The Burberry Prorsum menswear collection for autumn/winter 2015 – 2016, Classically Bohemian, is a feast for the eyes for global textile lovers. Large rebozo style fringed cashmere shawls are thrown over sophisticated suits, kantha like quilted jackets are combined with suede and shearling outerwear and hand embroidered coats, jackets, shirts, scarves and bags sparkle with mirror-work embroidery reminiscent of indigenous embroidery from India and Pakistan. I love the jewel-like colours palette, of ink, ochre, green, turquoise, purple, red, and fuchsia, the luxurious fabrics and the mix of influences in this collection. Sadly it’s menswear but I would happily wear one of the beautiful scarves and a large olive green bag is on my wish list.
A few shots of the collection below:
