Focus: Burda Style Issue 12/2020 - Black & White

Ebony and ivory form a timeless duo this winter reason, creating an unforgettable look that has continued to reign throughout the years. Always elegant, the partnership is versatile in style and rocks urban chic just as much as evening sophistication. This modernized style hails from casual cuts dressed up with graphic-style patterns and glam rock accessories.

Dress 102B and Blouse 101B

Robe 102B et blouse 101B


The classic, feminine cut of this dress is paired with a stark black textile to highlight particularly innovative elements such as the big sleeves and large box pleats along the skirt. The silk blouse with delicate pattern to the right is a mixture of nobility and punk when paired with dark jeans and combat boots! The smocked high collar and large sleeves that taper in at the cuff and elbow are the epitome of sophistication and make this model one that cannot be beat!

Jacket 108B and Dress 103B

Veste 108B et robe 103B


Comfy, cozy wool decorated with large white squares is the base of this straight-cut jacket which boasts a large shawl collar and front pockets with exquisite piping. It ties at the waist to give off a casual air. The long polka dot dress is our favorite form of retro inspiration thanks to its high collar, binding at the waist, and delicate gigot sleeves. Piping around these details adds that final touch of class.

Skirt 105B and Slim-Fit Trousers 114

Jupe 105B et slim 114


This marvelous pencil skirt in houndstooth pattern is the crowning jewel of the world of fashion. And to make it even more special, we've decorated it with a large bow tie at the front. But if you prefer pants, why not try the slim-fit trousers with technical textile? This daring model pairs the elegance of houndstooth with the sportiness of the side stripe for a silhouette that is long and lovely. The Lycra fabric makes these pants ultra-comfortable, and the topstitched pleat holds everything in place.

Shirt Jacket 117 and Pants 119B

Veste chemise 117 et pantalon 119B


This lumberjack shirt jacket is for city slickers! A polished glen plaid decorates the noble fabric for a look that is urban sophistication. The cut stays true to the original, with a fitted yoke around the armscye. And the model to the right is a basic and a must: the wide-leg 7/8 length pants with elastic waist and large cuff go with anything to ensure a look that’s both fresh and timeless.
