Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012
There are a lot of things I love about Burberry even before I get to talk about the actual clothes and accessories. I adore Christopher Bailey for being so incredibly talented and charming and actually taking his time to twit personally just about an hour before the show no matter how crazy busy it must have been for him, for making a small video for all of us anxiously waiting before our PC screens and, of course, streaming the show live later and twitting a photo of every look before it hit the runway.

Again it was the highlight of the London Fashion Week for me. The collection was perfect, yet again, from head to toe, from the stripy raffia hats to the most gorgeous sky-high booties, sandals and wedges, especially those, in delicious toffee-coloured leather, woven and decorated with wooden beads and, of course, incredible skirts, pleated dresses, trenches and parkas in between. I loved the tribal and batik prints, leather and raffia details and rich colour palette.

With his new Spring collection Christopher Bailey gave us coquettish dresses, printed pencil skirts, sweet tops and dresses draped around the body and decorated with most adorable bow details. He also kept in mind the fact that good old British summer isn’t so much about floating around in barely there silks, but requires some wardrobe substance to protect our pale selves from the rain and temperamental weather. As a result knitwear, classic trenches and cropped parkas, from beautifully simple to most elaborate works of art completed this yet again gorgeous collection.

  10. I am sure that the hats were for you, British people! And I say that because this years I though I made a good choice deciding to visit London in May! I am a temperature freak :P! But I found out that May can be cold, very cold ;) I love the over the knee dresses and skirt that underline the waist and together with those wedges are a magnificent outfit!

  13. I know how cliche this will sound but I will always always dream about owning a Burberry trench coat. So beautiful and I love the injection of colour (generally when I think of Burberry I remember classic neutrals and patterning)

  16. I loved this collection and you described it beutifully. I have a huge admiration for Christopher Bailey and for what he did to tranform Burberry into a label that is not just about classic pieces, as he manages to propose something completely new and different each season. Loved the colours and the textures, and the clothes will be perfect for the Belgian summer...

  20. It's one of my fave brands as well, and has been for years. I only have 3 or 4 pieces myself though. Looks like this could be a good season to get some more!
