Hello-Hello, please allow us to express our gratitude that today is Friday. Good grief, what a frenzied week!
As promised, we are finally posting photos from the Burberry Prorsum show at London Fashion Week, starting with celebrities on their way to the show.
As always, Ms. Beckham is looking rather fierce. Below, the new star of the Burberry advertising campaign, Emma Watson.
A closer look at Ms. Watson’s shoes:
We love the way photographers at events are now shooting things like shoes.
Also on hand, über-prep Gwyneth Paltrow, seen below with Ms. Roberts.
On to the clothes:
We did love the pastel color palette.
We didn’t see one negative review of the show. From the Suzy Menkes column in the IHT:
“…. Burberry Prorsum set a gold standard for London fashion week. The show was sophisticated, modern and about as far as you can step on giant platform shoes from Burberry’s muddy, military origins.”
Incredible best describes the draping on the pieces.
More from the IHT/NYT story by Ms. Menkes:
“Ironically, after a soggy, rain-soaked British summer 2009, Mr. Bailey offered only sunny weather clothes, created in the trench coat’s traditional neutral color or in macaroon pastels, from sugar pink and primrose yellow to ice blue.”
Ms. Menkes continues with a look at the brand’s target demo:
“The brand may have deep British roots, but the clothes were aimed at the young, fast-paced international set.”
The Telegraph story took note of the number of celebrities in attendance:
From the left, Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Alexa Chung and Mary-Kate Olsen.
There were bubble dresses and skirts accompanied by lots of ruching.
While not for TP, the pieces look stunning in the photos we have seen.
We have two more quick hits, the first from Milan Fashion Week (yes, it is already underway, can you believe it?!), as Vogue’s Anna Wintour escorts Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka Vravinec, to the Armani show.
The apparel is by Hickey Freeman, a ‘go to’ for the Consort. Actual play gets underway October 6 at Harding Park in San Francisco.
May everyone have a simply splendid weekend filled with sun and relaxation!
