Burberry Prorsum AW 12 - Tweetwalk!

Today was the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2012 show at London Fashion Week. Burberry, lead by creative director Christopher Bailey, is definitely one of my favourite designer brands and always delivers stunning collections that combine traditional British style whilst nailing current trends. It is a life ambition for me to own a signature Burberry trench coat!

It seems odd to be talking about Autumn/Winter collections in the middle of February but such is the way of fashion! I followed the pictures Burberry was tweeting live from the runway (the Tweetwalk!) and was instantly impressed, so much so I almost want it to be autumn again just to be wearing these styles.

After putting a tribal twist on the Spring Summer collection, Burberry well and truly returned to it's British heritage for autumn.

The coat, of course, was key, and came in corduroy, belted around the waist to maximise the impact of the hourglass silhouette, as well as cropped puffas and panelled trenches. There was definitely a 40's 'land-girl' feel to the collection with peplum midi skirts, quilted accessories, and an earthy palette of browns and greens, along with tweed and houndstooth print. There was a modern element of fun with owl motif tee shirts and stripes, as well as edgy studded leather gloves and crisp white shirts, with velvet being the texture for eveningwear.

Those present included Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Eddie Redmayne, with Cara Delevingne, Arizona Muse and Jourdan Dunn walking in the show.

For the finale, Burberry embraced the renowned British weather by putting on a display of rain and thunder, hence the umbrellas!

The Burberry show is sure to feature heavily in the magazines come the September issue, and I can't wait to see how the high street interprets it!
