It's not the first time that I'm in love with a Burberry collection, but yet again the skirt with diagonal ruffles, the ankle boots, the bow belts, the draped lapel jackets, and the studded clutches and gloves all stole my heart. One can undeniably see the sartorial elegance that sizzles throughout every show put up by Bailey. How is it that every time Bailey puts up a great show? Needless to say, his design aesthetics, but its also the all time favorite muses of the designer, Cara Delevingne, Arizona Muse, Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, to name a few, who filled all that warmth on the runway.
With the RTW Spring/Summer 2012 collection also, which was a medley of crochet, beading, weaving, braiding, printing, etc. the African ethnicity was so Burberry-ly displayed. Bailey blended tribalism with his designs keeping it all so British at the same time. And this was the first time that we received something this exotic from Bailey, for instance we obviously related the 2010 collection in knots to the brand despite the fact that it was also something novel, but certainly, the designer made it all look so alive, that an admirer like me would be wanting for those totes, clutches, wedges, belts, the pleated below-the-knee skirts, out there like desperately.

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up.
It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle.
When the sun comes up, you better start running.
