I, like so many others, have fallen deeply in love with Burberry’s monogram blanket poncho from their F/W ‘14 line.
A reversible blanket poncho crafted in Scotland from lambswool and cashmere. Inspired by traditional equestrian blankets, the design is jacquard-woven with a new interpretation of the classic check pattern. The poncho is finished with blanket stitch edges.
When Toronto experienced the Polar Vortex earlier this winter season, I essentially buried myself under my duvet, only popping out for essentials like hot cocoa. But if I had this little darling, I’d have more inspiration to step out…and be ever so stylish and warm doing so. At $1,400, it’s actually not too bad of an investment either.
On the collection as a whole, it’s rare and unusual that I like Burberry. This time, however, I liked the whole line. It was light, exotic and bohemian. The prints, patterns and flowing lines of the dresses was so dreamy! There was a real sense of adventure in the clothes and the colour palette was so delectable. Each of the items were obviously expertly styled, but if you take apart the looks, there’s a lot to be desired in each of the individual items. The accessories, I felt, were on point as well. The bags from this season are gorgeous! I love the elongated proportion and each of them are said to be complete on-offs! Combining different textiles is modern and the hand painted features seem whimsical. Those bags that do refer to the Burberry tartan are in non-traditional colours which I think breathes new life into the pattern.
