Burberry Prorsum SS14

I have always appreciated Christopher Bailey for his unique interpretation and somewhat re-birth of Burberry in the last few years, however I’ve never personally connected with the collections up until today. This collection confirms the spring trend of what Im labelling as the ‘mid century throwback to the traditionally feminine ‘ (Ok, so not a great name, but I’ll work on that and get back to you with something a bit more punchy)

So anyway, back to Burberry… I love that in this collection, Bailey has demonstrated some restraint with his tendency to go a bit kitsch, instead opting for a more mature & relaxed direction in shapes and silhouettes, which he’s kept fresh through light spring colours, sheer flirty laces and peekaboo skirts. While not too many women will actually wear these beautiful skirts sans slip, the idea and simplicity of femininity has elevated this collection up into the fresh modern younger market. The oversized softer trench is an awesome and much needed update to the tight structured trench that Burberry is well known for, again making their bread and butter pieces accessible and more importantly desirable, to the street chic clique. The presence of some classic ideas of stripes, spots, lace and grey knits, all tied in together, not only worked exceptionally well but was also a great replacement to overly fussy prints and textures. For me, this is an unexpected simplistic favourite from London…
