The creator's husband, the retired football superstar David Beckham, and the four children of the couple went as guests of honor on Sunday to support London. Fashion show. The former Spice Girl was among the big names on the British scene, alongside Vivienne Westwood, Burberry and Roland Mouret.

The two sides of the Burberry piece were reflected in the two adjacent rooms where the collection was shown: a room one show with comfortable and padded seats; the other, a large, raucous space surrounded by a climbing gym of the type that young children would use. "I thought a lot about England as a country of contrasts, from structured to rebel and free, and I wanted to celebrate how these elements coexist," said Tisci, who said he had four characters in head at the constitution of the collection: a girl and a boy, and a woman and a gentleman.The transition was obvious, the models ranging from street-style clothing – oversized casual jackets, metallic ornaments, revealing evening dresses, silver boots, fake fur, large red plastic sneakers – for subtle and timeless outfits with felted autumn colors.There were sometimes references to the brand embodied earlier, as a provider of beautiful traditional menswear. wore classic suits and ties, including a double-breasted lapel, and Tisci used the Burberry trench in a full and imaginative way. traditional and her checkered, and associated a number of sexy evening dresses to There were some eccentric touches, including an outfit underlined by a giant scarf that paid tribute to the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge who pays homage to "The time of the Former sailor ". his time at Burberry, a tradition that cherishes but refuses to be submerged. FAMILY AFFAIR AT VICTORIA BECKHAMThe first line of the Victoria Beckham parade has a younger average age than the VIP seats of other salons. The young designer, Harper, aged 7, was sitting on her father's lap for a hug as he chatted kindly with Vogue's American editor, Anna Wintour. Like everyone else, members of the Beckham family in the audience took out the smartphones to take a picture of Victoria Beckham. The designer said she wanted to channel "modern femininity" and cinematic drama for the collection and had in mind a particular image of the woman wearing her clothes. "She's okay but she's it was not really prim," Beckham wrote in his show notes. The result is a mix of feminine classics – tailored checkered blazers, tweeds, diamond sweaters, silky blouses perfectly arranged in pencil skirts – with eye-catching details like knee, lipstick open-toe socks red or leopard, or shiny satin stiletto heels with citrus, bright fuchsia and chartreuse.The trousers bottom bell, a style that the designer has adopted as a signature, has made its appearance. It was the same for the trend of checks, which seems to always go strong. One of the sets included a wide coat, trousers and a tote bag in the same brown plaid pattern. For the upcoming fall and winter seasons, her clothes are made of oversized shapes and male suits. Mouret, whose fans include Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, said she is interested in the proportions and style of the pieces regardless of traditional gender divisions. white double-breasted trousers and large boxy blazers were worn over silky, flowing robes. A loose-fitting plaid suit with a drawcord is paired with a casual lurex top. For those looking for an oversized garment, Mouret offers a huge fake fur coat that will certainly make the party pop wherever he goes. There are still many things that are traditionally sweet and feminine, however. Asymmetrical handkerchief skirts caress the calves and move beautifully with the movement. Strategically draped bodices sneakily reveal a shoulder and collarbone. The glittering metallic lurex adds luxury and the final look of the show, a pale blush dress worn under a matching faux fur coat, is crafted in a fabric so light that it floats like clouds. VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GOES GUERRILLA THEATERTThe great lady of British fashion, Vivienne Westwood, put fashion on the backburner on Sunday and turned her parade into a defensive against climate change, corporate greed and other diseases. Westwood has moved in this direction in recent years, but has gone into guerrilla mode for this latest show. It featured angry models who stopped in the middle of the podium to denounce the planet's problems, finding time to complain about artificial intelligence, robots, Brexit and so much more. The first model set the tone by announcing that the world would be dead unless something happened. done this year. The models warned, on a threatening and percussive soundtrack, that humanity would soon become deaf and blind and crush internal organs. A defender of freedom of speech wore a jacket covered with a slogan, claiming that it was to pay tribute to Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. In 2012, he applied for asylum at the Embassy of Ecuador in London to avoid extradition. A model with a microphone proclaimed "Hollywood has turned us into zombies". The model announced: "England will die of irony". The clothes on offer were clearly androgynous. Many male models were dressed in dresses, tops and skirts, but others wore costumes beautifully crafted with a distinctive drape and a very English look. Westwood is a punk-era fashion legend who apparently can not seem to be wrong with his legions of fans. She was greeted with adoring applause when she came out at the end of the show and sang that Britain could once again lead the way.
