Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2010 – 2011 Shoes

I really enjoyed the Burberry Fall Winter 2010 – 2011 collection. There was lots of shearling, huge collars and aviation influence. It was a coat lovers dream: cropped, long, oversized and sleek. The clothing definitely took a back seat.

Burberry Prorsum continued with their “clunky stompers” footware trend juxtaposed with sleek boots. Rugged shearling lined boots with multiple buckles are transformed with a stiletto.   They came in various heights too.

A stark contrast to the clunky stompers were sleek thigh high boots in leather and reptile skin.

I like the shearling boots.  What do you think?  The ankle boot version is my favourite.  I think a flat version of the knee-high version would be amazing for fall.  The models in the show aren’t having problems walking in them so I’m assuming they aren’t too heavy.  There is a lot of stomping though.  Check out the full Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2010 – 2011 womenswear show.

Burberry Toronto Store Opening Party

The Burberry store in Toronto opened quietly in October. The opening fete was last week and I was in attendance.

Burberry celebrated the recent opening of its new flagship store on Bloor Street in Toronto, Canada. Over 200 guests attended the event at the store including Ali Larter who wore Burberry.

Music on the evening was provided by British DJ Tom Guinness who features in the Autumn Winter 2009 Burberry ad campaign and who was flown in from New York for the event.

I had already checked the place out and was disappointed that majority of items in the store were of the Burberry check variety. I thought they did a better job with the men’s clothing than the women’s. I was hoping for more of the unusual pieces from Burberry Porsum in the store. Alas, they were left behind in England, unfit for Canadian consumption. Boo. The store is pretty nice. It’s 2 floors and carries Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, Burberry Brit collections as well as Burberry Sport, Childrenswear and accessories.

Tom Guinness played amazing music. It was the best set I’ve heard at an event like this. The crowd of fashion folk and socialites seems to be divided. It seemed like the front of the store was more fashion people and the back was more socialites. Interesting dynamic to watch.

I brought my camera but I was too busy chatting with friends to take pictures. Bad blogger. I have to thank ASC for providing me with these photos shot by the excellent George Pimentel.

Burberry Prorsum Resort 2010

It was all about the pants for me at Burberry Prorsum Resort 2010. I want them all. You can also see the strong shoulder is permeating through all designers.

I really liked new style of trench dress that Christopher Bailey presented this season. There is just enough minimal use of trench details for the idea of a trench in the dress to come across.

Burberry Prorsum Ready to Wear – Spring 2009


Burberry is known for their trench coats and I love the ombre treatment Christoper Bailey had added this season.

Love the pants, I’m really obsessed with the baggy right now. The shoes are getting too ridiculous. Look how high that heel is, crazy. This is another trend I’ve noticed over the fashion weeks, Super, Super, Super high platforms.
