As usual, Burberry was a tour de force in outerwear. Then again, that’s what fall shows are really about. The most memorable pieces were definitely the technicolor dream coats that started off the show. This group was patent and bold, a nice change to the often muted outerwear pieces that tend to dull an entire look down. After the vibrant pieces came a more subtle and traditional mix of toggles, brown plaid and shearling—much more approachable for the conservative customer. To top the show off there were details of cow print and a finale of rain and clear hooded slickers. It was a more light-hearted show than we’re used to seeing from Mr. Bailey, perhaps a nod to the slowly recovering economy. It never hurts to see a little optimism on the runway.

trussardi 1911 a/w 2010
thoughts: whoa nelly, love this stuff. i have to say i’ve never really payed much attention to trussardi but this collection really peaked my interest. the understated fring shown in look 1 is pretty boss and would be a nice pick me up to some more drab clothes. not really a fan of the sneakers in 2 and 3 but i love the coat, shirt and tie. but the coat with the detailing on the wrists is freaking incredible. the outerwear coming out of milan is truly outrageously awesome and i’m seeing fur collars pretty much everywhere. at this point the trussardi coat is at the number 1 spot.
