First impression? Proenza Schouler. No, I am not accusing anyone of plagarism, I just find it remarkably similar to the clutch that I’m still so obsessed over. Not an exact copy, but if I placed both the Burberry Prorsum Armour Stud Sling Bag (shown above) and Proenza Schouler clutch side by side almost anyone would assume they were the same collection. In other words, a good thing; since this just means that Mr Bailey is getting more and more sophisticated.
Another milestone I’d like to highlight here and now is the fact that you can pre-order all the runway pieces now, with delivery in 6 to 8 weeks. It is literally getting it hot off the runway, before everyone else picks them up at the store. Priced at GBP995, it also comes in Mustard besides the one in Tan shown above.
Do I love it?
And for those who have been living under a rock all this while, that’s Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts, totally rocking the Burberry Prorsum Armour Stud Sling Bag. Which brings to mind this popular saying; ‘Behind every successful man, there is a woman’.
Priced at GBP8000 (yes, I did not add in another zero by mistake), the Burberry Prorsum Alligator Sling Bag is another one of my personal favourites. Adorned with dome-shaped nail heads and a simple brass buckle clasp, it measures 39 cm by 18 cm. As with all the bags featured in this post, they all come with double straps, of which one is removable.
Another gorgeous sling bag, this time the Burberry Prorsum Plissé Python Sling Bag. For the uninitiated, the term plissé simply refers to the material being puckered, ruched or folded and in this case, this treatment is applied to the exotic python skin. Retailing for GBP1995, it comes in 3 colours; luscious Burgundy, stately Uniform Blue, and classic Tobacco (shown above).
Burberry is love. More updates to come…
