Most Worn 2014 – Burberry Prorsum’s Colour-Block Check Blanket Poncho

Most Worn 2014 – Burberry Prorsum's Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho

Louis Vuitton may have been the most worn label of 2014, but it was British brand Burberry Prorsum that received the high honour of most worn item with a colour-block, check blanket poncho that quickly made waves with its autumnal hues and monogrammed initials.

Extra-popular among the model set, the personalized wrap had way more than 15 minutes of fame with catwalkers like Cara Jocelyn Delevingne taking her CJD rendition straight from runway to sidewalk.

Further upping our desire for the piece, fellow models Suki Waterhouse, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexis Chung all looked equally cool in theirs. Even Sienna Miller managed to dress up her sweats and sneakers with the boost of Burberry. Yet it was Olivia Palermo who took the poncho to the next level, throwing it over a checquered blouse, tailored shorts and thigh-high boots for an impossibly chic effect.

It was the ultimate off-duty look. Don’t we all want our initials on a Burberry blanket shawl now?

Suki Waterhouse In Burberry Prorsum – The Burberry Beauty Box Event

Suki Waterhouse In Burberry Prorsum - The Burberry Beauty Box Event

Suki Waterhouse attended a promotional event for the Burberry Beauty Box held at the COEX Mall on Thursday (December 18) in Seoul, South Korea.

The British model wore a lime- and olive-green tulle T-shirt dress from Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2015 collection.

The frothy frock with an uber-cool vibe was paired with green and white sneakers from the same collection.

This collection was all about luxurious pieces paired with relaxed footwear – sneakers and Jesus sandals – but does it work off the runway?

Even with Suki’s playful personality it doesn’t quite work for me on this occasion. I think Cara Delevingne would’ve sold this look to me.

Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn for Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2015

Burberry Spring_Summer 2015 Campaign - on embargo until 14 December 10pm GMT

Burberry unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign starring British icons Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn, which was shot by Mario Testino in London.

Aside from the burst of colours and the joyous mood of the campaign, which celebrates the collection’s bright book cover designs and hand-painted pieces, I’m delighted to see two generations of British supermodels gracing the campaign and looking better than ever.

Naomi Campbell re-joins the Burberry cast for the first time since her Burberry campaign back in 2001, whereas this is the fourth for Jourdan Dunn.
When I saw this campaign, it suddenly explained the recent run of Burberry dresses Naomi has been wearing on the red carpet.

Always marrying fashion and music, George Barnett, the ‘These New Puritans’ drummer who is the current face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance campaign, and George Le Page, the drummer of the band ‘Of Empires’, who opened and closed the Burberry Prorsum Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 show, featured in separate images for the campaign.

Customers can shop for the Burberry trench coat collection in stores globally and on Burberry.com from today, with the full Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 collections available globally from 5 January 2015.

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.
