IN THE MOOD FOR BRIGHTS- BURBERRY
I have been a loyal follower of Christopher Bailey's work for Burberry Prorsum. I believe he is one of the fashion innovators for mens wear. I just admire his creativity of re working the classic trench. For Spring 2013, the designer went into full thrust. Bright metallics like candy foils in different color ways: green, blue, fuchsia, yellow, blue, orange, gray and more. He worked his love for metallics in shirts and trenches and slipped them onto car coats. He sent out bubble-shaped, multi-toned bomber jackets... it reminded me of the 80s. He also used bright metallics in flashy clutches, totes, and sandals.
It wasn't all about the exuberance of the clothes, he also showed tailored suits, deep navy seersucker, and nylon Prince of Wales. If you wanted to be noticed for next spring, the answer is purchasing all the show stopper collection from Burberry. Christopher Bailey delivered a rich and a strong collection for the house. Now I can say, there will always be a rainbow connection in his mind.
