Burberry Prorsum S/S 2013 Collection

There are certain labels that I write about every season.  These tend to be design houses that have both a strong history and a cutting edge future.  Because of its rich British history and keen eye on the future, Burberry is one such label and I am excited to share the Burberry Prorsum S/S 2013 Collection with you.

With Burberry and Christopher Bailey, you know the outerwear is going to be a treat.  And boy is it ever.  This time around the classic trench is joined capelets, voluminous coats and coatdresses that you’ll never want to take off.  Each piece makes a tremendous statement that won’t get lost in a crowd.

Another trend on the Burberry Prorsum S/S 2013 Runway was shine.  While there was definitely a variety of textures (from the raw silk to the leather) one consistent theme was the sheen that seemed to accompany most pieces.  This contributed to the feeling of elegance even in the more casual daywear pieces.

I also found the rich colors very luxe.  This was not your typical springtime palette and it definitely wasn’t drab.  Pieces were rich, often including saturated jewel tones (characteristically seen as part of the fall collections).  Seeing these tones for spring felt unexpected and in turn fresh.

Overall the collection felt simultaneously glamorous and wearable.  I would love to wear the blue top, purple pencil and gold heels to work- it would sure to be turn heards.  And okay, perhaps I wouldn’t wear the coat and swimsuit combination to the pool, but as stand alone pieces both elements are pretty fantastic.

Of course this is just my take on the Burberry Prorsum S/S 2013 Collection.  What I want hear is your thoughts!  Does this classic London label make you smile?  How would you incorporate the trends you see here?

P.S. I really love the opened-toe shoes! Did anyone else notice them?

  2. It’s the capes in every length (and the white trench coats) that I loved the most about it. There’s always something to like about a Burberry collection and the outerwear is usually the strong part. I’m not into the metallic colours, but the purple skirt outfit is definitely a show stopper, loved that one.

  3. You know I noticed those shoes. LOL
    I’m actually a fan of Burberry, as well. I’m loving the use of different textures.

  4. Burberry is all classic. Love that they are showing standards with chutzpah.

  5. I was about to name my favorite and then realized I can’t. Love it ALL!

  6. Look it those metallics (at least the last piece!)

    A very distinct style, and the shoes definitely add a bit. I really like the open toed silver shoes.

  7. If I could wear nothing but Burberry for the rest of my life I’d be a happy woman. Love their clothes! Great colors, fabulous little jackets.

  8. I love Burberry pieces….most of them. I did noticed the shoes….they are adorable.

  9. The rich colors & fabric are fantastic. I can’t wait to incorporate this into my everyday look.

  10. I’m warming up to the metallic-for-daytime trend. Such rich hues! Christopher Bailey has turned Burberry into a trend-setting label, and this collection will undoubtedly influence a lot of what we see on the high street.

  11. There show was amazing. I just watched it last night at an event at Burberry from Runway to Reality…gorge

  12. Ha ha your last comment summed up exactly what I was thinking, I love the shoes! The cut of them looks awesome with the exposed top part of the foot (can’t remember proper name for that part). I always love Burberry I think that Christopher Bailey has done a great job or turning the brand around. It really was in the gutter at one point, in the UK it was heavily associated with football hooligans and chavs (trailer park trash I guess would be US equivalent).

  13. Great colors and fabrics!



  14. Burberry never ever disappoint. I love the purple so pretty and vibrant 😉
