Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2012 Menswear

I will leave it to the professionals to critic and review the collection. Here on this post, I am just going to do what fan boys do... drool and covet over which pieces I like and will buy from Burberry Prorsum's Fall Winter 2012 Menswear collection as unveiled yesterday in Milan.

Christopher Bailey has been on a roll creating some of my favourite collections at Burberry Prorsum for 2 consecutive seasons. Spring Summer 2012's quirky artisan inspired cork sole shoes and colourful ready to wear scored a thumbs up... and now for this new Fall Winter 2012 menswear collection, I am again swooned.

Combining traditional English styles (think Sherlock Holmes and leading men of TV series Downtown Abbey) with an outdoorsy adventure spirit of dapper gentlemen and all their hunting gear, the collection balances refinement and utilitarian spirit in mens dressing. Nothing stuffy or boring, with just enough quirks to excite. Fox beaded appliqués on sweaters and shirts, animal heads (greyhounds and ducks) on brollies and studs on gloves/document cases add the right amount of interest against the sartorial smarts of the collection. Hunting and field jackets, tweed trenches and jaunty polka dot prints are also highlights. I especially love the proportion of short coats over suits which is young and refreshing.

So what will I buy if money was not a problem... here's my picks from the collection:

1) Fox Graphic Print Shirt - I love the quirky animal print!
2) Duck head brollies - It's the new accessory and totally applicable for year end rainy Singapore weather...
3) Suede Patchwork Document Case - Preorder now at for SGD2390. (Kinda Céline-ish but still very desirable)
4) Studded Leather Document Case - I love studs! (but the price is astronomical at SGD8295!)

What will be your picks?

The the color way of the suede patchwork case totally reminds me of Alexander McQueen's tri-color card case...
