The Russian Burda website has changed their main page, and I haven’t seen them posting any good Burda news there yet. The German website, however, has posted the first look at the April issue. It looks to be something of a mixed bag… There are definitely a few photos that excite me, though Burda’s continued love affair with crazy sauce prints does make it a bit difficult to see a lot of the style lines. I withhold judgement until I can see line drawings this month, but there is enough here that I am intrigued.
|This dress! I want one! I am loving the draped collar.
Definitely makes me more excited for this month.
|I actually rather like this dress too.
The neckline looks a bit low, but that would be easily adjustable.
|Burda is doing a good job selling me on this maxi dress.
Actually, I think the neckline detail is pretty interesting –
I might even consider making this in a shorter version.
|I like the look of the coat, but I would like to see the line drawing.
The pants… look a bit baggy in the crotch.
I also really appreciate the use of the fabrics on these pieces.
Not something I would think to wear together, but I like it.
|Is the top a top or a vest? Is the belt keeping it closed?
Definitely need more info before I make a call on this one.
I do rather like the fabric though.
|Makes me wonder if the 1930s are going to make a revival?
I would be more excited by that than all the 90s revival stuff.
|Not sure what the sewing pattern is here…
so I will have to wait for the magazine.
|Jumpsuit? It actually looks kinda classy.
Though jumpsuits aren’t really my thing…
|The top looks similar to styles we’ve gotten before.
The pants? Meh.
|Not really excited by anything here, either.|
|The Plus section isn’t nearly as impressive as it was last month.
Maybe it is the scale of the print, but I just can’t see this being flattering on anyone.
|The shirt collar makes me feel claustrophobic.|
|This trench coat is pretty sweet though.
Can’t wait to see the line drawing for this one!
|And this blouse isn’t too bad either.|
So – what do you all think? Anyone else excited by that white dress? What about the maxi? Typically I am not impressed by the April issue, but this year it might be more interesting than March. What do you all think? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
