MyMANyBags Top Picks From Burberry Spring Summer 2010 Womenswear!

After having had some time to go thru the runway imagery I received from Burberry's latest SS2010 collection...I made a little 'top picks' list of my own.

The new Burberry SS2010 Womenswear collection is all about shorter lengths, intricate drapes and reworked trenches..seemingly to let out a more youthful vibe for a younger Burberry girl:-P 'Twisted classics' as Christopher Bailey described his inspiration. Christopher definitely succeeded in making the familiar fresh and contemporary yet again.

Having dressed the likes of young rising stars such as Emma Watson, this is a great move to spread some Burberry love to a younger audience that might have not taken on to Burberry's more classic styles from previous seasons. The latest womenswear collection is a statement of sassy confidence while retaining soft femininity thru it's beautiful summery colour palette.

One of my most favourite part of the collection was to see the classic Burberry trench reinterpreted in so many varied ways. All over reef knots, knotted epaulette shoulders, braided details become part of the brands' most iconic garment. Washed treatment also adds character and a bit of grunge attitude. All these new reinterpretations contributed to new strong looks for a strong Burberry girl!

The pleasing summer fresh colours of the collection are also very 'delectable'. I can almost taste the sweetness of Spring Summer just by looking at these gorgeous pieces. A loop knot top with a braided bodice dress in limey yellow left a big impression on me. But what sends the collection to its climax is this one heavily textured silvery shortcoat that send many guests gasping their breaths. Indeed, a Burberry collection that ends London Fashion Week to a resounding success! Congrats to Burberry...job well done and thank you again for allowing me to be part of this once in a lifetime experience.

Enjoy the runway pics!

Watching online, I was blown away by the reinterpreted trench. Truly inventive and fresh! I love the coat with the ruched bottom.

And one other thing that caught my attention throughout the show was the belts! Military chic. Love. I have a newfound respect for Burberry.

Beautiful and intricate craftsman, but the twisted braid and straps will be very hard to pull off by ordinary gal ...:) anyway, it's never about wearability :)
