There were two themes that were apparent in the front row of Burberry’s Spring 2020 show, which took place in London on Monday (September 16), along with a double helping of Naomi’s and Lily’s.
Naomi Campbell: The supermodel was the leader of the neutral team donning a Burberry look which mixed animal print, leather and suede. The colour looks so buttery against her skin. This is a look I would pick for Naomi out of all the others 9 times out 10.
Naomi Scott: Leading team black and white was Naomi Scott. If there is a slight feeling of déjà vu, that will be because the Burberry gown Naomi wore to her ‘Aladdin’ London premiere features a similar corset and draped waist combo like this look. I’m sure you’ll agree that the look worked better within trousers, than on a gown.
Lily Aldridge: Following the Bvlgari event, the model was swapped glam for city chic wearing a blazer-style dress in neutral, beige tones. Do you wish this look had been in on shade rather then two?
Lily James: The actress, who has a long history with Burberry, continues to uphold their style standard in this smart, yet relaxed three-piece look. I found the blazer really interesting as it has a detachable printed blouse collar. The red lip and the pose tells me she not to be slept on. She came to slay.
FKA twigs: I’m not surprised at all that the entertainer found a sporty, urban look for her FROW outing. Paying homage to the signature Burberry check with boyish boxers, there is something very British about this look which I found myself drawn to.
Isabeli Fontana: I’m so used to seeing the model in glamour gowns that leave little to the imagination, so this Burberry draped dress rendered her almost unrecognizable.
Jorja Smith: My immediate reaction to Jorga in this Burberry look was, wrong shoes.
Isabelle Huppert: The French actress gave the Burberry patent pumps a far more complementary outfit in this tailored, satin trimmed suit.
Joan Smalls: Punctuated with a hand-drawn illustration of a ship and excerpts from poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’, this Burberry look encapsulates British history for an utterly timeless aesthetic.
