#LFW Burberry Prorsum Teaches Us the Birds & the Bees

Burberry Prorsum once again gave the internet the best seat in the house with a sprawling HD video of the Spring 2015 runway show, which was then promptly uploaded onto Youtube. As the video opens with a pan across a London innercity glasshouse, one can almost hear David Attenborough voicing over an introduction to the show, you see this season CEO Christopher Bailey gives us the birds & the bees.

Reference to the garden and it's insect inhabitants was clearly communicated in the form of iconic graphics and prints with INSECTS and FLOWERS emblazoned on jackets and trenches. Illustrations of various bugs adorned skirts and dresses in bold summer brights. However it was the more conceptual design elements that drove the message home. Fitted denim jackets and contrasting patent fabric on the sleeves, bust and pockets of garments gave the feeling of a segmented 'exoskeleton', while geometric textured seperates appearing as insect shells seen under the microscope. The real genius was in the use of tulle - sheer dresses now became delicate wings and the models colourful butterflies and moths.

Accessories are similarily bright and bold. Sneakers and utility sandals, handbags, clutches and rucksacks are outfitted in the collection's spring garden palette, many with the season's signature graphic prints.

As in the insect world, which of Burberry Prorsum's colours, textures and patterns attract you to your ideal Spring look?

View the runway video, shop the collection now at and look forward to next season at Burberry, PC Hooftstraat 50.
