Burberry has released looks at their Fall 2012 ad campaign and we have to say it’s quite different from the work we’ve seen from the British label in the past. This campaign celebrates Britishness, London and the Burberry heritage of weather protection in the most cinematic shoot to date, featuring a new cast of rising British talent – Roo Panes and Gabriella Wilde. It was shot at the iconic Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, where the new Les Miserables is currently being filmed.

Though athletic wear is the brand’s strength, their more recent offerings give us a good mix of that plus more casual offerings such as leather jackets for both men and women as well as pants, sweaters, blazers, and highly functional outerwear.
Here we have a look at Pierre Balmain, the younger line from Parisian label Balmain, and their Fall 2012 lookbook. They’ve really hit some winter essentials spot on by blending timeless designs with finer detailings of leather and warm shearling. The biker jacket stood out to us immediately as did the narrow-lapel blazers and tailored trousers. With inspiration coming from Italian and French films of the 50s and 60s, there’s a ton of authenticity, something we’ll continue to expect from Pierre Balmain for many seasons to come.
London-based designer Ozwald Boateng had an exceptional showing at last week’s London Fashion Week. Though his Fall 2012 collection is not as vibrant as we’ve seen from him in season’s past, it’s still one to keep an eye on for next winter. The warm fabrics and muted tones play well together while the cuts deliver a well-crafted lineup of goods. The Japanese-inspired aesthetics blend well with the British roots of the label and make for some must-have offerings.
