London Fashion Week SS 2012

Burberry Prorsum, perhaps one of the most famous brands in Britain. And why is it necessary to speak separately.

Who: Christopher Bailey

Christopher Bailey - British designer forty years. He became famous thanks to the excellent work as creative director of Burberry. He was appointed director in 2001 and was headed by the following lines: Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, Thomas Burberry. By 2011, Bailey raised the brand to a whole new level. A talented designer knows what he wants the younger generation, and successfully use this knowledge in their collections.

Where: Kensington Gardens

Kensington Gardens (Kensington Gardens) - Royal Park in London's Kensington district, around Kensington Palace. This is the second show of the brand in the Gardens. Transfer venue display due to the fact that every year in the fashion show, more and more guests. To display built a special glass structure, through which gleam outdoor foliage. In general, the park is not allowed to build anything, but for the British fashion house made an exception.

Guests: Testino, Miller, Huntington-Whiteley

Among the guests was a real heavy artillery: Kanye West, Sienna Miller, Mario Testino, Andy Murray, Gemma Artenton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. And, of course, Anna Wintour.

By the way, the whole show was detained for 15 minutes at 16:15 and no one is allowed.


The designer said of his collection as "a bright, joyful and nostalgic." Nostalgic - absolutely precise definition, take at least a recognizable silhouette of the new look and sandals woven wedges. The collection runs through the idea of ​​needlework: knitting, embroidery and weaving. New technologies, Bailey used for fashion shows in the form of live or service order dresses podium immediately after the show, do not forget to give the designer of hand-made and the hard work of the tailor.

"With this collection, I wanted to take a step back»

Wooden beads embroidered shoes. Knitted trench. Woven bags. The colors - mustard, plum and dark green sometimes created autumnal mood rather than the summer. Overall, however, for Britain is not the hottest collection of very old, especially this tells us shoes with braided platform. From the materials we note raffia: is a rather uneven strip fibers from the leaves of palm trees. And, of course, it reminds us of Africa.


Classic Burberry. Nude makeup. Perhaps the most difficult. The work team of makeup artists at first sight is not felt, but we all know that in this case they put a lot of effort to create such a natural and, I would say, a bit heavy (thanks to the light in front of the bronze shading) makeup. Natural color of the eyebrows, perfect tone, light outline shadow - a great make-up.

Inspiration: Henry Moore

Location Bailey drew inspiration? Despite the clearly discernible and so popular this season, and exotic ethnic motives, Bailey argues that inspired silhouettes legendary artist Henry Moore.

But given that Moore was influenced by Picasso, which in turn is also dependent on the subject of Africa, we can say that the textures, silhouettes and images of models played a tribal edge.
