'It's like hearing a Christmas song when you are trying to work out in the gym.' That was my immediate thought when I saw the deliberate fake snow at the Burberry Prorsum show. It was unexpected, and it put me off balance. I had my fix of snow before Christmas, thank you very much. But anyway, that is neither here nor there. What is here and what was there today (as well as the snow) at the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2011 show were coats. Fur coats and my favourite trench coats. Some in neutral colours, some dark, some bright. All beautiful. Christopher Bailey sure knows how to design a trench. And a fierce heel, at that!
I am writing my ehhh, plea letter to him tonight. It will go something like this:
Dear Mr. Bailey,
Fantastic show, as always! Those trenches are a particular fancy of mine. Any chance of sending one over to a small town girl? I would be forever grateful.
From a very wishful thinker,
No point in being coy about it! Don't think it would work, though. I just have that niggling feeling....
