London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010 Pt1 - THE British: Pringle of Scotland, Paul Smith, Jaeger London & Burberry Prorsum

Thank you all for your lovely comments in my previous post!

I have barely caught my breath from NYFW, and London Fashion Week is already well underway...thought I'd start with my favourites of the very quintessentially British designers/labels:

Pringle of Scotland

Clare Waight Keller continues to do wonders at Pringle of Scotland, keeping it cool and relevant yet still classic; including huge slouchy pants with deep, standout pockets (based on fishermen's waders) worn with skinny tops...

Paul Smith

Bold colours, beautiful tailoring and nice full skirts, loved the 3rd & 4th outfits below:

Jaeger London

This label celebrated its 125th birthday this year, and is supposed to stand for female-friendly, practical, Anglo-centric cool clothes. It sure does...

Burberry Prorsum

Saved the best for last. Most people loved the shearling jackets shown by Christopher Bailey for this collection, my favourite pieces were the navy wool jackets and coats with wide lapels and big brass buttons...gorgeous! Also loved the ankle shearling buckle booties, really want to get my hands on those!

  1. The Burberry so good - LOVE the navy jackets and the thigh high boots


  2. I think you are the first blogger to mention the Pringle collection. I am SO GLAD you did! It's one of those brands I feel sentimentally attached to & this collection seems very interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Happy thursday, Brigadeiro.

    Can´t tell you how much I loooove these Burberry shearling jackets and coats! Did you see they are available as a preorder (last order day tomorrow) and it seems the jackets will be on the way to you already in April... crazy... wear Fall 2010 pieces already in spring...

    Awhh... wish so much to get one of these ... ;)

    Have a beautiful day!!!

  4. Love the outfits here!those boots are gorgeous!!

  5. I haven't seen the Paul Smith! Fabulous florals/patterns.

  6. B!

    Love love love,



  8. Those military inspired jackets are fab!

  9. oomg! i love allt those looks <3

  10. How I love Burberry! Pringle offered a few cool jackets too.

  11. The Burberry show was R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D.

  12. I like the shorter sheraling jackets way more than the one's with long shearling fur... This collection was so much better than the Spring Summer 2010 - and I agree with you - not so crazy about the shearling - but eeeeeeeven more crazy about the amazing navy wool jackets! The cut is marvellous! Also the short shearling booties are too cool!
