Burberry has to be my favourite label. Why? Well, a few reasons spring to mind. They are effortless. Burberry do not need to make a huge song and dance to be noticed. Some designers make their models up with blue eyebrows, slick their hair back which makes the most beautiful model resemble Gollum, put bright pink blush together with pillar-box red lips, or design clothes that could never be wearable in a million years. But Burberry put their models in simple makeup and simple hair. Boring? No. Normally it would be but with Burberry it works. For it’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection we see practical clothing which is already being replicated by the high street (New Look’s Shearling boots which I own as of last week, and their Aviator Jackets). We see bright pink or yellow/green knee-length skirts mixed with strong military style coats. We see thick black tights and another reinvention of the classic trench (military style). It’s the same Burberry we know and love yet it’s new, fresh, cool, effortless, timeless and ageless. I say “ageless” because you could be 10 or 110 and you could still pull off a any Burberry piece. Bottom line is, Christopher Bailey is an utter genius when it comes to fashion. May he NEVER leave Burberry! To see more of the beautiful collection visit Style.com.
Although I love Burberry and always will for their effortless style and confidence, I believe not getting Emma back to do the A/W 2010 was a huge mistake! They even reported a massive sales increase with Emma as the face of Burberry! So I’m urging you, as fans of Emma and Burberry to campaign with me, if you will, to get Emma back in magazines and shop displays as the face of Burberry. Just look at these photos and tell me she doesn’t make a hell of an amazing Burberry model! To see more pictures of Emma with Burberry visit my Facebook fan page Emma Watson 411. For anyone who feels as strongly as I do about this, sign the petition. Thank you!
