Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

Here it was the joining of the classic look with the colourful and skilled artisan embellishment touches of beads, weaves and prints.

Trench coats ranged from the full skirted - here seen in dark damson with an artisan woven raffia pompom cap, woven platform sandals, artisan beaded belt and the new Whipstitch bag in dark peacock.

brogue leathers - here in azure blue with corset belt, woven wedge peep toe boots, clutch and handstitched leather cord sunglasses.
embroidered and artisan textured - more muted tones of wheat, barley and conker, worn here with corset belt, raffia pompom cap and woven weddge sandals.
and some with hand beaded crochet collars and detailing. Here in sapphire blue with raffia pompom cap, corset belt and crochet wedge peep toe pumps

Parkas were oversized...  the foreground an artisan textured in multi colours of orange ochre, fawn rose and chocolate black and in  the background the classic khaki green. Both worn with knitted pencil skirts and woven wedge sandals.
with lattice nappa leather sleeves in asparagus green.
and cropped. Here in asparagus with full military skirt, artisan textured knit and beaded platform sandalss
Other styles were mixed fabric peplum jackets. Here with ruched knotted skirt, small clitch and woven wedge peep toe boots.
Dress silhouettes ranged from the body hugging ruched bow dress...

.. the soft pleated panel tea dresses. The colour may be described as gooseberry but you definitely won't be a goosberry in this silk crepe georgette tea dress worn with a waist belt, raffia pompom cap, Whipstitch bag in tan and beaded platform sandals.

... to the slouchy slash neck beaded crochet knit dress in rich garnet red
Skirts ranged from the full military skirt. Here seen in indigo green with a  garnet red cropped canopy parka and slouchy slash beaded silk blend crochet knit, raffia pompom cap, Whipstitch bag and woven platform sandals.

to the high waisted pencil skirt. Shown here with barely grey cropped canopy parka, clutch and woven wedge peep toe boots.
Knits included an artisan basket weave in garnet with sapphire blue stripes, worn  with handcrafted geometric wooden beads, indigo blue military skirt and large tote bag
whilst tops were embellished with geometric shapes.
It was city chic with a touch of folklore.
