Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.

Milan Fashion Week | Burberry - Fall/Winter 2010/11 Runway
[Part 1 of the show]

[Part 2 of the show]

Date: January 16, 2010
Location: Milan

The Vibe for Fall 2010: All about the outerwear this season—which some would argue is Burberry at its best. Hulking, double-breasted wool overcoats fit for the Russian front, double-collared brown-leather shearlings cut for the Battle of Britain. The underpinnings are smartly simple—slim trousers, nubby ivory crewneck sweaters. And not a tie or dress shirt proper to be found. It's clear what the star is of this collection.

Backstory

Designer: Christopher Bailey
Owned By: Publicly traded
Founded: 1856, Basingstoke, England
History: Though famous for its signature red, black, and tan check, Thomas Burberry's brand was founded on function: It invented water-resistant gabardine in 1880 and later pioneered the first trenchcoat, which was modeled after officers' outerwear in World War I. The line had a major resurgence in the nineties, which has only continued under Bailey's creative stewardship.
The Look: Trad meets modern—and always very English.
