Back in the day when I had my clothing line, I was an avid consumer of Vlisco fabrics. Their Wax Hollaindais prints were a constant source of inspiration for me and I incorporated them into some of my favorite dresses and garments in the line. Since that time, Vlisco has grown and incorporated their own fashion and accessories collections. I am in love with many of their pieces, just looking at their line gives me that designer’s itch . . . . it almost hurts!!! . . . . Simply Gorgeous!!!!
The rich colors and patterns remind me of some pieces in Burberry’s recent Spring 2012 collection which I posted on back in November. The last 2 Burberry Prorsum collections have been on my wishlist since they debuted. The Spring collection is a wonderfully contemporary way to do prints . . . but I digress, yall are lucky my alarm just went off, I could’ve added another 2 paragraphs to this post!!!
Once again, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey did NOT disappoint. I am still enamored with the Spring ’12 collection and now the subsequent Fall ’12 Ready to Wear collection has me doubly inspired and desirous of many of the collection’s pieces. (I almost can not contain myself as I type this.) Studded gloves: GET ME THESE NOW!! The combination of newsboy caps (already a go-to wardrobe staple), pencil skirts (nevermind my deep-rooted unhealthy fondness for p-skirts in general), bellows pockets, tweed, and rich Fall colors like olive, ochre, chocolate and rust proved for a beautiful collection that gave off a sexy, city-girl-visits-the-country vibe. Pocket placement is questionable on some of the jackets and skirts, but, I will admit, it looks great on models with 0% body fat. However, women with curves, like myself, may not want the extra added attention to the hip area. Nevertheless, the classic tailoring and luxuriousness of the fabric choices will easily carry you through Fall ’12 and beyond. View the slideshow below for more from the collection.
Yesterday’s warm weather prompted me to post on my love of Burberry’s Spring ’12 Collection. Today I ran across these beautiful sandals from the Burberry Prorsum line on Net-a-Porter. Aaaaaaaahhhhhh. There really aren’t words to describe my feelings for this shoe. I gasped when I saw them. Maybe that’s all that needs to be said……
I am already envisioning these with one of my printed Cathexis halter gowns….. What would you wear yours with?
