It’s back to the 1930’s for Burberry’s Pre-fall (and pre-war) 2012 Collection. With updated tweed fabrics and reserved details, the king of coats is toning down last season’s collection for an English country feel. Some even think designer Christopher Bailey is trying to grab the attention of a certain member of the British royal family; the puffy sleeve dresses, slim waists, and luxe, form fitting jackets seem tailor-made for the new Duchess.
For all the attention given to the roaring 20’s recently – including Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire – it’s nice to see the equally fashionable 1930’s decade getting a bit of attention. We particular love the dark and muted colors – sage, bracken, lavender, charcoal, and pewter.
