The World of Burberry fashion show, held this past weekend at Saks Fifth Avenue at the Tysons Galleria in support of the March of Dimes, was a raging success in more ways than one. Featuring a host of celebrity models and a range of glorious fall fashions and accessories (and even some adorable Burberry-themed cupcakes courtesy of Georgetown Cupcake), the event raised money for an important cause and shone the spotlight on what Burberry does best: classic, elegant styles made to last a lifetime.
From start to finish, the show was a feast for the fashionable senses, replete with luxe winter coats, cozy scarves and more stunning handbags than a Purse Page reader would really know what to do with (not kidding, ladies). The glamorous Burberry Nova Studded Star Check Bag, seen above, brings a twist to the label’s iconic pattern with a smattering of well-placed studs on the corners and along the top. It’s edgy glamour at its best – and carrying it is the perfect way to bring just a hint of rocker-chic to a conservative ensemble. Shop at Saks.com and grab one for yourself!
Absolutely essential no matter what time of year it might be, the Burberry Nylon Tote is available in a multitude of colors that run the gamut from gutsy red to staid brown. This all-weather, all-purpose tote sounds great on paper, but it absolutely outdoes itself in person. It’s soft, spacious and worth every bit of its $250 price tag. Despite its lightweight construction, it’s also exceptionally sturdy – something that can’t be said for most nylon bags. If you purchase just one bag this season, this might well be the one for its practicality, functional design and great color range. Oh, and it’s lined with Burberry’s fabulous check print. What could be better. Shop at Saks.com for yours.
Other highlights for fall include the fantastic Burberry Pilgrim Leather Mini Bag, a snazzy little holdall that simply demands you use it to add a bright pop to your rich, dramatic fall wardrobe. Not only is this boxy little thing worth a second, third and fourth glance, it boasts just a hint of decadent sheen – enough to change the face of your entire look in a flash. Shop at Saks.com for yours, available for $995.
