rating. Gucci was an expected disappointment and I'll vent my opinion on it soon.

Bill: Black and grey is relatively dull but challenges designers in making striking collection without relying too much on catchy colours. I for one thinks colours are best worn during winter when the mood is all down and depressing.

I certainly hope that you including everyone else wasn't offended by my comments about Chavs. They are certainly not bad people in anyway and I light no emotional hatred on them. It's more their lifestyle that make people chuckle. Classism is horrible and I'm glad it's for the most part diminished in the UK.

This collection is very nice, my opinion of Burberry has changed

eclectic said...

I personally like blacks and greys, because the provide the greatest contrast for just a the smallest splash of colour (or large depending on your style) which can turn that 'depressing' look into something smashing. I pretty much fawn over every single A/W collection no matter the quality because in northern Australia, with our winters reaching an all low of 10 degrees celsius (if that) there is hardly excuse to be wearing layers of clothing or coats, and so our fashion range is somewhat limited.
