Burberry Prorsum Resort 2011

First of all, I hope everyone had an enjoyable long weekend (I'm not sure which countries had a long weekend, but here in Canada we celebrated Victoria Day on Monday). Mine was good for the most part, with horseback riding, visiting my brother who I haven't seen in months and hanging out with friends. Unfortunately, it ended unpleasantly with a trip to the emergeny room (my bf broke his foot playing frisbee). Hope everyone's weekend was lovely (and perhaps a bit less eventful than mine).

Second, I wanted to talk about the Burberry Prorsum resort 2011 collection. I'm a big fan of Burberry Prorsum (what can I say, I love trenches). There were some absolutely gorgeous pieces shown in the resort collection, including dresses, tops and coats. However, my only complaint was that it didn't feel very 'resort' to me. Resort is something I feel should be perfect for wearing on holiday, but these pieces would feel more an home in my fall wardrobe. What do you think? Are seasons just words used to organized collections or should a collection be designed with a season and/or destination in mind? (Photos from style.com)

I COMPLETELY agree. This collection is too dark and heavy for resort; when I think resort, I imagine the bright and airy vibe of say, Chanel's 2011 resort. Plus, it's so hot right now that the thought of a fur coat gives me physical pain.

so sorry to hear about your BF...hope this isn't taking a toll on you too. Its not easy when a BF is out of commisson.

Actually, Memorial Day is coming up here in the states..but I'll be working most of it.

Burberry..seems a bit stiff to me in this collection. I thought Emma Watson was going to be modeling for them. I guess I was expecting more from them. Maybe they need more plaid. black and pink would be cool.

Burberry is the best by the way!

I agree with you too - this collection seemed more suited for pre-fall racks and not resort wear.

I'm so sorry to hear about your boyfriend. I'm glad most of the weekend was fun!
