On the fourth day of LFW my first show of the day was Burberry. The flagship store on Bond Street held a small gathering to streamline the "Birds and the Bees" themed collection as it was happening. The talented Christopher Bailey always has a knack for forecasting trends each season which all the high street retailers follow and so everyone was interested to see what he had up his sleeve. The entire show was an explosion of colour. Tulle dresses were juxtaposed against denim jackets, all combined with candy floss fur bombers and sheer concertina pleats. Footwear consisted of sandals and sneakers so take note as I'm sure next season these will be continue to adorn every fashionista's feet around the world. The finale came in an array of models wearing the colourful trench coats immaculately belted with tulle at the waist. And to complete the experience all of this was set against the vocals of British musician James Bay. Once again another strong and powerful collection!
Now this was my type of show! Set in the dining room of the Rosewood London Hotel guests were served afternoon tea with delicious cakes and glasses of champagne. The collection was literally breath taking! Relaxed elegance was mixed with fun elements through details of feathers, ethereal fabrics and embellishment. My highlight was the head to toe feather ensemble above which was a major statement in itself. The colour palette was kept neutral with black accents and there were a number of beautifully crafted midi skirts, all of which I would be honoured to have hanging in my closet!
