A stellar front row, indoor snow, the most prestigious venue in London town and a collection we want right now - what was not to love at Burberry's autumn/winter 2011 collection at London Fashion Week?
A stellar front row, indoor snow, the most prestigious venue in London town and a collection we all want right now - what was not to love at Burberry's autumn/winter 2011 collection at London Fashion Week?
The Burberry Prorsum show attracted a full house with Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Mario Testino, Alex Chung, Lily Donaldson and Anna Wintour squeezing onto the front row - all wearing Burberry, of course.
New face of the label, Jourdan Dunn opened the show in a striking tangerine sculpted coat and a dalmation fur hat before changing to a second outfit - a yellow and teal checked short trench and the skinny black flares that soon became the eponymous bottom half for Burberry A/W'11.
Burberry's creative director Christopher Bailey called this season his 'Shrimpton Collection' after the model and actress Jean Shrimpton and you can see the swinging 60s influence with nipped-in waists, glamorous fur accents and skin-tight flares.
Aside from the odd piece in clay and a magnificent moss-coloured tweed fitted suit, Bailey's latest collection was dominated by primary colours and graphic checks in tweed, wool and chunky knits - giving the sense of a very British heritage with a modern spin.
To a soundtrack of Adele's new track, Someone Like You, models sashayed down the runway with a louche elegance, culminating in a finale of bright lights, raptuous applause and simulated snow - all within the confines of the Kensington Gardens marquee.
A Burberry show is never just a catwalk presentation, it's an experience. And Bailey's collection for A/W'11 was no exception.
Burberry Prorsum's must-haves for A/W'11 - Skinny black flares - Dalmation-fur hat - A trench (naturally) - Fur-trim sleeves - Cable knit jumper
