· Fall/Winter · Burberry F/W 2013-14 BY Anita Wu / Feb 25 13 @ 10:20 AM
As one of the most anticipated events of the season and a personal favourite of mine, Christopher Bailey did us Brits proud with the unveiling of Burberry’s Fall Winter collection. Flocked with familiar faces and accentuated by the soft sounds of BRIT award winner Tom Odell and Misty Miller, the event was fully saturated in English ambience. With soft tousled hair and natural makeup adorning the infamous models, Bailey revealed a “cheeky kinkiness” (the Guardian) to the typical Burberry collection. Clean separates, slouchy knits, oversized clutches and classic trenches were updated with interesting textures and playful prints. Providing a dramatic, sensuous departure, “fetish fabrics” (Vogue Australia) of wine red rubber, thin sheathes of PVC, jaguar, giraffe and leopard print slithered onto the catwalk. Additionally, Bailey kept us pining for more, with pieces decorated in adorable emblazoned hearts, gold gilded belts, and strategic cuts that effortlessly bought the show together. Swathed in caramel browns, warm reds and monochromatic hues, Bailey’s Fall Winter collection for Burberry revealed an understated collection that would quickly be enamoured by many.
