London: See-through plastic and short skirts were on display at Burberry Saturday as the quintessentially British brand gave itself a youthful injection, while Jonathan Anderson offered women a countryside-inspired "sanctuary".
Under the new stewardship of Marco Gobbetti -- formerly chief executive of French luxury brand Celine -- Burberry Autumn/Winter 2018 collection proved it was possible to expertly combine heritage with a dash of boldness and a hint of fantasy.
The usual audience of celebrities and VIPs -- from Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to it-girl Lennon Gallagher -- squeezed into the 18th century Old Sessions House to watch plastic-clad models strut down the catwalk in an array of colours and shapes.
The plastic, always see-through, came in a variety of colours, from antique yellow to pink and turquoise.
