I don’t usually like to go mad with catwalk reports and designer heavy posts but when I saw Burberry's new S/S ’11 collection I felt excited. Usually Spring fills me with dread and shops fill up with florals, washed out denims and hideous browns, it’s all very pretty, but not at all very me. Then came along Christopher Bailey (now there's a man...) and turned it all around, sending model after model out in all my favourites; leathers, studs, snake and leopard print, nudes and my beloved black, with pops of colour via waist cinching belts and clutches.
Not only are they all my favourites, they are all things which I can guarantee we all have at least one of in our wardrobe from previous seasons with a little s/s 11 twist, yes?
To me this collection makes a stand against (being poor and having no money to do a big SS shop) & all the girls who insist of pretty pastels and florals as soon as Mr Sunshine shows it’s face- or as soon as Asda start selling Easter eggs. Burberry has offered us an alternative, a much needed one, as well as inspiring me to go all D.I.Y again and start studding up (watch this space).
Hurray for big CB!
