What a surprise! Who would have thought someone would create a new way to wear and play with scarves and shawls. The Winter 2014 Burberry show was a lovely trip to Bloomsbury portraying an artist’s muse. Longer skirts, hand painted jackets, tapestry bags and an array of printed shawls. Visit the www.burberry.com site and you can see the whole show complete with piano and Paloma Faith singing at top screech. The Boho vibe is very London and it has been around the block a dozen times but it can still enchant. Also it is a good counterpoint to the minimal and stiff trend and it looks a lot better on the upper class girls. The traily scarves are huge, fine and secured front and back with a long narrow belt.
I know it’s for skinnies only, but none the less adorable for that. Doesn’t Cressida Bonas (photo by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair this month) just look young and so chic. The Burberry kit will cost a fortune, but the Hoxton Hussies will get it together from the vintage shop and mum’s stash of YSL shawls from the 70s. Then it’s off to the Country for the weekend.
