Burberry Prorsum, Ikat shirt
Burberry Ikat print shirt available at Mr Porter
Burberry’s spring summer 12 show departed from the very london-centric look it pursued in recent seasons. Instead, sharp ikat’s (seen above) and colourful batik inspired prints appeared on shirting and trousers, while handicraft-style blocks adorned t shirts.
The fabric choices instantly create a yearning for a long tropical getaway, as 100% linen suiting and linen mix trousers complimented the worked-in raffia segments on coat collars, shirts and accessories.
I look forward to breaking from monochrome tradition this summer and going for maximum island-inspired impact. Prints, beware!
