Burberry Prorsum Menswear, AW13.

Happy New Year all! Sorry for the lack of posts over the Christmas period - as you can see, I've been really working on the layout of my blog so you all can access posts easier. Please give me your feedback as it's much appreciated!

An image taken during the finale of the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2013 Show - Milan, Saturday 12 January.

2013 has begun with a bang. The men's fashion weeks kicked off last week in London and have now moved on to Milan and Paris. So far, there has been one stand out show. Perhaps I am biased as I intern there, but the Burberry show really gave me everything a collection should. The collection, entitled 'I <3 Classics', revolutionised the trench coat and the way we look at animal print.

Rubber. Perhaps the most unconventional trench coat material used to date. But, if you think about it, it makes sense: rubber is totally waterproof! The rubber trench may look like a thing of the future, but Christopher Bailey is making it current.

I mentioned animal print before as the show was filled with it. From leopard to giraffe, coats and accessories were covered in exotic prints. For the more daring of you out there, you could try a leopard trench or if like me, you would never choose something so 'in your face',  how about a leopard print shoe or iPad case?

Like many preceding Burberry shows, military was a key theme running throughout many of the looks. This wool blend trench coat is a beautiful garment that will bring a historic trend into 2013 and the wine messenger bag compliments it perfectly.

See also: The show included some fun, heart print shirts and jumpers. For those looking for the chicest Christmas jumper at any 2013 festive party, look no further than Burberry.
