Milan Fashion Week: For Burberry Spring 2012 Designer Christopher Bailey decided to focus on arts and crafts. The Spring 2012 Collection is a real departure for Bailey, it had a real ethnic influence – he showed plenty of sweaters with crocheting, stitching, embroidery and handblock prints.

With this collection Bailey seemed to be turning his focus back on design, instead of the immediacy of selling the collection on the internet. Burberry has been at the forefront of the digital revolution that has swept designer fashion, live streaming its shows globally with almost 7 million fans on its Facebook Page.

I wanted to celebrate the idea of craftsmanship. I love the whole digitalization of the world. But I don’t think one has to be at the expense of the other,” Bailey said backstage to Associated Press after Saturday’s preview.

There was a slight nod to technology in the show the models in the finale carried alligator iPad sleeves. But this season Burberry’s native Scotland, too, had its due. Most of the outfits were topped with a hand-crocheted raffia golfing hat, complete with a pompon. Shoes were cork soled-moccasins or easy loafers at times contrasted with woven tapestry.

There is probably no other designer in the world who perfectly captures the mood of the season than Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz. For Lanvin Fall 2010 Collection that meant projecting an image of femininity and strength. Hairstylist Guido Palau’s iconic, manga-inspired black wigs and Pat McGrath’s dark smouldering eyes gave the models a uniform sensual look.

Everything about this show was exotic, intoxicating and beautiful. Alber Elbaz told us he was making a statement about individuality, about women around the world all looking the same.  He was posing the question,  “Do you like what you see when everyone has the same look?”.
