Light as air, free as the clouds, beautiful as the woman. This is what describes the Burberry Prorsum spring/summer 2014 collection unveiled at London Fashion Week. “I wanted it to be very gentle, very tender,” Christopher Bailey said about the line. Well, it is such, if not more. With the help of this Burberry line, the English Rose and the Nottingham lace got joint with each other and created a fabulous earthquake of incredible magnitude giving a brand new channel of flow for the world fashion trends.
Primarily, the desire for “softness” was the main aim of the designer and he found it within fluffy fabrics of cashmere and suede and later realized with the irreplaceable help of lace technique. Relaxed and loose variants of garments are also a basic descriptive detail of the line. Coming to the main shapes of the garments, we can state that any kind of tension is absolutely excluded. All the pieces are created with a soothing and tranquil mood. There are coats and coatdresses, pencil skirts and jackets, but none of these has a single sharpening detail on.
Transparency plays a main role in the Burberry Prorsum spring/summer 2014 collection, represented by sumptuous and cute-looking lace. Some pieces are created with the help of nice draping, which add an extra proportion of charm to the line.
In reference to the smallest details of the collection, we should talk about the cute handbags of various sweet pastel color interpretations, matching with awesome pairs of shoes, as well as the awe-inspiring scarf combinations. Finally, we certainly can’t leave out the luxurious rosettes used on the belts and as chic ornaments as well. This is what the English rose looks like nowadays!
Coming back to shapes, we should also mention about the deep curves and openings of the pieces, which seem to be bald and bold simultaneously. Finishing up with colors, we see the evident color palette of calm and peaceful pastels without a single worry about the hurrying and worrying world outside.
