Agi & Sam put huge pockets and over blown back details on the majority of their outerwear. The pieces that didn't feature that melded a back pack in the garment. Sleeves on knits and jackets were long and drapey and the colour was often blocked when it wasn't a grey flecked with black on the knitwear. A single button deconstructed blazer looked very smart indeed and the ever present bomber jacket and roll neck were present here also, along with rubbery raincoats. The hair was spot on too in that effortless, not that bothered natural kind of way.
The fringing on the jackets and the detailing were great at the YMC show but so was the noise that went with a 20th birthday show entitled Parallelogram. There were fringed donkey jackets and both wide and cropped trousers throughout. The cardigan and poncho made standout appearances and the collection was dominated by a monochrome palette that was punctuated by a racing green and a navy.
Casley Heyford had a loud marble print that was a little in your face in amongst a collection that was loud as it was dressy. The words smart clobber come to mind. The volume was there in trousers and coats and jackets but the suiting was fitted and occasionally florally embroidered. An oversized shearling collar looked ostentatious until two looks came down the runway with a full military style brocade.
This was the first show in which Burberry had erased all sub brands, streamlining them in to one collective Burberry runway show. This made the show huge, even by Burberry's standards but it did mean that there was an acknowledgement of how younger people might be wearing the brand with a large logo printed on a fleece. Bombers, duffle coats and breton stripes were the shows bread and butter as was the tasteful use of the house check.
