Burberry February 2016
"Christopher's collection was a statement on outerwear."
Helen David, Harrods Fashion Director of Womenswear, Women's Shoes, Accessories, Fine Jewellery, and Childrenswear
The lowdown: With change in the air in the fashion industry, who better to switch up the standard than pioneering fashion powerhouse Burberry with its future set in see-now, buy-now fashion. And while the transition is underway, for the February 2016 collection at least, outerwear ruled with a distinctly British feel in classic heritage military jackets, juxtaposed to a more grungy subversive edge playing out on parkas, while the signature trench came textured in python and patent. Sparkly sequin florals adorned mini dresses and caped silk blouses, while greens and browns were a key shades lending '70s vibes to proceedings. Adding to the innately British backdrop, of course, was the live music from Jake Bugg, not to mention the faces on front row - Burberry alumni Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Suki Waterhouse.
"Christopher's collection was a statement on outerwear. What was underneath largely went unnoticed with all of the autumnal cosy coats. The house’s signature trench was reworked in python and patent, while military jackets and parkas topped printed mini dresses, with earthy shades dominating the colour palette. A standout piece was the oversized shearling with python panels," said Helen David, Harrods Fashion Director of Womenswear, Women's Shoes, Accessories, Fine Jewellery, and Childrenswear, of the show.
