Ooh la la. I think I want every single piece in this collection... And I think I want them NOW.
A couple of days ago, Burberry Prorsum summoned fashion's elite to Kensington Gardens to showcase their punchy and beautiful S/S 13 collection, and what a collection it was.
The show itself was totally star-studded. Andy Murray sat with his (stupidly gorgeous) girlfriend Kim Sears on one side, and Anna Wintour on the other. Twitter exploded with "#Burberry"as this glossy audience waited, anticipating Christopher Bailey's next move.
Burberry is a British institution, and a brand that is truly unrivalled in the current fashion industry. Burberry is tech-savvy, financially sound and, on top of it all, seriously cool. The models that strutted down the catwalk read like a "Who's Who?" of the year's it girls. Cara Delevingne has been the face of LFW, and who discovered her? Christopher Bailey, of course!
Oh, and the collection wasn't bad either. While trench coats were prevalent as ever, they were refreshingly bold in ombre jewel tones and Quality Street metallics. Glamourous metals complemented the rich shades of forest green, lush purple and icy ivory while the accessories were truly scrumptious.
My only niggle? Why so many big knickers?! Come on Christopher, be nice.
What did you make of Burberry Prorsum?
