Burberry Prorsum creates Hybrids for Fall/Winter 2012-2013

The collection was packed with outerwear that was all about cross-breeding country with city dressing. Inspiration came from hunting, shooting and horseback riding, and working them in an urban wardrobe. Yes, it was a call from the wild - from the Scottish hillsides abloom with heather, the green hills and the dales of Yorkshire and, of course, the gritty streets of London. "I love the idea of merging worlds - the digital and physical worlds, the country and city." This collection is a testimony of how Christopher Bailey creates hybrids of clothing and how genius he is in doing so.

A trenchcoat with a plaid peplum, a cropped herringbone bomber jacket with a shearling lining and a quilted burgundy coat for evening are all examples. To give more sense of the country side there owls and dogs on knits and blouses, and ornamental animal heads on belt buckles and umbrellas.

Bailey also worked a Thirties chrysanthemum print into shift dresses and on his pencil skirt a big fat, curving ruffle that cascaded at the front. The elasticized bow belt was shown in many colors and cinched a many coat, jackets and dress.
The collection is full of hybrids indeed and Burberry Prorsum is a brand that always shows magnificent outerwear and are fortunate to have Christopher Bailey as the chief creative officer because he is always thinking out of the box.
