LFW: Burberry Prorsum Show

27 February 2012


Burberry showed their AW12 collection under the glass roof of the Kensington Gardens conservatory, specially erected for Christopher Bailey’s new collection. One of the most talked about shows in the London Fashion Week calendar, the Burberry Prorsum show brought in guests such as Anna Wintour, the gorgeous Eddie Redmayne, Burberry girl Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Will I Am, in a striking pair of yellow framed glasses and many more.

This seasons the collection was themed 'Town and Field', a tricky combination but you know what they say, opposites always find a way to attract! Outerwear was spot on as usual with bellow pockets, hourglass sartorial top coats, oversize waxed field jackets and cinched riding jackets, all shouted out the theme ‘Field’, whereas, sculptural dress shirts nipped into sharp tiered peplum skirts, shoulder bow dresses, and tiered fringed dresses, suggested ‘Town’ perfectly. Playful 'field' animals such as swallows, owls and doggies embroidered onto cashmere jumpers and over-sized t-shirts gave the collection a sense of ease. Similar to the menswear show the accessories were divine, with leather studded gloves and bags adorned with the playful animal heads, I already know which one I'm getting!! The Burberry Field Boot (a suede lace-up ankle boot, or brogue lace-up ankle boot)  I can also see being next seasons must have.

In my opinion Bailey has married these two opposites beautifully, to present a truly divine collection.

As the final model exited the runway the music was cut and silence fell over the audience, then seconds later a huge clap of thunder sounded and rain started pouring down over the outside of the glass roof (all courtesy of Burberry of course!) the models reappeared for the final walk holding college stripped umbrellas with fake rain falling down the runway.

No surprises another excellent show for this extremely exciting brand.
