Burberry Prorsum LFW show

I know the show was a while ago, but I was doing this for uni so spent a good bit of time editing it first.


Guests to the Burberry Prorsum show arrived to the show space in Hyde Park to find a large Greenhouse, which gave the sense of being in the middle of the country, while in fact being in the centre of London, and this highlighted the recurring theme of the entire show. Clothes which seem office appropriate were teamed with coats which wouldn’t be out of place in the countryside, and Flat caps.
Not only does it have country chic written all over it, the collection and the show seemed quintessentially British, just like the brand itself. The entire setting gave the event the feel of a garden party and the celebrities on the front row were extremely British, from Alexa Chung to Samantha Cameron, and Will young to Rosie-Huntington Whiteley.

The Grey and Beige were the colours of the key pieces, but everything was truly brightened up by accents in mustard and deep purple, including belts and handbags as well as the stripes on the bottom of dresses and coats. This meant that usually dull colours were left looking anything but dull!

The collection was entirely feminine with gorgeous silhouettes, and cinched in waistlines. There were lace pencil skirts with peplums hitting three trends all at once. These were teamed with cute t-shirts featuring cartoon animals on the front which paired professional looks with playful looks.

The accessories of the collection were playful as well, from the Bow belts to the floral prints, the collection is the height of femininity. The studded leather gloves and heeled shoe boots were a constant feature throughout the show and highlighted how versatile they were as they went with everything on show.

As the show ended something it suddenly started raining heavily outside, but only on the Burberry showspace, and inside the marquee fake snow started falling, the models came out carrying striped umbrellas in coordinating colours, that matched the stripes featured on some of the clothes.

The show and the clothes- brilliantly British even down to the weather.
