London life

Burberry Pror­sum

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

The quin­tes­sen­tial Bri­tish brand of­fered a pa­tri­otic col­lec­tion, jux­ta­pos­ing light­weight looks with heav­ier wools, suede and mo­hair. Mod­els wore scarves bear­ing London maps knot­ted around their necks and land­marks such as St Paul’s Cathe­dral were printed on sweaters. Trench coats were in show­er­proof silk made from su­perfine yarn and worn un­lined, with fish­er­men’s vests peek­ing out. Bri­tish- wo­ven blan­kets and rugs looked strik­ing worn across the body with prints in­spired by vin­tage English wall­pa­per de­signs. Knitwear in­cluded heavy- duty sheep­skin jack­ets, fish­er­man’s rib cardi­gans and Aran sweaters. The St Ives bag was worn over­sized, hand- painted with ab­stract and fig­u­ra­tive prints. Colours were good enough to eat— bit­ter choco­late, dark plum, zesty yel­low and dark tan­ger­ine.
