The colors at Burberry Prorsum's Spring 2013 show were varied enough and saturated enough to look as though Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey reached into a gum ball machine and applied what he found to all the midi-skirts and classic trenches. Likewise, the material was metallic and shiny like foil—a perfect wrapper for such a sweet treat. It's not entirely clear how the shock of colors go with the throw-back cropped capes, but as Bailey told WWD, "You need to do things that make people smile." In that case, mission accomplished. See the collection after the jump.
