(A Late) Tuesday Ten: My Favourite Looks From Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Firstly, I apologise for the late Tuesday Ten, I was rather busy yesterday with boring school stuff. Anyway, all I am writing about at the moment is all these fashion shows, they've taken over All Things Foxy. And yet again, we have another. For Audrey it was Givenchy, for me it's Burberry that is my ultimate favourite designer. I love how Burberry is so classically British and sophisticated in every line. However, there was a huge update for Spring 2014: Christopher Bailey was in relaxed mode. He entertained us with soft cashmere sweaters and roomy coats of double-faced cashmere. Not very summery you might cry - but with hail stones rattling the roof just seconds after bright sunshine, who's to judge anything on assumptions about the weather. The palette was pastely passive -Ladurée macaroon colours letting lacy dresses and front-split pencil skirts play tasty filling to the coats, while sheepskin clutches scrunched in one hand added a dash of darker orange or pink. Let's all drool shall we?

So perfectly polished and elegant yet it still holds a slouchy, androgynous feel. Christopher said in an interview that he was inspired by a British rose garden, filled with dusty pastels but with pops of sharp red. The show finished with a usual fantastic finale; the models strutted their stuff down the catwalk while rose petals delicately feel from above. Ahh, if only the show wasn't invite-only...
