Were you one of the eager beavers who sat online last night to watch the Burberry show stream live? If you did, you would have felt pretty smug indeed, as creative director Christopher Bailey churned out a gorgeous collection of candy floss colours and textures – pretty, knotted chiffon in shades of pastel pink, powder blue, lemon and lilac – alongside luxe satin sheen leggings and sparkling crystal trenchcoats – oh, and some of the most covetable shoes we’ve seen in a long, long time!
Pulling a front row crowd that included stars such as Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler, Freida Pinto, Dev Patel, Mary-Kate Olsen, Agyness Deyn, Alexa Chung and Daisy Lowe (phew!) is no mean feat, but Burberry’s return to show in London after a number of years in Milan also drew the creme de la creme of the fashion world too, with US Vogue‘s Anna Wintour, French Vogue‘s Carine Roitfeld, editor of US Harper’s Bazaar Glenda Bailey, Alexandra Schulman of UK Vogue and famous fashion photographer Mario Testino all camped out next to the A-listers in the front row.
While it’s proper front row decorum to wear the designer on show, Paltrow, Watson, Deyn and Pinto all managed to get their hands on pieces from the collection before it strutted down the runway – lucky ladies! It was a triumphant return to London for Bailey, and definitely brought a sense of excitement and glamour to the 25th anniversary of London Fashion Week.
