London fashion week: Burberry, Roksanda Ilincic give varied views of femininity
LONDON (AFP) - Neon colours and geometric forms at Roksanda Ilincic and pastel-coloured lace and cashmere at Burberry Prorsum offered contrasting interpretations of femininity at London Fashion Week on Monday.
Luxury brand Burberry is one of the biggest names here and did not disappoint with a dreamy collection of skirts, blouses, cardigans and coats in pastel colours and made with soft Scottish cashmere and English lace.
Actress Sienna Miller was in the front row to see elegant jerseys with a minimum of detail, either a small fold at the nape or a bow above a bare back, matched with intricate lace and cut-out white leather pencil skirts.
A jolt of colour was provided by a red and white polka dot blouse tucked into a black and cream striped skirt, while belts embedded with crystals or gold-studded flowers gave romantic outfits a sharp edge.
