Burberry Prorsum SS13 RTW
Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-To-Wear at London Fashion Week
Before I go on and on about how amazing this collection is, I would like to point why/how I have become Burberry's biggest fan in the more recent years. It really comes down to Burberry's YouTube page (here), and the live streams of their runway shows (on their site). Each new video I get into my YouTube feed from them is an actual delight. They post lovely songs, clips on their new collections, little films of their various store openings. I feel like I always know what Burberry is up to, and I am reminded of that great, beautiful, addicting Burberry (life)style... So, when the shows come around, I'm already excited from the awesome previews I've seen on their YouTube page and I actually clear my schedule to be able to watch the live stream. Because Burberry does the best live streams - top quality, doesn't get stuck every 5 seconds, and you get some of the backstage, the arrivals, and you really do feel like you're apart of the Burberry show. I'm sure that anyone who's seen one can confirm, and to anyone who hasn't - remember this for next season. What I'm really trying to say is that I love Burberry as a brand, and I am more attracted to their clothes and stores due to how great they are in the digital world - other brands should be taking notes.
On to the collection. Let's begin with the volume in a lot of the pieces. They excite me because I already know how brilliantly these will photograph, and how great these will look in the glossy magazines. If I were a stylist, let's just say that these voluminous capes and trenches would be doing half of my work for me... Bailey outdid himself again with renewing the trench coat, and yet again I am so in awe at how beautiful a coat can be - and how lucky I am to have a Burberry beauty in my closet that I'm inspired to wear now even though it's 90° outside. I love Bailey's take on the bodysuit, which is quite sexy for the Burberry lady (but I like it!). I also love the foil shirts, pencil skirts, and satin bright colored wedge heels.
The finale: a clean final walk of models wearing pink, then purple, then burgundy, then blue, and then green hi shine trenches, while all carrying those great new colored transparent handbags - And oh! How perfect.
