Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 presentation closed London Fashion Week last night as millions of people around the world watched the live stream.
The presentation was titled “Twisted Classics” which was apt considering nearly all of the pieces featured a twisted or ruched element.
Twisted trench coats, twisted shoulders, twisted dresses, braided bodice dresses, twisted skirts, twisted shirts and even the shoes had a twisted detail.
Apart from the twisted element, every single piece in this collection was paired with a belt.
The house is known for it’s trench coats and they were shorter, sassier, sexier and more colourful than ever before.
They were fitted, twisted, ruched and the shoulders were bolder. A few were also made from duchess silk satin which were just so beautiful.
The colour palette included fruity pastel pinks, blues, lavender and peppermint, plus nude and soft grey.
I had a lot of favourites, but Chanel Iman’s blue dress was so gorgeous against her skin.
The accessories in this collection were equally lust worthy. I remember a time when the Burberry check was considered chavy, but Christopher Bailey has made it cool again.
I loved this collection. It’s a very casual collection which can be dressed up or dressed down if desired. I expect to see many hot young things wearing this collection on the red carpet.
