i wasn’t at every show (far from it, I’ve grown picky) but these are some of the better moments amusing and otherwise…including Burberry
Henrys vacuuming the carpet before Christopher Kane
Very cool sunnies at Acne
Slebish front row at Christopher Kane. She’s got great legs that Chung chick….
slebish front row at Burberry many head to toe in Burb….
view from front row -runway with Albert memorial in background
in fact, loved the Burberry show. Check out the pockets and belts. Townie meets country with some Tudorish influences.
only Burberry and the late great Alexander McQueen before them could make it rain……
synthetic rain inside.. as heavily reported, and not a Burb check in sight..
specially constructed press arena out front…a la The Oscars… which goes a long way to proving my point that Burberry are the new Armani….
I loved these shows… Christopher Kane for his fabulous shapes, delicious colours and his ability to move things along and Acnestudios for its gritty urban chic.
here’s a visual rundown…
note the high waists and great colours
slightly sixties/seventies vibe..
Christopher Kane – a lavender runway – scented too.. with a color spectrum from black to vibrant red…
the long, wide carpeted runway….
the end… a sophisticated graduation of colour….
next up, inside Burberry…
I’m really fortunate because I get to interview fashion designers (amongst other people) for my WSJ column. Recently I’ve been chatting to Manolo Blahnik, Michael Kors and Christopher Kane. They all had a few things in common: a sense of humour, an incredible passion for what they do and a refusal to settle for second best. Stay tuned for Frida Giannini from Gucci and Donna Karan, both forces of nature…..
