Burberry Prorsum = awesome: Fall 2010

If you can forgive the lame title for a moment – for there was simply no better way to say it. Christopher Bailey has done it again.

Reinventing the Burberry Prorsum brand time and again while still keeping the signature style, Bailey manages to sex up traditional outerwear like no-one else. This time it’s by way of uber hot thigh high boots in reptile leather, and sharp yet understated military jackets; some with transformational zips that take them from long to cropped.

Shearling, sheepskin and fur factor heavily into the collection. The fur chubby is taken to new volumes, balanced out by little on the bottom half (hint: this is the best way to pull off the chubby; with skinny pants or tights, and heels. The volume on top can slim out the legs.)

Shearling also made its way into some super cool pairs of buckled boots – tall and short – that we’ll undoubtedly be seeing in magazine shoots and street style blogs alike.

On the evening side of things, dresses and skirts in bright hues were ruched and gathered and layered, in variations of silk and lace.

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.
