Look 1 from Burberry Spring-Summer 2015, Available on Burberry.com ; The Mini Bee in Hand-Painted Leather, Bright Peony, Available on Burberry.com 2,795
Now that NY Fashion Week has concluded, the who’s who of the industry have flocked to Europe for the upcoming London, Milan, and Paris shows. Burberry, the most established house in the U.K., presented its Spring 2015 collection yesterday afternoon. It was a fabulous melting pot of evening glamour and everyday ease. The opening look, a sequined pencil skirt and a tailored denim jacket trimmed with shearling. This look alone shows the exquisite idea of taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. Bright colors and whimsical, hand-painted prints graced every detail, from the runway itself to Burberry’s new mini Bee bag. This compact bag exudes ease, and its punchy, blocked colors give it a youthful spirit. However, its couture construction makes the mini bee anything, but childish. The best part is that even though this bag made its first debut yesterday, it and other pieces from the collection are already available online! Burberry, I don’t know how you do it.
