Burberry AW/09 Prorsum Pre-Collection


Season: Autumn / Winter 2009.10
Designed by Christopher Bailey
Burberry Prorsums Pre-Collection, with its impeccably tailored suits, oversized coats, t-shirts detailed in historic imagery, warm jumpers, colors ranging from light gray, dark blue to black, will get you quite set for the upcoming season, counting the days 'till the full collection hits the stores.
With outerwear and trench-coats being the base of the collection, introducing materials like dishevelled velvet, is possibly preparing the customer for bigger role of already existing Burberry denim. Never the less even with half a century old inspiration for the upcoming season, classic lines are adjusted to needs of young and sophisticated buyer. And that classic line, is what these pieces, makes into real investment pieces, something longterm, not just for the moment.

The season is about reinvention – redefining and re-modernising the core of what
Burberry stands for with our authentic British spirit and point of view.” – Christopher Bailey.
