Burberry S/S 2011: Color Pops & Reinvented Mosaic Check

Posted Nov 13, 2010

The bold and fresh colors popping up at Burberry's Spring and Summer 2011 runway show incarnate the energy and vigor of hotter months with a contemporary and sleek twist. The Burberry team also worked their creative engines to come out with a new and modern take on their signature mosaic pattern for Spring. Overall I think it's a successful collection with elements that show busy and sophisticated patterns counterbalanced with eye-catching yet elegant mono-color saturated pieces. It is not an easy task to re-touch the Check that made you famous, but in this case, it is very refreshing and well done. It helps that they decided to soften this risky proposition by keeping the shapes simple so that it doesn't overwhelm the eye...or the outfit. Even if it might not wow, it works!
