After all the British Brand’s recent collections thanks to the amazing directorship of creative director Christopher Bailey, and high profile ad campaigns have done more than enough to boost this company onto our fashion radars. And of course who can forget the celebrities that always come out in force for this show.
And we’re pleased to say we weren’t disappointed.
Celebrities including Kate Hudson and Twiggy turned out for the show, labelled by Mr Bailey as the “the Burberry Cadet girls” collection.
It included a range of big aviation and military pea coats, parkers, trench coats, heavily embellished with leather, buckles and zips,which contrasted with the flimsy dresses worn underneath with thigh high boots.
Hues included olive green, brown and black. There were even a few fuscia pink numbers, as well as one or two lace blouses whose ruffles and colours gave a nod to the late 80s.
And of course, fabric du jour fur also made a huge appearance on collarless and aviation style jackets as well as calf length buckled boots.
Mr Bailey said before the show, the collection “takes aviation as a pivotal focus but then gets much more decorative. It’s a very detailed collection.”
We couldn’t agree more Mr Bailey, except to say the collection was beautiful.
