Burberry Autumn/Winter 2012 Campaign

I just love the black-and-white, foggy, cinematic photographs for Burberry’s A/W 2012 Campaign.

“We wanted to play with everything that’s at the heart of the Burberry world — celebrating our brand and London through imagery, film, music, weather and our iconic outerwear, all in a very poetic and British way,” said chief creative officer Christopher Bailey – WWD

LFW Autumn/Winter 2012 Runway review

2012 A/W London Fashion Week was interesting – showed some covetable dark glamour and mysterious woman trends to try out come Autumn/Winter.

Lots of fur detailing and leather was key. Feminine modern lace-inspired looks were still a focus while other designers opted for a military influence.

London’s trends were back to winter basics – herringbone tweeds, stripes, big chunky hand-knits but still echoed the belted layers and the new emphasis on the hips trend seen on the A/W 2012 NYFW runways.

Colours: olive, burgundy, plum, mustard, orange and brown in every shade.

Highlight was McQ ‘s debut at fashion week with a leafy runway – the models crunching the catwalk’s carpet of faded autumn leaves was just beautiful.

Bows, Long Coats, Suede bags – The minute I saw the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear A/W 2012 collection I knew it was definitely made for me.

The Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2012 Show

Once again Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey delivered a flawless collection that displayed the fashion house’s traditional heritage blended with modern elegance.

While it was pouring torrential rain outside of Kensington Garden tent, Bailey called for his own rain on his parade as models ended the show carrying this season’s striped umbrellas – just as magical as the artificial snow backdrop from last year’s A/W 2011 show.

The colour palette of neutrals teamed with olive-green, burgundy, plum, mustard, teal was a slight echo of the earthy tones used in the S/S 2012 collection.

While I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that found Burberry’s summery S/S12 collection easily mistaken as Fall, this Autumn/Winter collection was right on the money when it came to the weather – Tailored coats paired with flared velvet and wool skirt and a bow belt.

The key piece of the season was a pencil skirt with a big diagonal ruffle and the big suede bag.

LFW Spring/Summer 2012 Runway review

LFW runway shows kept to more natural palettes and focused on wear-ability and modernism but still echoed NYFW’s edgy floral and femininity. Overall no real stand out, but my favourite shows were Burberry Prorsum and Paul Smith.

My top 10 NYFW S/S12 runway shows:

Felicity Brown

Signature hand-dyed ruffles, fusion of Victorian and African inspirations, unique, delicate and beautiful

Zoe-Jordan

Wearable, earthy tones, comfort

Jaeger London

A very feminine collection from Jaeger London – Pastels, lovely and lady-like

Mulberry

Continuing with their FW11 animal theme, SS12 brought a touch of safari with zebra and leopard prints but with soften pastel candy colours

“It was inspired by the neon-festooned lights at Blackpool and I was looking at pictures of when I was growing up in the Seventies and holidays meant sitting on the beach with a cagoule on. It’s still very rooted in outerwear and she’s still very Mulberry and that English girl,” explained Mulberry’s creative director Emma Hill after the show.

Christopher Kane

Modern, shimmers, fresh


Erdem

Floral laser cut prints,  silky and soft and feminine

Nicole Farhi

Simplicity, energetic, youthful

Temperley London

Extravagant,elegant, silky long and sheer nude dresses, goddess like

Paul Smith

Comfort, relaxed, boys-for-girls look

Burberry Prorsum

African influence, mesmerising, lots of raffia and geometric prints.

I always look forward to the Burberry shows each season and am never disappointed. Read here for the rest of my review of the SS12 fashion show. In the mean time enjoy the full fashion show, courtesy of Burberry:

Updated: PS I am totally obsessed with U2’s cover of Everlasting Love and pretty much the rest of the soundtrack used for Burberry’s runway.
