Burberry, Tom Ford Lead London Fashion Showcase

By SYLVIA HUI

LONDON (AP) â¿¿ Bold looks at Burberry Prorsum and a much-anticipated show by Tom Ford brought London Fashion Week to an exhilarating climax Monday, packed with starry front rows and catwalks awash in a riot of animal prints, contrasting textures and embellishments.

Burberry design chief Christopher Bailey and Ford delivered the goods, but strong showings by Christopher Kane and Erdem â¿¿ both rising talents with an international following â¿¿ helped round out day four of the style event.

Ford said after his show that he wanted his autumn collection to express exuberance and color. Aside from rich, saturated hues, he also featured bold animal prints, which happened to also dominate Burberry's catwalk.

Kane, who was showing his first collection since luxury conglomerate PPR bought a majority stake in his label, unveiled an extensive, assured collection that included everything from camouflage and kilts to velvet and feather trims.

Meanwhile, Erdem Moralioglu delivered his usual elegant looks, though surprising some with a dark and moody twist to his typically delicate pastel floral dresses.

His collection was mostly black, though the different textures (lace, velvet, mesh) and layers kept things interesting. Floral prints and feathers peeked out under black organza overlays, while sheer black polka dot layers were draped over abstract yellow florals.

The designers were the last major stars to show during London Fashion Week. Designers including Vivienne Westwood, Mulberry, Preen and Temperley London had already shown their latest earlier in the week.

The event winds down Tuesday, as editors, models and bloggers prepare for more catwalk shows in Milan and Paris.

BURBERRY PRORSUM

Burberry's creative director, Bailey, has taken its classic trench coats on safari for a makeover.

In a catwalk show that drew actresses Kate Beckinsale and Michelle Dockery to its front row, the luxury British brand updated its coats with calfskin and mink in bold leopard and giraffe prints, cinched in with glossy gold belts.
