LFW SS16 highlights: Day 4

Burberry Prorsum SS16 show at LFW

Clearly targeting a younger customer for Spring, Burberry Prorsum’s collection felt much cooler and ‘street’-er than this season’s haute bohemia.

Rouge Pur Couture is one of my favourite lipstick lines and YSL has amped things up with this divine heart-embossed version.

It’s limited edition and arrives on November 4th in the UK according to British Beauty Blogger. (If you’re in the U.S, Sephora has them already to buy here and YSL has them to buy here.) Perfect stocking filler fodder, no?

I’ll admit I’ve been easing into LFW slowly for the first two days, but I’ve already seen lots to whet my SS16 appetite. Happpily, I’m noticing a lot more colour and joy, bringing us out of the #liveclean minimalism we’ve experienced for so many seasons, into something more energetic.

Such as Le Kilt on Friday. I like what Sam McCoach does as a creative director. Her vision is believable and all-encompassing, from the casting to the venue and set design, to the music. (more…)
