For the S/S 2008 Prorsum collection, Christopher Bailey opted for straightforward silhouettes in technical fabrics inspired by surfing garments and Burberry's outerwear heritage. The sporty elegance of the clothing was juxtaposed with hard-edged luxury in the form of striking metal embellishments and regimental detailing. Tim Blanks writes:
'"She's a luxury warrior. It's a bit more rock," said Christopher Bailey, laughing. "I've been listening to a lot of Deep Purple and Iron Maiden." Well, you could feel the vibe. This was the sexiest version of Burberry yet, all ruched chiffon, leather belts studded with military medallions, and stacks of chain bracelets—an accurate riff on nineties body-con dressing and the stirrings of the heavy-metal revival that's coming out of London.'

This statement bracelet is one of the most sought after accessories in Burberry's history, and sold out quickly after it became available in the brand's stores. In a strong hexagon shape, the bracelet is adorned with pairs of the season's signature medallions. Made from heavy stainless steel with a smooth and lustrous finish, it has an exaggerated, oversized shape and feels very substantial. The Burberry Prorsum logo is precisely engraved on the interior side.
An iconic and most coveted piece, this hard to find bracelet will elevate any outfit. Channel the collection's casual elegance and wear it without other adornments for maximum visual impact.
