Burberry’s collection for Spring/Summer 2013 during London’s Fashion Week was a mixture of the classic trench juxtaposed with short shorts and slender capes. This season’s collection—without a doubt, Burberry’s most colourful to date—was said by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey to be inspired by British fashion photographer Norman Parkinson, especially his work from the 40s and 50s. The photographer’s trademark pops of color made for a line with a rich palette, with saturated hues of fuchsia, scarlet, forest green and indigo fused with metallics. Pushing the boundaries on classic fashion, Burberry revealed their glimmering tops and delicate dresses, always with a keen eye on the female form. Highlights from the show included a metallic gold textured trench and body suits juxtaposed with voluminous short jackets and capes. Other ensembles included a short sleeve dress with a V-cut extending towards the cleavage—a unique pattern that was in keeping with Spring/Summer 2013’s emphasis on geometric design.
