Milan Fashion Week just started today with the Gucci and Alberta Ferreti shows, but before that I couldn't leave out the fabulous Burberry Prorsum show in London. While designing the collection, Christopher Bailey was looking to give his garments "more soul" and break free from everything digital for a moment. Thus, the collection was hand-painted in his studio to give it, as the designer himself describes, "a welcome flavor of the domestic, the cozy, the romantic, and the very special."
I really enjoyed the light fabrics, the colorful dresses and scarves and the hand-painted patterns. Among my favorite looks were the contrasting looks with a delicate dress pared with a solid jacket or blanket throws, the first three long-sleeved dresses, the turquoise dress paired with a blue and yellow scarf and of course the delicate lace dresses towards the end of the show. Have a look for yourselves and pick your favorites!
I really liked the hand-painted floral motifs on the dresses, handbags, shoes and coats and the colorful silk scarves accompanying most of the looks.
What did you think of this collection? Do you have any favorite pieces? Would you jump on the bandwagon and accessorize with these colorful silk scarves or do you prefer a necklace or some other statement piece?
