Despite Daniel Lee's childhood love for knights and their shining armor, his second collection for Burberry showcased a more subtle approach to metallic details. Instead of opting for the real thing, Lee cleverly 'drew' hardware elements like carabiners and chains onto the clothes, adding dashes of Burberry Blue and purple cherries to spice up the designs.
The iconic Burberry trench coat has undergone a Renaissance of its own. New designs feature lowered waistlines cinched with belts, deviating from the classic look we've all become accustomed to. The brand's signature check pattern was almost entirely absent, replaced by larger black and white checks with blue highlights here and there.
As for the accessories, boots and bags are united in style by belts with metallic buckles. Particularly noticeable are buckles shaped like horse heads on some of the bags. Footwear options also extended to open-toed sandals for evening outings and a mix between shoes and flip-flops, leaving us eager for close-up shots to scrutinize these new accessories more closely.
All in all, Daniel Lee has managed to transform and redefine Burberry's classic style elements, bringing in a sense of newness while paying homage to the brand's iconic heritage.
