Burberry started off young and vibrant. With cool kids wearing polo shirts, rugby shirts, leather jackets, colourful checks and V-neck tops. The girls wore their hair in a tight bum, but had the coolest artwork of small little hairs on their foreheads. Halfway through the show Sara Eirud turned up in an enormous puffer coat. What a way to shake and wake things up! A few asymmetric patchwork dresses and corseted tops in the mix and then on came the trenchcoats. The second – and better – half of the show was filled with the chicest looks; perfect posh cocktail dresses, skirt suits, capes and trenchcoats with the iconic check as a lining (the classic coat everyone would love hanging in their closets). Not to mention the picture perfect men’s tailoring. So eventually Riccardo Tisci pleased everyone. Fashion forward statement makers at the beginning and signature success numbers (that will generate most of the label’s income) towards the end.
