About

If you have been looking for that perfect statement skirt, look no further as this may well be it. From the 2014 Resort collection this muted gold, hammered sequin covered skirt is fantastic. Style dot com said of this collection:

"When Christopher Bailey claimed inspiration from "the inner sassiness of the girl next door" for Burberry's Resort collection, he might have been invoking the stuff of a 16-year-old boy's fantasy. Is that the Burberry woman? Well, maybe if Cara Delevingne were living next door. But otherwise, Bailey's reference points were more apposite: Audrey Hepburn for the soft tailoring, the little black dress, the beatnik/librarian vibe (Funny Face Forever) of a sweater and pencil skirt paired with a mid-heel shoe; Helmut Newton for worldly eveningwear whose racer backs cried out for Newton's broad-shouldered Teutons.

It was a funny kind of mix. Slouchy knits—an angora cardigan jacket, for instance, or a sweater that was bowed in back—had a fresh, pastel sweetness, matched by the squidgy luxury of crushable envelopes in crocodile. But posed against that were fabrics thickened by bonding and cut into substantial coats and skirts, or experiments in texture like the dress in a plongée leather washed to a papery fineness and foiled with gold. They seemed to be tipping the cap to a slightly screwy glamour, even screwier when it was expressed in cotton tees weighed down with big, shiny embellishments."

The skirt, which was Look 25 in the collection, is densely covered in tightly space, overlapped hammered sequins in two shapes. These are set in a curving rows and patterns giving the skit a fabulous 3 dimensional feel. The original price tag on this skirt was just a touch under $3000 and it was produced in limited quantities - resort collections always are produced in smaller numbers. When it was originally made available, street style super stars like Miroslava Duma (pictured) instantly snatched it up and it was wait listed worldwide. It has a classic pencil skirt silhouette and thought he sequin work adds weight, it is not at all too heavy to wear. The muted gold tones act as a neutral and it is the perfect piece to work into a wardrobe and can easily transition from day to night. Excellent condition. Never been worn and with original tags still attached
