To us, watching a scene of beautiful trench coats can be painful, given our humid climate and the beads of sweat which appear on our brow the minute we throw on anything with sleeves past our elbows. But here’s a brand which had us sitting up straighter in our seats with ideas flying on how and where to don Burberry’s impressive arsenal of coats this Fall/Winter 2011. Their sharp tailoring and rich pops of colour skewed towards the 1950s mod saw models flaunting colours of marigold, teal, carrot and ebony down the runway.
One of our favourites is a nude coat used in this month’s Burberry ad campaign, themed Burberry Nude and inspired by their new women’s fragrance Burberry Body. The campaign features Amber Anderson, Matthew Whitehouse, Edie Campbell and Rob Pryor.
So keep the dream alive. We’re already awaiting our sleigh ride in Helsinki to go with these.
