Let it Rain and Snow

Let it Rain and Snow

>> I don't need multiple Burberry Prorsum black trim plastic rain capes in uniform formation as seen at the magical finale of today's A/W 11-12 show.  I just need the one thanks for me to easily wipe off ketchup stains, bird poo and other clumsy disasters that ofen occur with me.  Ta very much! 

P.S. Ouch at the ¬£795 pricetag but kudos to Burberry for getting it up online as soon as the show ends just to make the whole wanting experience even more painful.

    there’s a similar one at topshop probably not as cute but a much nicer price tag

    these do look painfully cool, why oh why do they have to be so expensive?

    Wow that is one hefty price tag though if I owned that cape I guess I’d wish for rain a bit more often than I currently do.

    I’m still too traumatized by the French grannies in the 80s with their clear plastic trenches to feel safe here. I see the cuteness, but still I get mixed feeling. Or rather, I would get them at 10% of the price. At 800 quids, it’s just: are you nuts?

    I love that Burberry used real “rain” on the runway. That’s the way to put on a show!

    I live in the rural countryside, and I think sometimes my family despair when we go for walks and I emerge wearing a below the knee lace skirt or an ‘impractical’ vintage coat along with my wellies – so something like that rain cape would serve me well! I feel its got more than a hint of great-grandma meets Twiggy. However, until it’s affordable to me, I’ll have to stick to a bog-standard rain coat.
    I really liked lots of the elements of this Burberry collection, such as all the bow details and gorgeous structure of the pieces. Oh and of course the colours!
    I saw you several times at London Fashion Week, and wanted to stop and tell you how much I liked your blog – mainly because it is so well written, and also because your approach to style is truly individual. However, you looked like you were on your way to a show, and I didn’t want to stop you, as I know it can be quite hard to make your way out of Somerset House if there are a lot of photographers and people around!
    Oh and thank you for your reply to a comment I made a while ago (about Christopher Kane). I’m slightly disappointed that I haven’t (as far as I know) come across a fashion show this season titled “The Queen on crack” or something along those lines – I was hoping that a third reference to monarchy-on-intoxicants might have turned the whole thing into a trend!

    Wonderful item and excellent suits!
    I think I will call this season Burberry Prorsum my favourite!
    Thanks for sharing dear!

    oh, this little transparent thing is really too cute. the price is not 🙁 but yes, it has written “susie bubble” all over it. 🙂

    I love your pics of Burberry but I don’t like the overal show, it was too classic and looks like a “copy” of the menswear one 🙁

    reminds me of this little beauty on Opening Ceremony!

    That cape looks so hot, but the price… aiaiai. But I think Zara will make something similar anyway, it always does.. So nothing to worry about!

    That is such a great idea for the runway!! The colors used reminds me of this Bensoni Coat http://findthatstyle.com/item/28704

    You know I think Burberry has lost it, Aquascutum all the way! This was literally the only thing I picked up on and tbh I felt it looked very vintage looking… Still think that it looks great despite its questionable inspiration (and price tag!)

    My niece wanted her “sign in” to be a scrapbook page so I used the “ruled” patterned page within this pack and created this 12 x 12 layout as the companion for a two page spread.
