RAINBOW CATWALKS IN LONDON FASHION WEEK
What a fabulous rainbow colorful fashion week is happening again in London! As we noticed that bright colors are back on track from last season, this season is even more colorful. Thinking about phenomenal Burberry’s fashion show where rainbow is not only all over the model’s clothes but in the air as well. For the February 2018 runway show, Burberry has collaborated with United Visual Artists on a re-imagining of its installation ‘Our Time’, as well as a special new piece for the February runway show finale, named ‘Spectrum’. The idea of having a lights installation is probably inspired by bright and bold Lumiere London light festival. It happened last month and had a huge interest. The catwalk show is a spectacular ‘good-buy’ from the departing chief executive of Burberry – Christopher Bailey.
“Time. Reflecting the past. Celebrating the present. Heralding the future.A patchwork of characters and identities. A riot of color. Traditional techniques re-imagined to create exquisite new finishes; rediscovered pieces made new.”
The February Collection 2018 Burberry
Rainbow theme is also presented by another obsessive English brand – MULBERRY. Famous with their leather bags, this season’s spring/summer 2018 collection is really impressive! The brand presents new modern looks for sophisticated as well as playful young ladies that are willing to invest in quality and timeless styles. As the head designer Johnny Coca said: “Your bag is your house!” and I’m absolutely agree with that. The main focus this season is in practicality and a need of a bag for any occasion and lifestyle. They are inspired by archetypes of Englishness – pastimes from another time, translated to the present. We have seen this inspiration in the clothing collection through one color suits, rich embellishment dresses and ruffles shirts.
“I want to communicate something playful, poetic, intriguing and unexpected.” Johnny Coca
I think that the goal is achieved! Enjoy this spring/summer 2018 season with Burberry’s and Mulberry’s rainbow fashion and make it your own.
