Burberry Prorsum show for the Autumn/Winter 2010 season was broadcast in 3D around the world. The event was highly impressive with a much bigger tent than other shows, a stormy visual and soundtrack, huge crowds and a star studded front row as well as fashion royalty like Carolina Herrera, Mario Testino and Rachel Zoe. Let us also not forget the media trinity - Alex, Hillary and Suzy (Shulman, Alexander, Menkes) taking their rightful place in front row.
Key pieces this season were double-collared, sheepskin-lined aviator jackets that were cropped to the waist or had a zipper that allowed them to be minimised as such. The black leather and snakeskin dominatrix boots were thigh-high and the trench made a mandatory appearance in indigo with gold buttons aplenty. Military theme was very strong, but since the trend this season is Soft vs Hard, has been softened with sexy lace and satin tubular dresses in a warm and comforting fall palette of pond green, raspberry and gold.
Kate Hudson made an approving "I like the bow" gesture at someone sitting opposite her in front row when navy jackets appeared bowed in the back with black satin. Perhaps Anna Wintour?
