Heart TO HEART
Fall head over heels for Burberry Prorsum’s latest Crush.
Don’t be fooled by the pretty little hearts. The Burberry Prorsum woman this Autumn is as much spice as she is sugar. In a season where so many designers are exploring juxtaposition – boy meets girl, lightness in volume, glamour and grunge – Christopher Bailey staged one of the chicest and wittiest studies of contrast. These same cutesy hearts were printed on boy-cut briefs, worn on the runway under a see-through rubber skirt. The ’60s-tinged silhouettes looked demure, until you notice the sleek, modern PVC. Yes, you’ve seen the trench before; but have you seen it in latex? Those nice and naughty pieces find their perfect match in the new Crush bag. With this soft, squishy pouch, Bailey nails the luxurious but effortlessly nonchalant look that’s been gaining traction fast. And like the clothes, the little bag is more than meets the eye. Those sweet pop prints are offset by a heavy, fetishistic golden padlock and a drawstring pulls it closed as though full of secrets. Who needs structure and multiple compartments? This is for the woman who stays out all night, belts on a trench coat in the morning, throws her lipstick in the bag, and heads out the door. Priced at RM5,295. Burberry, 2.16 & 3.18, Pavilion KL.
