One of the collections that i have been most impressed with from the New York Fashion Week is Burberry’s A/W2012/2013 collection.
The styles are simple and classic with a girly twist. I have their use of ribboned belts to secure coats, this is a trend that I can really see taking on and adapted easily and affordably into the high street shops.
The colours scream autumn. The subtle greens and browns are far from garish and look sharp and classic without a lot of fuss which give a very English countryside feel to the pieces.
I can’t help but be reminded of Britain in the wartime; the large bags and coats for some reason remind me of that era and for me look really historical. “I like taking all these clichés and these very familiar things and playing with them a little bit. Because behind every cliché I think there is usually something a bit more profound.” The designer, Christopher Bailey explains this perfectly.
With Burberry being such a respectable and established brand the show attracted many famous faces such as Kate Bosworth, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and British Prime Minister’s wife Samantha Cameron the event was star-studded to say the very least.
What i like most about this collection is how adaptable it is. I can see all of the styles they show cast working perfectly on both the high street and high end brands.
