Burberry, Burberry, oh, Burberry. You know I'm sincerely obsessed with them. Their Pre-Fall 2013 collection blew me away, I said to myself "I have to blog about this. VC has to see this."
We all know Burberry produces THE best outerwear looks. If you have the budget, Burberry is wear you do your fall/winter shopping. With his outerwear, he showed us different geometric patterns, a heavy use of animal print, snakeskin textures. Bailey features a print that resembles paint splatter, very digital. Very modern. Definitely a standout piece. Leather bombers featured on both men and women in cropped, quilted, multi-colored patterns. Double textured trenches were featured (ponyhair-wool, animal print-traditional garbardine, etc.) which, correct me if I'm wrong, is a first for Bailey. A gorgeous black, belted, peplum overcoat was shown (a la Kim Kardashian). Very 90's patent leather trench coats that I was not so crazy about.
Not to be placed on the back burner, their men's suits are perfectly tailored and women's dresses fit to perfection. There is one red dress with a mesh insert that I simply cannot get over. Dresses featured a very geometric corset with a very lady-like length. The boys are given many pieces with a heart pattern. Cute. Once again, more geometric patterns come into play for the boys in the sweater department (DYING).
Overall, job well done for Christopher Bailey. Pre-Fall's job is to give us a sneak peek for the fall collection. And frankly I'm excited. Take a look at the collection yourself below.
