London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011: Burberry
Get on your bike folks because Burberry just roared into town! For Christopher Bailey's Spring 2011 collection, the designer took us on a biker journey filled with lots of leather, aviator jackets, and military-eque coats. In front of an enviable front row including Sarah Jessica Parker, Alexa Chung, and Andy Murray, Bailey also went global in front of a worldwide online audience. Pushing the interaction boundaries, he also streamed the show live at 25 of his stores, where customers were able to order items directly off the catwalk!
But back to the collection... Along with the biker theme, the signature trench was toughened with padding, leather straps and stud-lined shoulders. There were also variations in silver and green python, which were teamed with futuristic silver leggings and silk printed dresses.
