LFW Burberry F/W 2013/14

How many ways can Christopher Bailey rework the trench? This signature piece is so ingrained in their DNA that a Burberry show is definitely incomplete without it. However for this season, he put a surprisingly romantic twist to the entire collection. Case in point: when the slogan is ‘Trench Kisses’ and a Live Performance from singer Tim Odell (backed by an entire chorus clothed in Burberry trenches) is revealed halfway, you just know it’s something memorable.

Filled with romantic motifs, it was like Valentines Day but on safari. There were love heart prints and animal prints on blouses, coats and leather skirts. Bold colours like oxblood or signal red were balanced out by the supple neutrals of camel, sand and brown. But back to the trenches. Revamped with added metallic detail in the collar or belt, sometimes with a slick of glossy overcoat and even with an added layer of ‘armour’ so suited to Karlie Kloss. 

In future, it will be a rare occasion when any collection at fashion week moves me in the way that Burberry did this season.

  1. How I love Burberry Prorsum! I love the oversized red sweater, the heart printed skirt and the white dress with studded top (you didn't select that one) so much! Can't get enough of my favourite British designer.
