London Fashion Week closed with a lot of glamour yesterday thanks to Burberry Prorsum‘s Spring 2010 show. What made it a big spectacular? There was the 1,300+ guests which included Emma Watson, Liv Tyler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary-Kate Olsen, Alexa Chung, Agyness Deyn and Victoria Beckham together in the custom-built venue. Then there was Christopher Bailey’s pastel colour palette and his new twist on the classic Burberry trench coat.
It was a lighter collection from Burberry Prorsum, who only a few seasons ago were spearheading the studded metal embellishment trend, but it was a light spring collection full of new-look trench coats which came complete with puff sleeves in an array of fabrics and shades.
If Burberry Prorsum is a show to go by, next Spring is looking like a romantic one with soft dresses in floaty chiffons that were draped and tucked to create the illusion of a curvier figure – perfect for the runway models, but what about the rest of the population? All the looks were cinched at the waist, harking back to the British fashion house’s military roots and giving the collection a little more restraint.
And to end the week/night, Burberry threw a party to end all parties with celebrity DJs and a star studded crowd.
