Burberry Collection 2012

Trying to pick my favourite Fashion house or designer is always difficult. However when it comes to Designer, in the last few years, I have always had a fascination with Burberry and Christopher Baileys creations. When I was younger I used to immediately think of those fake 'Chavy' looking caps and wonder how this is fashion?! However, as I have grown up, subscribed to Vogue and actually seen the things they sell my opinion has somewhat changed. No, I still hate those hats. I do now appreciate the beautiful bags and clothing they sell. It all has such a timeless and luxurious quality. Although some would disagree, I always feel that Burberry is wearable and doesn't exude of costume design in the same way as the house Alexander Mcqueen. Don't get me wrong, I love those beautiful, couture style dresses but I would have nowhere to wear them even if I did have the money to buy one.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces I saw on Burberry's Facebook page, you may have already seen them but I wanted to share with those who haven't.





I love the beautiful, deep colours used. The way they almost challenge the conventions of Spring and Summer but are still reminiscent of these seasons in style. The bags in particular feel laid back, casual and new - exactly the kind of bag that will filter through to high-street fashion and will be on every woman's shoulder between the ages of 14-40. We all LOVE those bags that we can chuck all our make-up into, our sunnies, maybe a cardigan in case it gets cold and all the other strange stuff we seem to accumulate for that 'just in case moment'. Just me?

I chose this photo because it just transcends Burberry to me. It is the subtle changes in design that keep it recognisable, current and so brilliantly classic.


Thank-you for reading,

great job with that post! I absolutely enjoyed reading it and I LOVE the brown'ish fur collared coat - so fabulous!
btw, I also share your opinion about some (many) designer clothes which in my opinion are not wearable at all and I have always thought that way. this is why I like collections similar to the Burberry one shown here.
anyway, keep up the good work with your posts! :)
