Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was featured in the most anticipated show of London Fashion Week.
Bailey – chief creative of Burberry – has said that it is a patchwork, influenced by what he really loves, like glam-rock music. The result of his exquisite work has resulted in a very retro-inspired and feminine collection, made up of baby-doll mini dresses with sunrise colour prints of geometric lines, seventies-inspired floral shirts, herringbone tights, fur coats embellished with animal prints, metallic dresses and big buckles.

The military heritage of Burberry continues with khaki tones, long masculine-cut coats, aviator jackets and double-breasted suit jackets.

In terms of accessories, there are hardly any heels this season. It’s all about punk-inspired biker boots; patent leather features in boots and bags, some of them printed with altered versions of the classic Burberry pattern.

The drama of each outfit in the show is heightened by a glittery or metallic touch, or bright colour pops on accessories and makeup. It is this drama, complemented by muted tones and Burberry’s signature pattern that, once again, makes the clothes this season’s must-haves.

Crab Tavern at Broadgate Circle

SEEN doesn’t often venture into bustling Broadgate Circle (just behind Liverpool Street Station) but feels she must amend this situation in the future. Amid a welter of eateries from the extremely fashionable to the cheerfully cheap sits the excellent Crab Tavern, which, like many restaurants in London manages to give local office workers and hungry travellers an inexpensive yet fine dining experience.
