It was a heart attack on the Burberry runway seen in the collection Christopher Bailey entitled, “Trench Kisses.” Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Freida Pinto, Rita Ora, and Kate Beckinsale looked on from the front row, and Tom Odell serenaded the crowd with a group of trench coat wearing backup singers. The color palette of black, white, brown, and red, kept the looks classic, and the addition of hearts, stripes, and animal prints were just the right ingredients for a beautiful twist.
Then there was the latex. The pieces came out strong, but not in a Fifty Shades of Grey sort of way. More like a sweet classy Burberry girl kind of way. The shear latex skirt with heart printed hot pants underneath had to be one of my favorite looks, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Kate Beckinsale is seen wearing it in an upcoming fashion editorial.
I’m always fascinated by how Burberry belts its looks, especially the trench coats. Lucky for me almost every look was styled with a gold wonder woman piece. The use of leather and eyelets as opposed to spikes were another plus in my book, and with the addition of a subtle animal print kitten heeled wedges this show was indeed perfection.
