Chosen out of the Fall/Winter 2012 Menswear shows I came to a favourite: Burberry Prorsum. I simply adore the collection! The colours, the tailoring, the accessories, the fabric: it's all perfect. The show was called 'Gentlemen' and – oh yeah – gentlemen it was!
Fall/Winter 2012 will obviously be the Season of the Suit, according to the big runway shows. I love this fact, beacause a good suit or a well tailored blazer stands for security in a man's closet.
Prorsum's collection was filled with warm detailed colours as bordeaux, emerald and oker, which gave the whole look a rich, yet fresh feeling. Jackets were cleaved to the body, legs were strongly tapered, sweaters fitted with amazing floppy necks and the layering was refreshing. I really like the suites combined with wide necked bombards over it. It is the perfect clash of Military Man meets City Dandy Boy. It all divines panache with lots of elan; it's flair and sophistication with a bit of naughtiness on the side.

Not to forget and definitely one of the highlights of the collection were the accessories. Damn, they're lovely. Please, let it be rainy, because I want to work those umbrella's. The studded leather and colourful gloves are in a fabulous contrast with the clothing and the multicolour suede clutches are divine.

Christopher Bailey did it again. He makes me want to have it all. The bastard. Praise it for Burberry Prorsum's talented designer!
