Title should read "MAY 2010" -- sorry!

I hesitate to even post this, because although the new issue contains some good things (a few VERY pretty dresses, for example), it also contains the following:

-- some very matronly dresses (especially one in particular)
-- the most extreme pair of Hammer-type pants I've ever seen
-- "karotten" pants (carrot-shaped)
-- more safari stuff
-- more baggy, shapeless stuff

But OK, here's the link. I normally find some of your "hate this issue!" reactions surprising, but in this case I'm just going to duck. (Lol, this probably means some of you will love it.):

MAY 2010 Burda Style magazine "all styles at a glance"

I was suprised you said June, because I don't recall seeing May yet, but it is actually May (05/2010) they are previewing. Off to peek.

Thanks for posting. How many months are they going to feature safari stuff? Kind of bizarre. A lot of boring clothing unfortunately.

Seriously. Maybe we should contact Burda and tell them we're sick of safari. Every issue has at least one jacket with a bajillion pockets made out of khaki fabric. UGH.

There are, as Joan pointed out, some pretty dresses, but they're interspersed with a lot of blaaaah.

Well, I was discussing this with my mother just the other day. Stapples of Burda/EU fashion: safari, white total-look, navy look (sailor pants/skirt, striped 3/4 or long-sleeve tee, red/blue/white anything, boat shoes), maxi dress, eath tones

This is going to be one of my favorite issues ever. There are certainly some things here that aren't to my taste (you've listed a number of them), but I never expect to like everything, and and there are really a lot of things that appeal to me very much.

To my taste, there are some great shorts, a couple of very pretty dresses, a really nice blouse, a pair of kids' pants (hope it comes in my son's size), and a plus shirtdress that I can see my mom really liking.

I admit that I am a little baffled each month by the "what is Burda coming to?" posts. I have forty or fifty Burdas dating back to 2002, and I don't really see a clear trend up or down. Some issues appeal to me more than others, but that is natural, since it's trying to appeal to many different tastes. As others have said, I often find that it's the patterns that I overlook, initially, that seem the best in the long run.

I also find that sometimes when I first look at the magazine I despise it completely - and then, a year later, I can't remember what I hated so much. I do think that sometimes they really are early on a trend, and that our tastes (even my 44yo taste) will catch up with time. Other times, of course, we just have to pass on a particular idea, of course. There were a few issues a couple of years back that featured so many nipples showing through sheer fabric, and so many extremely plunging necklines (even for Burda) that it quite frightened me - but the trend passed from the pages.

When I want to sew and go to my Burda shelf, I almost always manage to find a great pattern that works for what I want. So I don't mind even when there's a dry spell for a few months. :)

For sure, one issue WITHOUT safari would be nice. Oh ya and NO MORE HAMMER PANTS. Really, I am in Canada and I don't see ANYONE wearing those. Does anyone reading this from Canada (especially larger cities like Vancouver and Toronto) see people wearing those?

Some of those dresses were quite nice but if I understand from last month's discussion, this issue should be packed full of dresses. So I think this issue will disappoint many.

Still, I just might change my mind by the time this issue ACTUALLY comes out

I'll bet the editors' typical vacation habits include sailing and going on safaris.

Very nice to see you posting again, lakaribane!

I usually am, too. This time there are so many of the things most people rail about that I was pretty sure it would be everyone's least favorite. Although since I'm usually out of sync with the typical reaction, it really should have told me the opposite!

Glad you've found a lot of things you like here.
