Burberry’s A/W10 Womenswear show yesterday was a star-studded rendezvous with an impressive front-row seating the likes of Carey Mulligan – winner of Best Actress at Monday night’s Bafta’s, Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart, Mary Kate Olsen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Palermo and Mario Testino. But that’s not all the only big news, Burberry’s A/W show was also being streamed live on their website and viewed in 3-D by selective groups of invited guests in New York, Tokyo, L.A, and Dubai – It was a show not to be missed and it proved rightly so by the collection we were presented with.
Christopher Bailey’s latest collection was an explosion of hugely covetable pieces. From gorgeous sheepskin-lined aviator jackets; some cropped at the waist with double collars to millitary inspired looks with fabulous detailing in the form of gold buttons, multiple buckles up the sleeves and zips that in some of the coats offered to slice-off the bottom leaving just a fitted, cropped version. We thought these two-in-one look jackets were just remarkable and fitting for A/W10.
The thigh-high snake-skin stilletto boots were also a highlight and they were uber sexy over tights and skinny pants worn by the models. We also loved ankle boots with the multiple buckles and sheepskin linings which gave the Burberry woman a tough persona that made the silk bandage dresses in raspberry and gold chiffon, silk and muslin look even more outstanding.
However, If there is one thing that is a must-have from this collection it will have to be a pick from the magnificent coat selection which from what we saw believe that Burberry already wears the crown for designing many of what will be labelled “The Perfect coat” in A/W 2010.
