London Fashion Week

Burberry SS17

For his second season at Makers House in London's Soho, Cristopher Bailey and the Burberry team staged a Henry Moore exhibition, bringing together a series of the iconic, curvaceous sculptures, which were placed among the wicker seats for showgoers to marvel at and, of course, Instagram. For no Burberry show is without a photo op or ten: the front row, this time running across multiple FROWs and comprising Naomi Campbell, Olivia Palermo, Jourdan Dunn and Lily Donaldson to name but a few, a live performance by Anna Calvi... And that's before we even got to the clothes.

For its February 2017 line-up, inspired by Moore's art, the fashion house served up a crisp palette of white, denim blue and black. Combining womenswear and menswear once again and offering customers the opportunity to by straight off the runway, all 78 exits looked razor-sharp and directional. Classic pieces for him and her were reworked into new icons – trenches came with extra-long sleeves and exaggerated cuff flaps, tuxedos were deconstructed and on occasion even lopped off at one shoulder to showcase a crisp white shirt underneath.

Medieval references abounded – a rope cape resembled body armour and a lace appliqué on a man's shirt took the shape of a breast plate, while epaulettes came plumed or fringed. Sweaters appeared in many a desirable iteration, from super-chunky and wrapped around the body to off-the shoulder for the girls and tucked into trousers for the boys. Meanwhile, dresses took inspiration from the humble white shirt – sliced with lace, ballooned at the sleeve and asymmetrical in their mini lengths, they were the epitome of fresh.
