The mood was dark and romantic at the Burberry Prorsum show today, certain to appeal to the punk-rock in all of us. The opening look, an all lace minidress and flapping trench coat, all black, started the tone of the show. The shoes, flats with chain details, were reminiscent of the shoes we saw at Alexander Wang in New York. In a nice change of pace, that was one of the few trench coats that we saw on the runway. Instead designer Christopher Bailey opted for shorter jacket options, including toggle coats and a black leather motorcycle jacket with gold hardware and piping. Following trends that we saw across the pond in NYC, the outfits were light and sheer. Tops and dresses were made with thin lace and sheer silks, and a silky slip dress even made an appearance, something no house has been short of. On the back of some of the models were monogrammed backpacks, which also made an appearance on the lap of Cara Delevingne, sitting front row at the show. If these backpacks follow the trend of the monogrammed ponchos made famous by the brand, we’ll be seeing these backpacks all over the streets in no time.
