Designer: Burberry

Burberry—Resort 2013 collection.

Recently, a friend and I had a conversation about fashion and style, and how most often our favorite pieces— that ones that remain in each of our closets season after season—tend to embody a number of traits, or benefits, if you will. There is a level of style of course, that continues to delight. But, there is also a certain element of comfort. That's not to say the pieces aren't fitted, no… the designer seems to have taken into account a woman's body and how best to fit, flatter and give where need be.















Don't you love finding pieces like that? Those reading this who are fashion designers can certainly attest to the many, many hours and considerations that go into creating garments. And taking a closer look at the pieces within Burberry's resort collection, I believe there are definitely some that fit the bill.

Showcasing a lovely selection of finely tailored jackets, gentle tops, fitted pants and pajama style shorts, the looks are saturated with a breeze of ease. As for the evening pieces, the gowns are certainly luxurious and elegant. What are your thoughts on the collection?

  1. This is a beautiful collection - the tailored pieces, the silhouettes, casual luxe elements - all very enticing. And oh so wearable which is always a bonus. As a designer, I know that sometimes the dream vision isn't necessarily the most wearable or comfortable. But these are both I think. The second last outfit is my favourite with the tailored silver/grey pants and that gorgeous bodice over jacket. In fact, I just posted about this resort collection today also (with a little illustration to go with it) :) Great minds think alike!:) xHelen

  8. Burberry is wonderful and I love how they have evolved from the ol' 'trench coat and scarf days'. That campaign with Kate Moss way back when really did mark the turning point of a company and label in decline. And look at them now. They add an edge to preppy which continues to thrill and inspire. I love all their looks - from country house to city, they are always right!

  10. I adore Burberry! This collection is beautiful, love the structure of each piece. I always love the brand's collections, although it seems to be getting a tad repetitive with their use of colors.

    1. Meera: I do agree that their colors do tend to remain similar or the same, but they are so irresistible, still :)
