Conservative classics from Burberry Black Label

Burberry Prorsum, it could easily be argued, is a trend-setter. Whether it’s the heavy, military strictness of one season or the bright mod Britishness of the next, under the guiding hand of Christopher Bailey the brand turns out some of the best examples of how to balance a long-standing heritage with seasonal trends. For the Burberry Black Label line, though, things are a little different. Perhaps that’s a reflection of the fact that it’s available exclusively in Japan. As the fall 2011 look book attests, the black label is always a step back from those more experimental trends. It’s dark, classic, slim cut – attributes that suit the wants of the market it serves.

Steering clear of the men’s relaxed tailoring trend, Burberry’s Black Label collection sticks to skinny pant cuts that have a modern sharpness. All the favourite outerwear classics get an interpretation: the bone trench, the toggled duffle coat, the double-breasted great coat, the quilted winter jacket. Well-interpreted classics that are sure to find popularity in the market they’re available to.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
