SouthPaw: Burberry Prorsum's Bowler Bag. Plus: Edna or Elsa?
I was surprised, then, to find myself admiring a pair of Burberry boots that were, at first glimpse, check-less, till I took a closer look. I gazed upon these boots again and again, online, finally braving the crowds to try one on chez Nordstrom (my size was not in stock, though I gamely attempted to fold my 39 foot into a 37).
But I do like the subleties of the plaid here; it does not overwhelm or scream "Logo!" It simply, quietly, complements.
The same might be said for Burberry Prorsum's Fall 2014 bowler bag, with its Southwest details (far above). The check is less golden and more in the traditional camel/red/black/white, but it goes almost unnoticed due to the blanket details.
(Another version, sans check, is below. This Burberry Prorsum I've renamed "Bloomsbury, Possums," which is to be uttered a la Dame Edna Everage.)
And as I open this post with a question, I'll end with one: Are these sunnies Edna or Elsa? Answer, please. Or Else.
