Trench Kisses: A Review of the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 Show



Striped TrenchThe Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 show was held on February 18, 2013 in Kensington Gardens, at a tent which was specially constructed for the event. Named “I Classics”, the collection was a take on the classic Burberry silhouettes and plaids in modern cuts and colors.

Christopher Bailey titled the show, “Trench Kisses, A Collection of Classics and Christine Keeler.” Christine Keeler was a 60’s models who had a famous affair with a British government minister, called the Profumo affair and, almost brought the govt. to a downfall. On mentioning her on the theme, he explained, “I liked the idea of this very established, classic heritage world meeting a sassy, sweet, sexy, subversive world.”

The show started with tunes of Happy Together and Picking up the Pieces, sung by Misty Miller. Then halfway through the show, the backdrop (flaunting an illusion of panels similar to the signature Burberry checks) opened up to reveal Tom Odell with a group of backup singers wearing black trenches; they gave a beautiful rendition of Tom’s song, “Hold me.”

The classic Burberry trenches were showcased in designs that had splashes of the modern era while still keeping its signature look in place. The coats were designed in interesting colors like wine red, polished black and some in a mix of dual-colors. They not only flaunted standout colors but also had a mix of different textures including flaps of rubber!

These coats were all prettily cinched with gold belts at the waist and, the shoe theme was kitten wedge heels designed with gold buckles.

Another highlight at the runway was the interesting prints. You could find everything from moji inspired heart-prints to graphic animal patterns of jaguar, giraffe, and leopard prints in the dresses, coats and sweaters.

Not so surprisingly, the show had a high – profile attending. The front row seats were occupied by a line of gorgeous girls including Rosie- Huntington Whitley, Rita Ora, Freida Pinto, Kate Beckinsale, Olivia Palermo, Michelle Dockery and more!
