London Fall / Winter 2011 – 2012
It was the show that got everyone talking, Burberry Prorsum. Christopher Bailey took Burberry Prorsum in a new direction with new shapes, colours and looks that he has not created for a while.
The collection was very clear and working well together with yet another new direction for the trench coat. The catwalk was held in a tent by Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens with a captivating soundtrack including Adele ‘Someone Like You’. Colours at Burberry Prorsum included orange, teal, red and olive.
Details included chunky fastenings and tall collars on trench coats. A black and white look made an appearance which complimented the previous bright colours and meant commercially there was something for everyone.
Models wore black platform high heel leather shoes with a continued influence of Spring Summer 2011 trend of wedges.The finale of Burberry Prorsum was spectacular with fake snow raining down on the catwalk. Models walked the finale in transparent macs – these are what are on everybody’s wishlist for Autumn Winter 2011-2012!
Christopher Kane’s Autumn Winter 2011 2012 collection showcased at London Fashion Week was inspired by school nostalgia from pencil cases to lollipops. The collection is to be known at the ‘liquid collection’ which is about wearable and sophisticated clothes.
The first looks included greens, browns and turquoise with pencil skirts and cardigans and the inclusive of crochet pieces. The liquid influence appeared in the form of pockets and parts of collars made from strips of plastic and waistbands emphasized with wave shaped strips of plastic. Accessories included plastic clutch bags matching the fluid plastic effects. The final looks were more transparent and delicate with softer tones being used.
