Burberry always have a habit of going a bit over the top – from the return of layers of antique Nottingham lace at the S/S 2014 show to last season’s folksy prints – Burberry has never been shy and their shows ALWAYS draw the biggest celebrity crowd at London Fashion Week
However this season Burberry went all Chanel on us with their staging and set. Held in a pristine white marquee in Hyde Park, a 32-piece orchestra that filled the central pit swelled over the crowd as Alison Moyet sang to open the show.
And the crowd was certainly a star-speckled one. Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Suki Waterhouse , Cara Delevingne all sat cosied up together, while Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter, Jourdan Dunn, Paloma Faith and Tinie Tempah sat on the opposite side along with the omnipresent Anna Wintour.
On a side note , Naomi Campbell was no where to be seen, perhaps she wasn’t invited following her tardiness at the last show?
The show itself didn’t have a very “spring” feel to it and Burberry CEO and Creative Director Christopher Bailey said this was a specific choice considering only half the world in entering spring and prefers to display an fresh attitude rather than keeping with the traditional seasonal palette. Instead, we saw gold embroidered pea coats, flowing pants, flat sandals and grungy backpacks. Burberry are continued their streak of staying a little outside the box and we’re loving it.
