Real vs. Steal – Burberry Prorsum Shearling and Wool Jacket

by Irina on September 22, 2010

Have we talked enough about Burberry Prorsum‘s Fall 2010 collection yet? Well, I haven’t, so I guess you either roll with it or skip reading this blog until next spring. Why you wonder? Because this collection has set the biggest trends for every fast-fashion chain and there’s no way you won’t come across Burberry inspired fashion this fall and winter. All the fur-trimmed jackets, shoes, handbags, anything really… it all comes down to Burberry. The aviator theme and the army green military coats? It all started with Burberry.

Not everyone can honor trendsetter Burberry by spending a fortune on a seasonal jacket. But fear not because Free People has come up with a pretty decent Burberry alternative for less than 1/10 of the original’s price. Their bomber jacket might be a lot more tamed in design and it also lacks a few of the delicate details that make the original stand out so much, but the Burberry influences are still more than obvious here, don’t you agree?

    I was just about to ask about this jacket when I went to your website and it was on your front page! I first got inspired by the most recent H&M magazine, and found the Burberry on shopstyle. I’m absolutely in love with this jacket and would absolutely be indebted if your website found more like it for an obtainable price! Great work!

    Hello, I must say that I’m looking forward to find a cheaper version of this beautiful jacket, it is very fierce and cozy at the same time

    Congratulations for this fabulous blog, I visit it everyday and I totally enjoy it, I am from Mexico and it is great that fashion shortens distances beteween people

    Irina-
    Can we talk about Burberry Prorsum SS2011?!?!?!? OMG it was soooooo fantastic. The Trench/Motorcycle hybrid jackets are absolutely to die for. I think I am going to have to skip a meal every day from now until Spring when I can get my hands on one! Anybody here who hasn’t had a chance to check it out make sure you do. Christopher Bailey is really pushing Burberry to the front of the line of House’s who are really setting the scene in the industry. But coming back to current times, this really was a fantastic collection both commercially and critically! This jacket and the Aviator Shearling Platform boots were some of my favorites!
