Burberry Prorsum A/W 2011

I imagine I wasn't the only one that tuned into the Burberry livestream yesterday, especially as it was a trending topic on Twitter.

I was excited all afternoon, there's just something about watching a fashion show that excites me, seeing the new collection for the first time, the music and special effects and obviously seeing the models and how they've been styled in terms of makeup and hair. As this was the Burberry show I was extra excited as I've been a fan of their collections for a couple of years now, I think it's all the studded detail they use and the coats, always good coats at Burberry. Who hasn't lusted after a classic trench?

Back to the show, there was snow, Dusty Springfield, fur, colour, Dalmation print, more snow, Anna Wintour front row, hats, tartan/check, capes, bubble shaped sleeves, tweed, leather, flares, clutch bags, arran, belted waists. transparent plastic and the most amazing shoes.

To be quite honest it was the shoes that grabbed my attention most, I know I know, I just kept being drawn to the models feet. The shoes were a black wedge with buckle detailing, they don't sound too special but they really were. Ridiculously high but they really fitted the style of the clothing, giving a classic feel but the height making them edgy.

Some of the coats I loved from the show

I love the use of classic fabrics and the colour palette used for these coats, very English heritage. I especially like the burgandy tweed trousers contrasting with the rich dark fur in the last image, I adore those colours together, if there was a bit of dark forest green involved somewhere in the collection I might have squealed a little bit. Anyway, good colour choices, yes.

You can check out the collection here
