Twitter was blowing up today, and that could only mean one thing: the Burberry show!
There were celebrities left right and centre who attended to watch Christopher Bailey present his spring/summer 2013 offering at Kensington Gardens, and among those sitting pretty on the front row were Dita von Teese (star struck!) Olympic gold medalist Victoria Pendleton, Andy Murray, Tali Lennox, Anna Wintour, Laura Bailey and even the loveable Harry Styles among many others.
Who: Burberry Prorsum
What: Colour crazy! A bold collection with a rich and extensive colour palette, with lots of fabric experimenting too! Sexy, sultry and sassy definitely sprang to mind when we first clapped eyes on the collection, and according to reports, that’s exactly what the main man himself said he was going for. Mission accomplished, Sir!
Highlight: Seeing the extent of the brightness of the collection when the models paraded down the runway during the finale. We thought the music was pretty special too!
To summarise: An opulent, colourful, diverse collection which is set to have celebs – and us ordinary folk – foaming at the mouth.
Who: Antonio Berardi
What: Geometric, bold, intricate, structured, defined silhouettes; this year’s Antonio Berardi girl definitely has the attitude and isn’t afraid to show it! Despite the fact that there were many sporty, less glam pieces on the runway (we’re talking about the racer-back pieces in particular) the sequin offerings more than made up for it. We adore the versatility, and Antonio’s more relaxed take on the peplum was genius!
Highlight: The pink sequin dress!
To summarise: Embellished and glittering garments mixed with geometric and structured ones for an overall versatile collection!
What: In-your-face, bold, bright, print-tastic and as a whole, a pretty loud collection that we predict the A-listers will be rocking when they’re feeling brave and want to make a huge statement and turn heads!
Highlight: The heart print pieces for sure!
To summarise: We were right when we Tweeted our predictions about the collection being bright and Barbie-tastic!
