Burberry Prorsum RTW Spring 2013 London Fashion Week
It was that curved “Cristobal Balenciaga” shape that really stood out in this collection. Starting with the first exit of a cocooning cloak that almost completely hid a micro pleated metallic swimsuit to the plastic orange mini rain slicker cape and a number of cropped bomber-esque jackets; the style gave the show a structural freedom.
This focus on volume continued onto more trench coats and jackets, with huge bell sleeves that then worked to mimic the shape of full skirts below. They were worn with thin wedges, scalloped all the way up the foot and again in bright, bright flashes of colour.
There were pencil skirts in azure and fishtail hems to show off and amplify plenty of cocktail frocks, of which this collection came plentifully stocked. As it did micro knickers and super-cropped bomber jackets.
