Autumn/Winter 2014 European Collections

Well it's been a while since I was really excited about an entire season of Ready To Wear collections, but I have been quite tickled with the current lot showing their wares in new venues and with new formats. I particularly like the closing sequence of the Burberry show with Paloma Faith. Watch it here on you tube-

Bringing live music into the runway environment always intensifies the drama. A few of the exciting innovations listed here...http://au.burberry.com/shows-events/womenswear-aw14/#/show-story/burberry-music.

With Burberry bringing the artistry of print back in to AW collections, we are lifted into softer palettes and more opportunities for pattern mixing and lovely contrasts between solid texture and strong modern print design…

 

Stay tuned for more commentary, I have to tell you about Dolce and Gabana…brilliant storytelling, old fable, new techniques...
