So far, Fashion Week has been coming along swimmingly! Designers seem to be on track, and as far as I've seen, there hasn't been a major disappointment of a collection (although on a side note, Erdem did take a slightly different route this season. I don't think it was necessarily the wrong route, but in the end, it's the customer who decides). Having said that, the one standout collection has been Burberry. It was a spectacular show, but you wouldn't have realized it at first glance - as it is with many collections. Only after discovering the inspiration behind the collection, understanding the craftsmanship, and witnessing the beautiful ending (which means you can't just sift through photos!), could you have truly appreciated the collection.
Christopher Bailey titled this show Town and Field, which essentially led to a procession of looks with both urban and rural style. I'm going to focus on the women, but the men had fabulously slim pants and a delightful mix of textures too. Very country dapper! The main silhouette throughout the show was a waist cinched with a bow belt, and exaggerated peplum hips. The coat with the ruffled front was one of my favourite looks in the collection.
Watch the entire show here. Yes, it's a 23 minute video, but the ending is well worth it.
