Burberry Prorsum’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, produced another triumphant collection for the classic British label for spring/summer 2011. It was once more a case of leaving the best till last, as the show pulled in the starriest front row of the week for the unveiling of the best collection.
Always a much-anticipated occasion, the show didn’t disappoint. Held in the halls of the Chelsea College of Art and Design, the show, set to an acoustic soundtrack including 17 Again by The Eurythmics, featured some of the best coats ever to grace a catwalk. The classic leather biker jacket remains an emblem of cool, and the Burberry Prorsum version for spring is tough-girl chic at its best with authentic ribbed biker padding on the elbows and shoulders, and quilted panels.
You can watch the show here and 17 Again starts around 9.25 into the show.
