Burberry Prorsum Womenswear S/S10

It was a star studded affair last night and Christopher Bailey showed why he's appealing to the young Britsters.

It couldn't really get bigger than this in London; Burberry Prorsum returning to London Fashion Week of course made it the hot ticket of the week and unlike other big names that the British Fashion Council try to lure into the schedule, Burberry Prorsum made complete sense in its London show setting of the Chelsea College of Art by the Tate Britain. Christopher Bailey took the occasion to remind people of the core essence of Burberry Prorsum and its knack to take classics and warp them into an upgraded version of the original. So trenches were knotted, ruched at the hems to transform this iconic piece of outerwear. The shoulders were also knotted and given height. Colours were either neutral or pastel, in line with other shows we have seen but it's the washed fabrics and thetexturised parachute silk combined with the knotting and layering of fabrics that are the memorable themes of the show, as well as a stunning silver tinselled trench that glimmered on the catwalk.
