The Fashion North team were waiting for the Burberry AW14 show with baited breath, and we were not disappointed.
The show screamed modern bohemia with Aztec print throws in shades of rich brown, bottle green and midnight blue, finished off with the model’s initials embroidered on them. We want one!
The classic Burberry trench made an appearance, reworked with painted on floral designs reminiscent of William Morris, giving them an updated look. Coats teamed with delicate silk scarves were tucked into belts and gave models an unusual, but beautiful, silhouette.
Handbags are set to be big next season, literally. Models carried oversized hand painted bags of flowers to polka dots, each with their own unique design.
As with all beautiful bags you need an amazing pair of shoes. Bailey has created a sleek, open-toed ankle boots, with a slim heel which complemented them perfectly.
Apparently the new way to wear a coat is draped over your shoulders, teamed with a printed silk scarf, all held in place with a belt. Very chic, but we aren’t sure its going to keep us very warm. (Although we do love it!)
The models were styled with minimalist make-up and hair, making the clothes the main focus.
However, attention was slightly stolen by a star-studded model line-up and equally starry FROW. Models, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn were watched by Bradley Cooper, Harry Styles and the formidable Anna Wintour, the celebs and fashion world sure came out in force.
Rufus Wainwright and Paloma Faith sang through the show, adding to the theatrical production.
Burberry have reinvented their classic looks, and kept them on par for 2014. The floaty fabrics and feminine prints are the dream addition to anyones wardrobe.
