Excitement ran high at the unveiling of the latest fashion collection signed Burberry Prorsum as the brand’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, chose to take a totally different turn with his designs, pushing the brand into new terrain. Burberry Prorsum meets ‘Sex and the City’ was the impression left after watching the new spring 2013 collection signed by the British luxury brand as the designer played with both body hugging and curvy shapes, elements that were made to look bold and sexy through the use of luxury fabrics and vivacious pigments.
If you’ve been searching for something new when it comes to fashion, the spring 2013 Burberry Prorsum collection definitely packs a punch, as no more predominant nudes, no more simplicity and definitely no more Burberry signature line pattern, making it a perfect choice to consider when upgrading your wardrobe to the new trends.
Although the brand did display a large selection of tits trademark trench coats, the designs were given a little bit of a twist through the fabrics used in the creation process as well as through lovely, vibrant pigments. However, for those who are seeking timeless classicism, Christopher Bailey created some gorgeous white and nude trench coats that look flawless. While only a ‘handful’ of the designs were kept simple and chic, the majority of the designs seemed to follow the ‘corsets and capes’ theme that was all about being bold and sexy. Gone are the days of the boring pastels and nudes as the brand chose to explore the vast world of color, mixing darks and brights, metallics and monochromes, in a way that reminds us of the Gucci Spring 2011 bold color mix collection, however with a totally unique allure. A fab display of dusky deep green, orange, purple, hot pink, soft pink, burgundy, azure, gold and sapphire tones mesmerized the audience.
Apart from the obvious bold colors and Burberry Prorsum must have trench coats, the collection featured a fabulous collection of midi dresses and stylish 40s inspired pencil skirts, stylish satin shorts, the season’s definite must have, the shirt dress, shirts as well as gorgeous blouses and corsets. The satin, the lace, the silk, leather and feathers used in the creation process helped underline the luxurious style the brand is known for, making it a perfect choice if you want to invest in timeless, head-turning pieces that are unique and that ooze femininity and style. The different path the collection was stirred towards definitely came as a breath of fresh air after a heavy on darks fall season, so raid the collection and tell us if you think Christopher Bailey’s new approach to style conquered you.
