~ Burberry's Visual Effect

"I've been liking things where you can't quite understand what you're looking at," said Christopher Bailey, searching for words to describe the blurry visual effect of a soft, puffy-edged, bark-textured trench over a short gauze draped dress.

Elsewhere, what appeared at first glance to be a fluffy pale jacket of tufted tulle turned out to be made of leather, minutely shaved with razors to give an "eyelash"-fine 3-D texture.


The intense level of in-house research and fabric innovation is worn lightly, creating a raft of effects here that Bailey described with adjectives like "cloudy," "seductive," and "relaxed."

The result: a lightened-up, youthful lineup of pragmatic day-to-day separates—like puffy-shouldered knits with a knot in the sleeve and pleated pants with rolled cuffs—that pays attention to delivering specialness while deflating any sense of showy luxe.

Love it! Thanks for sharing.

The colors suck you in an odd way considering there really aren't any... This reminds me of a play I saw one time, Sweeney Todd (yes now a movie) Everyone looked as though they were in a black and white movie.

Interesting comment, Rachael. I think I felt something like that a little bit when I first saw the collection. That's why I posted it.

Hahaha. I do agree that this collection is amazing, J.. But having only them in the closet, don't you think it would be a bit boring, with only one color! Sometimes you just miss the bright pieces.

Jak!!! You owe me comments about my new layout! How has the adaptation going on?

Fortunately white is my favorite color, Miss*Kimmy. I think it's the perfect color for every season. You can never go wrong with white.

Yeap. I'm also amazed at the miraculous work of Christoper Bailey, Len♥reNeverM♥re. Don't we all just love him?

I heart your blog too, simple et chic. It reflects the title so much. Following you back!

I heart your honest true-from-the-heart feedback, April. I can't help laughing. Yeah, I think there's a bit too much khaki :p
