Burberry Prorsum: If Christmas Were in February, This is What I'd Want for Christmas
I'm absolutely smitten with Christopher Bailey. It's hard to dispute the power of a designer who can turn your revulsion for all things ruched and studded into simple and complete adoration. Take this ensemble from their Spring 2008 line: the loose, flowy but structured cardigan, the studded belt (which I must have this spring), and the ruched gray silk skirt are all, individually, pieces of perfection, but the combination of the three is pure genius. His work is about the "luxury warrior" who, in typical Lara Croft fashion, kicks a**. $895 for the cardigan, $1695 for the skirt at nordstrom.com.
