Milan S/S 09: Burberry Prorsum

I love Christopher Bailey. He revamped the Burberry checks and made them cool again and he's just looks like such a cutie! But even that didn't stop me from being disappointed in his latest collection. It was a depressing show.
The models with their long trench coats and floppy hats almost look like those creepy nudists on the streets. The dreary colors didn't help (I thought it was supposed to be a spring/summer collection?). I could see some bits and pieces of the effortlessly chic look here and there, with the long cardigans and skinny pants (left), but the rest kind of just blended together into a muddy haze. The designs were not bad, but it was just not very interesting or inspiring. It was like there were 52 versions of the same look. Oh wait, that's not quite true. One model stuck out in particular- in addition to being drenched upon, she looked like she took an extra role in the mud.... and accidentally got dead leaves and branches stuck on her coat (right).
Oh and check out the shoes. It appears that not only do we now have peep-toe oxford shoes, but we will have peep-toe-sling-back oxford shoes very soon too! More on how I feel about these later.......As for the
color of these shoes, it is absolutely ugh, but I suppose then you wouldn't have to worry about getting it dirty from rolling in the mud!

it's interesting in an edgy way, but definitely dreary; colors remind me a little of ralph lauren's "spring" collection. as much as i dislike pastels like aqua, coral and lavender, i'm wondering if this is really an inspiring spring pallette?

Burberry, a luxury brand with distinguishing British sensibility, maintains strong international respect that resonates among a multi-national and multi-gender community around the world. Burberry is synonymous with quality, innovation and style.

I see nothing wrong with the look on the model: top, left. The floppy hat has great structure, the pants aren't the usual brown/khaki shade, the top has an interesting button design and the trench coat has the most amazing colour. Trench coats are hot anyway.

Maybe its just you, or something.

I actually really like the outfit on the left with the trench, long cardigan and ombre pants. but i do agree in that it doesn't look very much like S/S.

I thought the "point" was to sell clothes.

Those shoes are amazing! The whole laceup-slingback concept is very clever, and those heels are VICIOUS.

God I love Burberry....As for the shoes..I don't like that chunky shoe trend at all, monster heels everywhere. On those ones the colour and material is great though.

I'm a big fan of Christopher Bailey too...and a big fan of Burberry since he became the creative mind there...
But yes, I also think that this wasn't one of his best collections. Although I liked some of the dresses and some of the informal looks like the one on the left (if you forget about that thing...I think it's a necklace and the hat).
Maybe all this means that the next collection is going to be absolutely marvelous.

Also, I had so much fun reading this post...You have a great "vis comica"; this is the first time I visit your blog...and I like it a lot!!

I thought we were over dip-dyed things - especially pants.

I rather see it as quite depressing ... but the prints are nice, not the fishing hats.

The clothes were kind of uninspiring, but the shoes are absolutely fantastic.
