burberry prorsum spring 2013 RTW


The Burberry Prorsum Spring Ready-to-Wear show full of technicolour trenches and ruched corsets really gave people a reason to watch. Christopher Bailey claimed he wanted to communicate “a very British glamour.” For him, that appeared to be reminiscent of the 1940s with tap shorts, peplums, wedge heels, slinky pencil skirts, capes and corsets. Burberry whose history is so rooted in the practical seems to be headed toward escapism. The progressively more elaborate iterations of the classic trench from purest white through ruched pink and ombréd fuchsia to coppery lace and feathers proved ever versatile. The finale featured trenches of many colors, “so intense,” said the designer, “you could wring them out.”
