And the finale with umbrellas, fake rain (must be a first!) beating down
LFW’s Burberry’s Autumn Winter show this afternoon did not disappoint, it was held in a newly appointed glass structure in Hyde Park with only the trees overhead as our view. From where I was sitting ( 2nd row, thanks very much Burberry!) I could see every Fashion Editor from around the globe with the Grande Dame herself, Anna Wintour sitting next to Hamish Bowles on the front row. Once the music started we were all whisked away to a woodlandfantasy. Country casual was the order of the day, with deep plum, bottle green and mustard colours shown in deep velvets, cords and cashmere. Cut off Parka jackets (Alexa Chung loving these front row) frilly skirt, embellished sheepskin and long puffa jackets ( Christopher Baileys staples) were strutted out, but what stole the show was the fox and owl motifs embellished on everything from handbags, t shirts, jumpers to jackets. I loved the belts with the gold foxes heads. The finale of the show saw rain beating down on the glass house we were sitting in and all the models sauntering down the runway with umbrellas – trully origional and such a visual feast. British fashion at its best and as any wise owl would know Burberry still rules supreme.
