London Fashion Week SS13: Highlights

These are some of  my highlights of the last London Fashion Week: It is quite difficult to forget the Temperley show with those amazing gowns, the models eating cupcakes at Meadham Kirchhoff or the great music at Burberry Prorsum, among others.

I will show you a closer look to some of my favorite collections in the next days, so keep tuned!!

Which one was your favorite? Which designer´s show would you have loved to see live?

Burberry Prorsum ss13 show: my pictures

Yesterday I enjoyed another great Burberry Prorsum show at the Kensington Gardens. This season the tent was covered when we came in (was dark inside), but then when the show started it was opened and left all the light inside…beautiful to take good pictures and to appreciate all the details.

Maybe I am repetitive, but this brand is doing better and better. Christopher Bailey is able to reinvent a trench time and time again without forgetting Burberry heritage. The next spring-summer season will be about capes and corsets, bright colors (the color blocking continues, so keep all the last season clothes in your wardrobe) and metallic garments. Everything very feminine and elegant. 

In this collection Bailey used leather, satin, lace, metallic leather and silk, embroidery, plastic and feathers. One of the most amazing pieces I´ve ever seen is this coat handmade with hundreds of very small peacock feathers…I saw it really close and touched it at the Headquarters and it was almost a Haute couture piece.

The carousel finale was amazing with all the models wearing a trench in metallic colours like a rainbow.

I like the accessories too, specially the sunglasses and the shoes! They are very smart and high, but look comfy thanks to the wedge. The materials are great: leather and snake skin in bright colors (red, klein blue, green, white, gold or silver). In the showroom they look amazing (I will show you the photos soon)

Some pieces of the collection (all the coats, capes and bags) are available to order online in Burberry.com for the next 4 days!

You can check all my pictures of the show in the slideshow below and the full video (Listen to the music, it is very good!)

Burberry Prorsum SS13: show and new flagship store

As you know I am an unconditional fan of Burberry and Christopher Bailey and his team. He is doing such a great job for the brand that every season is able to surprise me and everyone and innovate while others are just trying to survive.

This is the ticket for the next Monday show in Kensington Gardens. It is so beautiful that is impossible not to show it to you… It has on it some of the most important London monuments and the new worldwide flagship store that the company just opened in Regent Street, London. Bailey has created a limited edition accessories collection to celebrate it.

The new shop has more than 2500 m2 (the biggest Burberry store in the world), 4 floors, a 7 meters digital screen, 100 video screens, 500 speakers, stage for events, iPads to buy instore…It will be like going into www.Burberry.com but physically.

The designer introduce to you this new shopping experience on the video: hope you like it!

Looking forward to the Spring Summer 2013 show on Monday! I´m sure it will be another great one!

London Fashion Week 2012: street style I

Welcome to the London Fashion Week another season! The first day has been a very interesting one, I attended to lots of shows (Antoni and Alison, Corrie Nielsen, Maria Grachvogel, Bora Aksu, Caroline Charles and Felder Felder) We couldn´t make it into the Zöe Jordan one, at least 50 people were left out, because the place was packed, but didn´t have any problems in the other catwalks.

The weather was quite good, so there were plenty of people at the Somerset House, some of them ready for a street style picture and some just working and running between shows like me. This season I saw more people than ever, maybe this event it is losing a bit its special ambient, but I left you the photos and you can decide by yourself.

I like some of the portraits, very inspiring. Please, let me know what you think!!

Are you looking forward for any show? I will go for sure to Burberry Prorsum, David Koma, Paul Smith, Meadham Kirchhoff and Louis Gray, among others, very exciting…

Tomorrow a lot more interesting shows, I will tell you everything on my Twitter as usual and later here all the pictures.
