Wearable, well-tailored clothing in rich colors made up the bulk of Christopher Bailey's Resort 2013 collection for Burberry. "We played with textures and prints and wove trench references, sartorial detailing and these little hints of corsetry throughout the evening dresses, suiting and our iconic outerwear," Christopher Bailey, Burberry's chief creative officer explained. To that end, women's trousers feature paper-bag waists and pleating, and the shapes and variations on the house's functional knitwear have an updated spin. The same can be said of the men's selection, which features lightweight suits, seersucker pants, and cotton poplin shirts. But it's the color palette of the collection — which ranges from metallic gold and dusty rose for ladies to royal blue and rich olive for the boys — that give the collection a luxurious depth and feel.
Up-and-comers Gabriella Wilde and Roo Panes star in Burberry's just-released Fall 2012 ad campaign, which — with its rain-soaked streets and fog-smudged backgrounds — is a striking homage to Britain's notoriously gloomy weather.
"We wanted to play with everything that's at the heart of the Burberry world – celebrating our brand and London through imagery, film, music, weather and our iconic outerwear, all in a very poetic and British way," chief creative officer Christopher Bailey said of the images, which were photographed by Mario Testino on the campus of Greenwich's Royal Naval College. "We shot the series of cinematic, emotive black-and-white images and short films with the incredibly talented Gabriella Wilde and Roo Panes, who effortlessly bring the campaign and our collections to life across all of our platforms," Bailey explained.
While the campaign's short films won't be released until later this season, here's a peek at the Fall 2012 images.
In the chicest of sequins and stripes, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley made her Met Gala arrival in a long-sleeved Burberry gown. The supermodel stunner showed off a sophisticated brown and black color combo on her shimmering, curve-hugging confection, then offset her stripes with a pair of jeweled earrings and an exotic box clutch. We're left with one thought: does this woman ever have an off day? What do you think of her glamorous arrival?
>> To fete the opening of its new flagship store in Taipei, Taiwan, Burberry invited guests to step into a custom-built multimedia display called Burberry World Live.
"It's basically the whole concept of the brand wrapped in one experience and a big celebration of the multifaceted jewel that is Burberry," the brand's creative director Christopher Bailey told Vogue UK. "It's a celebration of Britishness all around the globe."
That celebration took place inside a cylindrical structure outside the Taipei store — which is housed in Taipei 101, the world's third largest skyscraper. British musician Tom Odell performed there live for the first time, just before the structure's video screens surrounded guests with a short film showcasing everything Burberry is famous for — models walked along backdrops wearing the brand's classic trench coats and umbrellas, the perfect defense against computer-generated rain and Fall leaves.
Burberry created a similar experience in Beijing last year when it showed its Fall 2011 collection on a holographic runway. The Burberry World Live experience will tour London, Hong Kong, and Chicago later this year. For now, take a look at a video of the experience below, and then click through to see pictures of the party in the gallery.
