Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2012

This Burberry show was off to an excellent start, clearly Christopher Bailey had taken note of the poor reviews in the past few seasons and actually decided to put an effort into the designs. But it wasn’t all great, the middle of the show featured a large number of prints that looked like they were stolen from Diane Von Furstenberg, put into outfits that were neither good looking, or on-brand. But overall this show was a winner, and I was a huge fan of the cropped jackets and the mid length skirts.

I love…

a fuller skirt on the traditional trench coat, that is interesting.

this fantastic cropped jacket, and the way it looks with that mid length skirt. But the hat is stupid.

I loathe…

a weird 80's look gone wrong.

    Love the striped trench but it would look horrid on a little small person like me.   my fave look here is probably the second one – but again the knee length would dwarf me.

    The hat looks absurd.
