This season David incorporated his body hugging silhouettes with 1920s flair, waist band were dropped and use of block deco inspired colours such as bold green, tangerine, crisp white and blues incorporated in honeycomb print.
His body contoured dresses had new twist to them with outer layered sheer tunics, lateral folds interweaving in the fabric and peplum style fringing swishing at bottom of dress .
His collection I felt had concurrent theme of 1920s sport inspired luxe, tennis dresses with dropped waist line and flashes of bold colouring shadowed over his precise silhouette perfect for the summer of Wimbledon.Louise Gray
I was excited for Gray collection as I just invested in her makeup at Topshop loving the bold coloured eye shadows and lipsticks the same can be said for her SS13 season bright neon colours clashed with so many different prints, newsprint, haphazard black marker pen doodles, polka dots and Aztec inspired zig zags.
Her layering of leggings, dresses and shirts all in one print or clashing coloured print was statement and took an extra blink of the eye. Her mirrored head pieces and mirrored polka dot returned the gaze of spectator onto themselves the whole collection had light hearted feel and more is definitely more here.It had futuristic sport inspired luxury feel I thought, the metallic baseball jacket was one of my favourite items and bright socks over equally coloured brogues and one I can see being re-dashed on the high street next SS.
SS13 sees the revamped trade mark trench coat being worked in a varied display of bold, exotic colouring of fuchsias, purples, coppery lace and midnight lighted blues. It had twist of youth and fun injected into the trench.
Capes were another key aspect of collection, long avenger style outer cape and shoulder cape in different colours of whites and plastic coloured pinks over peplum corsets and tap shorts was look of glamour interlaced with wearable style.
The collection reminded true to its classicism routes of Burberry but was just lifted into the realms of fun, light hearted styling by combination of colours and use of metallic, plastic and lace all heralding a vibrant, exciting Burberry under Christopher Baileys wing.
