The Burberry Spring 2010 "April Showers" Collection = Sun Shower Fresh!

"Burberry re-imagines their trenchcoats and jackets for the change of weather. Their “April Showers” collection for Spring 2010 features new colorways on their classic cuts. While the trenches are in focus right now, the stow away jackets have caught our eye. Their simple front finish and packability make them appealing for those days when weather changes like girlfriends."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: It never ceases to amuse and amaze my delicate senses how often the tour bus of fashion finds itself circling temporary trends, only to responsibly return to the steadfast style depot when all is said and done.

Season after predictable season, black makes a triumphant come back (NOTE: Only after the proclamation of another popular pigment as the "new black" has run it's course ... lol), hem lines rise, neck lines plunge and edgy design impresarios decide that it is once again time to revisit the curated aesthetics of classic style. True arbiters of flyness never stray far from gilded staples of enduring taste, but, still, it's nice to see - if simply for a stitch in time - the rest of the world catch up with us. Apparently, for Spring and Summer 2010, sensibly chic is in with many famous fashion houses showcasing crisp and clean offerings. Case In Point: The Burberry Spring 2010 "April Showers" Collection.

After the ruthless rape of Burberry's signature "Nova Check" tartan print by vapid Trendoids, the label fell out of favor with many and was exiled to Siberia, however, for those of us in the know, this British bastion of luxury never lost a step. The brilliant Spring 2010 "April Showers" Collection comes as the Burberry brand experiences a resurgence amongst fickle fashionistas with a couple bucks to spend and looks to capitalize on it's retrieved adoration.

British designer of the year, Christopher Bailey, gives characteristic trenchcoats, stow away jackets, polo shirts and accessories charismatic splashes of bold color that add contemporary edge to standard elegance. Now, THIS is how Y.O.U. "fix up and look sharp!" Good shit!
