Burberry Launches Winter Storms Capsule Collection
Do I sense Burberry going a little darker and grunge for the coming seasons? It seems Christopher Bailey is pushing the brand's beyond its classic tradition, and inject newness that makes Burberry always relevant in this day and age. Just look at his Spring Summer 2011 biker themed collections which sees the English sensibility given a hard edge spin and turned more tough and edgy.
Good news, if you cannot wait for Spring Summer 2011 to get your hands on those amazingly embellished pieces, you do not have to wait any longer.
Come Oct 6, Burberry launches a capsule collection named Winter Storms which consist of mens, womens and children's ready to wear, accessories and bags. All of which are characterised by the bold detailings of studs, zips and leather straps with predominant use of black, nickel, stormy whites and the house mega checks.
I am loving the more discretional use of studded details in this collection with the many varied pieces retaining the house's classic English sensibility while giving each item a boost in attitude. The studded trench is my favourite piece which sees the mega checks pattern on the underside of the collar and completed with studded detailing. Even the belted strap and epaulets are cleverly embellished, breathing new life to the classic trench coat Burberry is famous for.
The watches is another noteworthy offering, vintage in design while exuding a military feel and decorated with interesting nickel tone studs on the straps. The studded fringe scarf is also welcoming for any winter wardrobe, as does the most special umbrella I have ever come across... one that is lined with studs on the rim. I love it. Someone get me that umbrella, please! :-P
