LFW: Burberry AW16

Designer Focus: London Fashion Week – Burberry

Burberry showed their Autumn /Winter collection on Monday, and it undoubtedly steals the show.

As arguably one of the most anticipated shows of London Fashion Week, the show obviously had an A-list studded front row. Stars including Rosie Huntington-Whitley, Naomi Campbell, Suki Waterhouse and Alexa Chung were in attendance, kicking off the show with an entrance alongside other stars on the Burberry red carpet.

Of course the show was held within the grounds of Kensington Gardens, however the runway has begun to veer in a more curved fashion, with models striding around the crowd. A different set up to previous shows at Burberry.

As for this seasons performer, Jake Bugg was nestled amongst the crowd to play accompaniment to the collection, which had a very retro, mod feel to it, therefore Jake Bugg was the perfect choice to play.

Creative director, Christopher Bailey, said that it was “not a themed show, but all the things that I love, It’s a patchwork of different things – from Mitford sisters to military to glam rock.”

Amongst the collection there was a number of military style overcoats with either red or gold piping, sequined dresses with huge flowery prints, lots of khaki parkas and more overcoats, but in large check either a sort of burgundy colour or khaki.

As for the accessories, shoes where either in a shoe/boot style, plat formed, topped off with tassels, of studded biker style boots.  Bags were very statement, as following on from a popular trend seen back at New York Fashion Week, with belt style handles or shoulder straps, that were often matched up with belts worn over the top of trench coats.
