London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 Pt 1: Burberry Prorsum, Erdem

Burberry Prorsum

There was much to love at Christopher Bailey's Spring/Summer collection for Burberry Prorsum, with beautiful a colour palette, exotic prints & beading (including gorgeous beaded shoes), raffia, and leather...Some prints almost looked Duro Olowu-esque, and not something one would expect from this classic British label, but it was quite refreshing. My favourite pieces include the opening purple trench, with its full skirt, contrasting collar, and very fitted upper. The parka is another piece that made me sigh, love it, as well as the nude classic trenchcoat:


I am absolutely over-the-moon with my latest Erdem score, my favourite print of last Spring/Summer's collection in a flowing silk maxi skirt. This season offered more of Erdem's 'light-as-air' lace and fresh florals:

Matthew Williamson

Loved the mustard, loved the cobalt, loved the green/white/yellow print, loved these pieces:



  1. Love love love all!!! All very different.

    Matthew Williamson probably my favourite as the colours are so bright and summery, perfect for London, where its grey the clothes need to make you feel happy again :)

    Christopher Bailey is probably more realistic with lots of warmer summer clothes... haha! (also love his colour palette)

  2. awesome collections here!

  5. I guess I share your love with Burberry:-) Love esp. some green/blue colors also a look in burgundy. And as you already mentioned the skirts, it always kind of amaze me how fast Burberry is with the commercial that people can preorder some runway pieces which will be available in 8 weeks.. crazy... but better to let "them" buy now before people see more collections they love and maybe don´t want to spend in a few months the money... but I LOOOVE THEIR PIECES :)

  6. i love all the full skrts and pleats and stuff at the burberry prorsum show!
