Brilliant Burberry

3.30pm yesterday (Saturday 12th, 2013) couldn’t come soon enough. Unfortunately my invite from Christopher Bailey got lost in the post, I therefore had to make do with watching the live-stream of the Menswear AW/13 show. But to be quite honest with you all, I felt like I was perched on the front row, wedged in between Tinie Tempah and Greg James. So a BIG thank you to the digital technology that we are so privileged to have today. Watching the live-stream brings the collection to life, the colours jump out at you, the textures force your senses to go wild, but more importantly it makes you feel a part of the brand.

I HEART Digital Technology!

Right, It’s time to share some photos with you! All of the images you will see below have been taken from the live-stream. Throughout the stream I continuously captured screen shoot after screen shoot (whilst in complete admiration of course). 


As you can see from the above image Olive Green was used frequently throughout the collection. I think this works really well, particularly when introducing BOLD prints and colours as they stand out 10 times more. What I especially like about the Olive Green is it creates a softer touch on the military theme. An array of different features were displayed including: felt patches, back pleats, cavalry twills, oversized collars, cuff straps, along with heritage references and much much more! 

Oxblood was then introduced which complimented the soft Olive Green just perfectly! As you most probably know I love leather so when I spotted the contrasting leathers with patent collars I was over the moon! 

Can you spot the beautiful print at the back? I bet you're thinking polka dot is back, right? If so, think again...


Lets all feel the love for 2013 and embrace the hearts!

Translucent rubber trench coats ensured that the beautiful heart prints were NOT going to waste...

This is one of my favourite looks from the show...

I'm not entirely sure if the Model himself has influenced my decision, or if the contrasting prints have won me over, or simply because I'm a sucker for a man in a suit. Who Knows! But I mean come on, animal print shoes with a heart print shirt - you can't get much better than that! 

You might have noticed in some of the pictures that the models are gripping onto a little something. Well these my friend are Ipad Mini Cases. Christopher Bailey is obviously very fond of Ipad Minis, I can't say I am at the moment - perhaps I'll see the obsession in the near future?
 Why not check out their range of cases HERE. I think my favourite has got to be the heart printed one, however the studded calfskin version sits very closely behind in second place!

As I mentioned before the colours jump out at you whilst watching the live-Stream...what do you think of this attention grabbing Royal Purple? You've got to LOVE the wet look finish!

Boxy Caban coats also filled the runway and the above lambskin version is one of my favourites. This is the part where my senses were going wild - I could almost feel the smoothness of the luxurious lambskin.


Duffle Coats also made an appearance...I better whack my one out from the loft which I wore to school many years ago! 

Animal prints also made their way onto cross body satchels, totes and boston bags which you can view HERE.

Quirky Sunnies added the final touches to the collection and certainly gave it the WOW factor. 

I do not normally like contrasting animal prints, however I think the above caban style coat has been designed and finished just flawlessly.

OH NO...does it have to end? 

Take a bow Mr Bailey. You truly are AMAZING!

There are so many other beautiful elements from the show which I haven't managed to squeeze into this post. Also, my pictures are only screen shoots so I do apologise as they aren't the best of quality. Therefore if you fancy watching the live-stream and seeing the collection come to life for yourself, then you can watch it Here.

Sit back, grab some snacks, and just admire the beautiful collection. Like me, you might find yourself watching it over and over again - I can honestly say it only gets better! Surely it's not normal to only watch it once?

OH and before I go, I better show you my nails...after all they were inspired from the Burberry show!

I thought it was only right that my Burberry bangle made an appearance too!

Heart shape tips with some added leopard print.

I hope you like!
