This time no rain on the runway of Burberry Prorsum for the upcoming Spring-Summer 2013 men’s fashion.
A proposal that, following the same line as other seasons, will come with a sharp autumn air, but this time peppered with a wide range of neon colors preponderance of metallic finishes. Without doubt one of the big names in the British House par excellence.
Moments before the show starts, the shutters of the dome of the Serbelloni Palace opened leaving Milanese Sun's bright rays, an omen that gave us clues to the radiant glow of this collection.
Fall with touches of chromaticism neon / metal
Christopher Bailey - creative director and executive - has done it again and has been the blessing by critics and public with a collection of elegant, sophisticated and very modern, which nevertheless lost the essence of this signature of the company.
For the tonal scale of the collection was inspired by the work of artist David Hockne, while colorful prints graphics that dot several pieces of the collection (including handbags and accessories) has been taken as regards the work of painter and designer fabrics Duncan Grant , hence has taken as a reference to marked pictorial accent of many pieces.
A color palette that could have been a collection of autumn (khaki, various shades of gray, stone, brown, marine ...), if not for accents in bright colors (Orange, yellow, magenta), or other neutral tones as oil blue, bottle green, salmon pink, purple, or the Bordeaux, although that itself almost always in metallic finishes.
And is that many of the garments directly from the collection have been presented with this type of satin finishes. This has been used to different fabrics, so for example, we see shirts or trousers in satin silk metal finish, and trenches waterproof nylon or outerwear as the bombers also leather finishes that bright. The accessories are not immune to this fever for metal finishing, and find from sandals to bags in strips in plates nothing rigid.
Speaking of fabrics, we cannot fail to mention the gorgeous summer tweed suits and wool mohair, the parkas in cotton canvas, or the occasional piece of ribbed cashmere item as a Navy jersey with neck boat, for example.
As for silhouettes triumphs the slim cut, suits with pants with high waist, slightly shortened from the length and side clips.
And the American with flaps smaller than usual, and in some cases - as we see with the Crusades - almost without leaving space between a row of buttons over and over, thereby creating an optical effect that the overall picture is much more styled set.
Most outfits - with the exception of the summer; shorts combined with short sleeve shirts, many of them stretched to the purest style camisole - complete with stunning outerwear, without a doubt, the jewels of this collection. From raincoats, to a kind of sporting trench coats (short), coats in classic cuts, to the already mentioned bomber, of desire where they exist
Almost all with a common link, sober cut slightly carved that contrasts with the narrower silhouette, which as we know, is Bailey's favorite cut.
