Burberry Pre Fall 2016 collection focused on outerwear, lots of military references and nods to the sporting life in the form of Burberry-emblazoned cashmere sweatshirts and striped zip-front cardigans.
There was a strong focus on proportion and texture, the pieces were glammed and puffed up for everyday wear with fur, and whipping white shearling on oversize aviator jackets or on double-breasted coats. On the slimmer side, there was a sleek, belted cinnamon suede trench with a wide collar.
The military theme also touched upon the cropped jackets, dramatic capes and fitted, elongated coats with rows of shiny buttons and red contrast piping on pockets and collars.
The looks were strict, until you came upon the military pleats on glittering little dresses in floral-jacquarded lamé.
The playfulness was welcome. So was the sportiness of a tracksuit top in navy silk crepe or the little indigo jean jacket produced in heritage denim.
