For the Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection entitled ‘Coats of Many Colours’ , Burberry’s Creative Director Cristopher Bailey was inspired by archive photographs by David Bailey of Jean Shrimpton, a Burberry house model in the 1960’s, and the British weather. Additionally, Bailey based his womenswear silhouette on the sculptures of artist Barbara Hepworth.
As expected, the outerwear is the star of the show, with coats coming in a plethora of colours of tangerine, olive green, tomato red, purple and blue, together with classic black, white and monochrome. The fabrics of choice are as varied as the colours, coming in cashmere, wool, bold plaids and autumnal tweeds, embelished with a selection of furs includinf, fake, fox and sheepskin. The outerwear detailings includes miltary epaulettes, buttons and fastenings, kimono sleeves, dropped waists and leather stap fastenings.
Almost all outerwear is accessorised with matching handbags and fluffy flat caps, and worn with exaggerated flared trousers or skinny leggings. There is also a small selection of chunky cable knitwear, simple dresses and elegant tailoring to be worn under the statement outerwear. So without further ado, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Ready-to-Wear collection from Burberry…enjoy!
