Sandy Dunes, Dusty Blues

It was all about Barbour back at the start of the year, but Burberry Prorsum's recent parkas couldn't get any more epic and impressive. They look like a designer stumbled into the shire, dismantled a tangled tent and tassled it into a jacket. You don't even need a fur embellished collar to create the momentous appeal, as the sharpness of the red parka daggers around the neck like Henry 8th in a futuristic era. The kaleidoscope owl eye prints underneath also modernise the countryside reflection, and the classic blue jeans are given a skinny revamp to an amazing standard. My parka might not be at the sharp end of the scale like this, but it certainly takes inspiration from the farmers. It has a 'falling apart' effect, with crinkled gritty draping and pockets piecing together the jacket. With a slouched hood for the urban-ites, and a sandy brown for the bohemians, it manages to be a parka that puts itself in the middle of the wheel of fortune for all styles and tastes.
