The British Moods
Thanks to Christopher Bailey. Without him, we may see British weather as gloomy and dark, but in his hands it becomes gorgeous melancholy.
This resort 2015 collection, maybe my most favorite Burberry collection. In this series, Bailey inspired by (once again) London weather, alongside with vintage book cover that he found and British legacy.
Military accents are quite strong in this collection. Some trench coat, the signature Burberry's design come in olive and khakis with military pocket accents. Typography as the hottest next trend appears in artsy way.
Bailey also add some resort lightness with delicate British laces. Faded hues, like an ombre shades with light weight fabrics really injects coolness. But after all, the long and lean silhouette still be the most interesting in Burberry collection.
In Maison Martin Margiela world, simple is never be too simple. Their simple looks always have some twist; the artsy creations, the innovative look, or even experimental. But Margiela never leave their extra fine tailoring pieces. All jackets, coat ans tuxedo pants are just perfect.
Every single number has clean silhouette and nothing but simple cool hues. Pay attention on the details and you will find quilted raffia in bomber jacket, mohair sweater with detachable sleeves, or long leather vest which styled as skirt around waist.

Tomas Maier: Fabric Guru
Craftsmanship is the main essence of Bottega Veneta. The DNA of this luxurious Italian brand. And so (I believe) the DNA of its creative director, Tomas Meier. He is known as the outstanding designer, specially how he manipulate and manage the fabrics. I call him The Fabric Guru since the beginning.
In this Resort 2015 collection, Meier presenting (once again) some fine fabric manipulation with easy understated aesthetic to create the label luxurious signature. He start with bleaching everything to create a fade effect in his extra soft palette hues. Powdery lilac, soft pale peach and powdery icy blue are some of them. Perfect to gain coolness level in the season transition.
Look at the beautiful bomber jacket, it isn't came from two different fabrics, one of this part was faded away, and create almost like tie dyed effect. The cocktail numbers come with the same process and create an illusion on the waist.The cashmere sweaters are also get the same treatment.
Then he use a unique technique, called 'corrosion' to beautifully disappearing color from fabrics and create gorgeous one in its kind mark. You can see in the evening numbers. Some of them look like abstract painting, others like huge floral printing, but it's all hand made. And when Bottega Veneta's crew do this process, no one will look the same. Every single dress will the one and only.
Nothing are come in heavy silhouette, molded structure, nor intricate ornament. Everything are just light. Maier want to show you how beautiful the fabrics are.
