London Fashion Week - Burberry Prorsum Fall / Winter 2012

Yesterday, I attended the BURBERRY PRORSUM Fall/Winter 2012 show across from the Royal Albert Hall. By "attended" I mean I hung outside of the venue, hoping to get some great shots. The temperature had dropped (it was just a little warmer than freezing), but that did not stop the invitees, bloggers, and paparazzi from showing up in their finest. Without an official invitation, you weren't allowed to get too close to the venue, a beautifully constructed white and cream tent with a transparent roof, but I still managed to get a few great snaps. After the show started, I watched a live stream from my iPhone, courtesy of BURBERRY on the nearby steps. Everything in the show, and I'm not exaggerating, was beautiful. More on that later. The finale of the show was easily the best of the week. A simulated thunderstorm aided by sprinklers that showered the entire tent. The models took their last turn under glitter rain and umbrellas. Life in London won't be right unless I have one of those umbrellas...

I loved everything about his outfit. The coat, the tie, the beard, the tattoos... I was strangely drawn to him...

There was a lot of this yellow going around. What was in the Grazia bag?
