Julius breaks the boundaries between the masculine and the feminine, with leather bras alongside cargo pants and trench coats.
His collection seemed to investigate the boundaries of the feminine and the masculine – a question that he answered by creating a hybrid body, both effeminate and aggressively male. He did so by transferring archetypical elements from the female wardrobe into men’s lingo: leather bras and skirts, alongside army boots and leather trench coats. One notable look consisted of a black maxi-skirt with a large frontal slit, worn with a calfskin bra, necklace and arm bands – all worn by a transvestite, hotter-than-Kate, long-haired model. The collection in a nutshell? Dystopian, fearless, hermaphrodite. (via dazeddigital.com)

- Burberry for me is a taste I acquired as I have aged gracefully (shush), kind of like brussels sprouts. I wouldn’t touch them and had a disdained dislike for them when I was younger, but now I really enjoy quality, organically grown brussels sprouts and appreciate their distinct flavor, much like the collection of Burberry.

- Taking a distinct 60s direction in the design approach, the collection features lots of oversized work wear trench coats, oversized double breasted heritage trench coats, fishtail and storm parkas and a special range of knitwear. Patterns are not only placed on jackets and knitwear, but also on shirts and even the eye catching range of cork soled moccasins. Hand crafted natural wood toggles, weathered metal buttons and natural horn buttons make an appearance as well, only adding to the detailed range presented for next season. The color range is also very special, and is in line with the 60s look and inspiration. (via Selectism)
