"Streetwear" isn't often a word that's associated with British heritage brand Burberry, but it's impossible to deny its influence on the label's pre-fall collection. From boxy shearling aviator jackets to overized puffers and army parkas, the outerwear smartly mixes Burberry's timeless aesthetic with shapes that are very "now." (There's even a sporty branded sweatshirt!)

The capes and ponchos that have become the label's street style go-tos are back in a big way as well, and the standouts this time around are a fringed, blanket-like knit option and a structured cape with a fur collar. If you're a fan of the enduring '70s trend, Christopher Bailey has you covered there, too, with flared trousers, suede coats, retro, sporty stripes running down pant legs and on polos, and one rock star-worthy fur.
