Burberry got royally slated for its AW11 collection but personally I rather liked its beatniky 60s slant. And I like the SS12 pre-collection even more. I’m glad Christopher Bailey has moved on from the severely abbreviated dresses of the past few collections. The longer length Princess Margaret dresses are a refreshing change yet, youthfully styled here with the bold prints, wacky hats and chunky beads. (I would add flat boots or loafers with ankle socks.) I love how the girls are rocking the meanest stares ever and from the boys I would totally steal the shrunken knits, Hawaiian shirts and dark citrus colour palette.
