Metallics reigned at the new Spring 2013 Burberry men show. It wasn’t just the jeans. There were shirts, cardigans, and jackets that had the illusion of either cellophane and/or even metal. The shine was not the only thing making an appearance. Custom handkerchief prints were also all over this show.
There were some really great pieces. I am obsessed with anything that looks like it is made from a scarf. The shirts would have to be my favorites, as well as the shorts. At first I was a bit iffy about the bionic looking cardigans, but the more I look at it, the more it appeals to me. The outerwear though is on a whole different level. Christopher Bailey is one that knows how to send out nothing but cool outerwear down the runways.
Here is a look at the new Burberry Fall/Winter 2012 Collection. For this season Christopher Bailey opted for more feminine silhouettes, which his designs were never anything like. When I mean feminine, I mean that these accentuate the curves this season. The looks can’t be super feminine though. Some of the looks had cargo pockets to help break up the feminine vibe.
The stripes trend carried on over from across the pond and landed on the Burberry catwalk as well. Many of the looks were belted, high-waisted, skirted, and had a ton of velvet. There was no sign of trousers this season. You can see the collection below.
Burberry have yet another amazing collection with their Pre-Fall 2012. It features their signature well tailored coats as well as jackets in new fabrics such as corduroy.
There was also my favorite pieces, the sweaters. For this season, Christopher Bailey switched out the Nordic prints from the past couple of seasons for animal graphics, like owls and dogs. Also featured are a pair of well tailored show-stopping velvet flares that will make anyone stop you and ask who they are by. I think the color palette is great. I love all of the brown tones and the standout red jacket that you can see below. Once again Burberry did not disappoint. You can see some of the looks below.
