Burberry Prorsum SS 12

If there was an award for the most innovative brand, Burberry and Christopher Bailey would definitely win it. Not only they were the first ones to live stream their show, every season they go even further and keep coming up with interesting ideas. In February they live streamed their show on the big advert screen in Piccadilly Circus and today they did a first ever Tweetwalk. What is it you ask? They posted pictures of outfits shortly before they hit the catwalk on Twitter @Burberry. And I picked some of them and here they are.
It was a star studded event and anyone who's anyone attended, including the Body model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking gorgeous in Burberry trench, Mario Testino, Emanuelle Alt, Rachel Zoe, Sienna Miller, Olivier Theysksen! to name just a few.
I remember last season the show finished with a fake snow, just the same as the menswear show previously, plus there were similarities in the design. I was interested if Bailey would do the same again and he did. Just look at the pictures above from the Burberry menswear SS 12 show and you can play spot the difference. The same wood beading is there, similar prints and so on. So it seems Christopher's menswear shows are indicator of what's coming for women.
And what came was of course amazing. Very English, very Burberry. Jewel tones are big for AW and continue into spring. Expect plum, mustard, navy, teal and more. I loved the bright trench in blue and there was another one in sort of mint green. Fabulous! There were lots or prints and stripes. As for the silouethes they are very lady like, lots of pencil skirt and I'm happy to say they keep around knee length. Oh and I must not forget the shoes! Sky-high sandals, open toe booties and wedges (my favourite).
Well done Christopher Bailey, you did it again. Another perfect collection.
Have a stylish day.
