London Fashion Week is kicking ass (again)! I just saw Mary Katrantzou and it's a massive improvement to her SS 11 collection! But let's talk about Burberry Prorsum today and I'll review Mary Kantrantzou Tomorrow.
Christopher Bailey showed his AW collection on monday and the focus was the "least favorite part of most women’s anatomy" says Suzy Mankes from 'The New York Times'. Next to that she is asking a very interesting question: "Could umbrellas be the new handbags?". They actually could! We've seen them already in the mensshow one month ago. But I doubt that one brand has such a big influence to make an umbrella the new "it"-accessory!
The Collection focused on a sophisticated city-style with a twist of town and field elements, such as field jackets, heavy wool fabrics, animal prints, gilded fox heads as clasps on handbags and handles of umbrellas. It also seams to me, that Christopher loves belts! Almost every style was belted!
My favorite Part is the second section of the collection, which starts with the second song called "Walls" by Rae Morris!!
Enjoy the show!
