This was my first season at the Burberry show and I can’t imagine a better season to break into Burberry with! A tweed and canvas trench kicked off the show with a shapely skirt and oversized pockets. It set the tone for the entire show. Burberry was running an update on English countryside looks…a look which they actually helped to create so many years ago. I am at a loss for words on how to accurately describe the look that was presented. Burberry’s girl is trendy but classic, soft by structured and sexy but serene. It’s the best of all possible worlds.
Christopher Bailey threw in fabulous accents like soft and luxurious fur collars, gorgeous clutches with gold animal heads or insects and waists cinched by leather bow belts. I was in love with each and every piece, each and every and look and even the way in which it was organized on the runway. As always with Burberry, for me, it was the bags and the coats that had me wishing I was a millionaire with a closet like Anna Dello Russo’s. If this were the case I would have marched straight backstage and asked Christopher Bailey for one of everything to be delivered as soon as they could make it.
