spring collections: burberry prorsum, london
by Jeremy Danté
after three seasons of solidifying the respect felt towards the heritage of the burberry label, christopher bailey allows the brand to enter even further into the future. bursts of pastel contrasts came screaming down the runway amidst phenomenally progressive elements adapted to the labels signature trench coats. encapsulating trend seen in both new york & previous collections shown in london; the SS11 set hosts sleek & chic details like diamond quilted leather & shell structured coats. while coats are a major staple for the london based luxury label; a perfect culmination of classic & modern was seen in each design. animal skin coats including snakeskin coats & leopard print dresses all rattled the cage of the iconic fashion house. without a doubt, burberry continues to dominate in an upward motion throughout all of fashion. amazingly progressive use of concepts for the coats & strikingly stylish use of color & contrast. amazing, amazing, amazing. one of my all time favorite collections from burberry, incredibly inspiring. this is what fashion is all about! applause, standing ovation- all that shit.
