My Spring 2012 fashion week retrospective continues…
I have to say i’m pleasantly stunned and so inspired by what Burberry put on display in London. A fresh, eclectic departure from the norm. If you were expecting to see trench coats and the signature checks, plaids and neutral hues, well think again.
This collection was packed full of bold tribal print, crochet designs, wood and bead detailing, the accessories – bags, shoes, hats – were intricately designed and so so bright and beautiful.
I’ve put together a collage of my best picks from the beautiful collection. This is arguably my best of the Spring 2012 collections, it’s a call to break out and do something different. Christopher Bailey described the collection as ‘Joyous, upbeat, nostalgic.’ With this collection, he wanted to celebrate things that take time to do instead of delivering the status quo. Great results coming out of that thinking, it’s spectacular and beautiful.
And of course, the outer wear wasn’t completely excluded, that’s the Burberry classic, the style, cut and design was just updated. In an eclectic way.
