This Spring 2011, it's full-on Mods vs. Rockers at Burberry.
The title of the collection was "Heritage Biker", taking Thomas Burberry´s designs for England's first motorbike riders in the early 1900s as the starting point. Classic features were also given a tougher, sexier edge by using leather, python, tiger prints and zip fastenings to transform the jackets into a fit for a biker babe. All the clothes came in colours like tiered spearmint, pale pink and royal purple satin as well as leopard-print silk georgette. Long patent leather bags added shots of citrus yellow, mint green, red, lime and turquoise while the shoes had fierce spike heels that caused several models to take off their shoes and one to tumble. It was all about contrasts.
With a certain grace in movement and cut, Burberry’s women took yet another step ahead in a wardrobe that echoed both moments of modern sophistication and spontaneity. And this all with a definite nod to glam rock!
Enjoy the snapshots!
