Christopher Bailey presented the Burberry Prorsum collection on Saturday 23rd of June in Milan, The elegance and the heritage of the brand are mixed and mingled with avant-guarde outfits inspired by the 80’s.
A lot of prints and colors have been used on this Italian catwalk show; the trenches are unmisseable and rule the runway once again. This time around they get a little metallic make over (Yes, You’ve heard that! The color palette of the metallic colors range from Gold, Metallic Pink and Blue, to Red/Copper and Yellow). Very smart and sleek the idea of using tuxedos and suits mixed with colorful bombers (some of them are Bi-color).
Remarkable are the accessories: the sandals (In bright metallic colors that can match the trench coats), the sunglasses, the handbags in both burberry-style and crocodile-skin, and the crocodile-skin ipad cases…of course all coated in bright and metallic colors!
So that was Bailey’s visual for the next Spring/Summer season, Will his metallic moment affect many people next year? or will it stay between the fashionistas?
I certainly enjoyed the splash of colors and brightness of his collection, especially the print-shirts, the sandals (which I absolutely approve with a pair of smart black socks on, they add that special touch that would be totally different without them on) and I’M IN LOVE with the sunglasses! I’m definetely getting a pair of those bad boys.
