Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Sienna Miller and Rachel Zoe were front row at Burberry Prorsumâ€˜s Spring Summer 2012 Womenswear Show at Kensington Gardens today (September 19) in London, during London Fashion Week.
Burberry Body Ambassador Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked glamboyantly stylish in an orange Burberry Resort leather trench, black skinny jeans and a brown top.
WWD reports the collection was an evolution of the men\’s wear Bailey showed in Milan last June, and was filled with piles of printed, jacquard, and embellished outerwear. Trench coats, some with slim lines and others with full skirts, had detachable beaded or crocheted collars, chunky bits of mismatched colored wood, or raffia flourishes. Sexy pencil skirts were fashioned from striped jacquard raffia and stretch cotton basket knit, while parkas had sleeves made from woven leather.
The collection looks more Pre-Fall to me rather than a Spring/Summer Collection, but I do love the bright blue, dusky pink and eggplant colours matched to classic tailoring with a twist. Christopher Bailey shared backstage the following:
“I wanted the collection to be joyous, happy, upbeat.”Â “I love the contradiction between this idea of artisanal hand skills, things that take time to make â€” and digital speed. They can co-exist.”
