The show was opened by the beautiful Cara Delevingne and followed by Jourdan Dunn – and were followed by a host of beautiful models in autumnal shades of dark plum, bronze, mauve, teal and ivy green, a palette that 's more suited to an autumn/winter show but with such beautiful pieces nobody's complaining, plus you can buy several pieces from the Spring summer collection right now, yes RIGHT NOW, only on Burberry (of course!) so this may be in the inspiration for such dark colours. Now Isn't that smart? As Tom Ford has pointed out several times, the shows and clothes get so much exposure that people are bored of them by the time they hit the shops, what a bright idea, in-fact an idea right on the money - to sell your products while they are still very much in everyone's mind and more importantly on their "I want this now!" list. Genius Idea.
Textures were key to the s/s 11 look - Woven raffia bags, belts and shoes, in stripes of mustard and navy or plum and black, hardy cotton Luxury parkas whose hoods were trimmed in bulging, spiky raffia or with Shaggy fur collars. If we had any doubts about the Parka being back they are long gone!
