It was bonkers at Burberry. And I’m not just talking about the clothes. Sienna Miller, Gemma Arterton, Tali Lennox, Tallulah Harlech, Donna Air, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kanye West, Ellie Goulding and Sam Cam, each cut their own sartorial dash, glamping at the Perspex tent in Kensington Gardens. It was an unusually unsummery collection which is fine by me as it gave me some pointers as to what I want to wear right now.
My fellow frowers [that’s front rowers] have got it down pat rocking next season’s trends right now. So what are my tips? Jumpers with posh skirts. Still a trend come next summer so do snap up a fisherman’s knit and wear with a skirt that is suitably stylish. Florals? Who doesn’t have something floral lurking in their wardrobe? Hot for winter and even hotter come spring. Neon flashes. I know I’ve said it once, but for those alarmed by the trend, dip your toe in the water by investing in a skinny belt or bracelet. A flash suffices. Do not, repeat not, wear head to toe! Trust me. You’ll love it.
