Actors, models, musicians, fashionistas – the front row of the London Fashion Week – never looked more attractive than during the 2012 Burberry Autumn/Winter show. From supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to TV presenter Alexa Chung and Vogue editor, Anna Wintour; the Burberry fashion show was certainly the place to be to find out the latest in celebrity trends.
Other A-listers present at the event includes Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor, Birdsong actor Eddie Redmayne, British boxer Amir Khan, Kate Bosworth and many others.
The womenswear collection presented by the British luxury brand was all about classic English tailoring. Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey mentioned he created the line merging both city style as well as country living. Hence, there were lots of tweed caps, riding jackets, trench coats and velvet quilting.
The Daily Mail reported that Bridle leather straps, shearling parkas and quilting were evocative of the horse-riding country lifestyle of the English upper class, while cute owl drawings and appliques on some of the collection’s T-shirts and sweaters, as well as gold metal fox belt buckles, were a fun and quirky take on the “country” theme.
Shades that were mainly prevalent at the show include rich autumnal colours along with hues of burgundy, mustard and forest green.
