Reading: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
After the runway shows for Spring/Summer 2012 and Fall/Winter 2012 left me feeling like fashion was boring without Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, Burberry has given me hope that S/S 2013 is going to be fantastic! Their menswear show left me feeling pleasantly surprised and like Christopher Bailey has really stepped up his game. His choice of metallic and silk printed clothing and accessories is taking menswear in a more bold and exotic direction for me. I loved the classic suits punched up with metallic lining plus the casual wear's sheer British-ness. Even the male models were better this season than last. They looked more youthful, boyish, handsome, and upbeat than the last two seasons, where the boys looked all a bit sad eyed. I love how Bailey always thinks through every aspect of his show, especially the music. So many of my favorite musicians, I've discovered thanks to him. Also, I was so glad to see George Craig returned to his rightful seat in the front row because I was a bit disappointed to see One Night Only in the second row of the Womenswear F/W 2012 show, especially when I saw SNSD in the front row. Come on, One Night Onyl models for Burberry, so they derserve to be in the front row more than SNSD, in my opinion. One day, I hope to make it to a Burberry show. That's my life dream and Mr. Bailey, if you're reading this, please invite me and I'll do whatever I can to show my gratitude to you.
