I’m not (yet) on any list, I don’t (yet) get the fancy invitations made of amazing materials & colors, I’m not (yet) in London and so, sadly, I couldn’t attend the Fashion shows during London Fashion Week.
Today though, I was sitting at the front seat at Burberry’s. Watching it being streamed live, I felt like I was part of the buzz. And with the comments from others, I also felt as if I was sitting next to ‘the girls’ fawning all over the new collection. Well that was fun.
Well, of course, it’s not the same. But after seeing a week worth of Tweets about this show and that, it was getting depressing! And that’s not counting New York fashion week the week before, and Milan coming next.
About the collection itself? Very nice, as usual. It seems Burberry keeps on reinventing their trench, it’s their signature item (together with the checkered pattern) but somehow they always find ways to make it exciting again each year. I love their colored clutches (lime green, cyan…). Not too fond of the silver leggings. And yeah, couldn’t miss the biker jacket in all it’s shapes, fabric, colors…
The added bonus being that you can now order coats and bags from the runway… Well you can try, it might already be sold out by now.
The sun did shine today, and it suddenly felt like summer again. Watching the SS11 collection was inspiring. But I’d like the temperature to drop now because I’m really looking forward to wear my Burberry shearling aviator jacket!
