Arguably his best collection yet, Christopher Bailey stunned at the Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2011 Womenswear show yesterday. The polished collection, whose line of celebrity followers were out in force, has been named ‘Shrimpton’ after swinging Brit model and fashion icon Jean Shrimpton.
The collection which was paraded down a snow filled catwalk, consisted of sculptures silhouettes, volumised outerwear in English heritage tweeds, oversized crop cape jackets in hand woven high wool twists, flat front cropped trousers and window cut out dresses with engineered stitching. Detail was key and focs was on cables, leather buttons, leather rope martingales, gathered back pleats, luggage stitching and multi tiered cuffs and so much more!
It seems the celebs took to the iconic Burberry trenchcoat too for the show! His timeless pieces seem to be endless, season after season failing to impress, it doesn’t surprise me he returns with another fabulous collection for AW11.
The show ended with the army of wellie-clad models strutting their stylish selves down the runway. Now if that isn’t entertainment…
And the music: Someone Like You: Adele, You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me, and You Don’t Own Me, Dusty Springfield, It’s A Har dLife, Roger Daltry.
What a show. LLLB
