Burberry Prorsum's past few AW collections have been key inspirations to me, and after the last revolutionary collection, I was eager (to say the least) to see the results of the 2012 collection. The collection was finally revealed at LFW yesterday, ultimately being streamed live outside in Piccadilly too. Once seeing videos from the show and close-up photographs, my initial thoughts were drawn to the vibrant palette of colours- tangerines, teals, baby browns and (to me the most prominent) the ice snow whites. Designer Christopher Bailey seems to have taken a twist to this collection, by bringing a maximised femininity to the selection of garments; and of course, much like their previous collections, this line incorporates the quintessential elegance and style which only the Burberry trademark can fulfill.
In this collection Burberry steps away from the more edgy and sensual shapes which we saw in their last AW collection, and instead brings in tough fabrics with big textures, coupling them with cocoon and minimised peplum shapes. It is certainly the mix of radiant textures from this collection that indulges me: the tweed, the fur and the unmissable PVC cape shawls are what get me excited for the next AW season to begin.
I mean who would complain about the British weather if we all had a Burberry cape raincoat to hand?
And as you would've guessed from my title, today marks one year of me blogging! I struggled to believe that it had already been a year at first, and yesterday (at Somerset house LFW) when an interviewer asked me why I started blogging I couldn't seem to respond with an adequate (or articulate) answer, only being able to think of just how much I currently enjoyed blogging. With the fear of trivially overcrowding this post I have decided to include the many, many street-style-esque photographs from LFW which me and Vicki took yesterday in an upcoming post instead!
A big thank you to all the readers of this blog, your support definitely means a lot to me!
