When you think about Burberry at London Fashion Week, you expect a total show. Fashion with unmistakable DNA, spectacular location, live music worthy of the London music scene and the very spectacle of front row guests’ mere arriving.
And it’s virtually impossible to be mistaken! Under the watchful and appreciative eyes of Anna Wintour, Mario Testino and Bradley Cooper, with an original soundtrack by Paloma Faith, Ed Harcourt and Rhodes, Christopher Bailey orchestrated a runway for Cara Delenvigne, Suki Waterhouse and other British beauties’ showcase of a Burberry with strong impressions of art.
His inspiration for Burberry Prorsum fall-winter 2014/2015 were the decorative arts. And, indeed, the long, fluid, almost tasselled finished dresses were reminiscent of brushes dripping with saturated or, on the contrary, burnt, dusty shades that seemed to have splashed ornaments onto entire looks. Scarves, shoes and the new Bloomsbury bag, but also ponchos and the brand’s iconic trench coats all got painted with bold floral and geometric motifs.

More than that, like following every podium, a selection of next season’s looks can be ordered, by March 3rd, directly from the hands of Burberry’s tailors and artisans. As the pre-ordered pieces are handmade to order and can be personalized by featuring the initials or a nameplate of its future owner. And the temptations are many…
