Burberry Prorsum SS 2010 Show
Just when we thought Christopher Bailey was going to show endless variations of trench and taupe, the show blossomed with frothy pastels and shimmery metalics. Surprisingly, Burberry is yet another fashion house to show short dresses this season, which seems to be this London Fashion Week's most prominent trend. We loved the soft fabrics, roughed-up and layered on the dresses, which were in turn dressed down with short rain jackets.
We felt an air of competition between the audience and the catwalk. With the likes of Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Victoria Beckham in the front row, it was hard not to shift our focus from time to time. The models stood their ground in the end though. That may be an overstatement however, since part of the reason why the catwalk was so exciting was the presence of sky high heels that caused a couple of shaky moments here and there. Accessories were equally as mesmerizing, with over-sized bracelets, cute and clutch handbags. The whole show belted up at the waist with classic, leather, silhouette defining creations that served to enhance the mellow hues Mr. Bailey chose for this season.
