Raise Your Love

Burberry is a brand that is so British you have to love it. It's heritage certainly helps. We all know that Burberry helped design the trench coats used in war, but did you know, that the men who made the first flight from Britain across the Atlantic ocean were suited and booted in good old Burberry. They really do have quite a heritage (if you want to learn some interesting facts about their history have a looksy here). 

Anyway, before you get all excited that I have invested in a Burberry trench coat or something similar, I haven't. Not rich enough for that yet. The reason I'm talking about Burberry is because, as you probably saw, their Autumn/Winter 2014 show was loaded with models wearing scarves that were cinched at the waist with a thin belt. I've stolen their stylists idea and used it for a summer alternative with some denim cut offs and a plain tee.

The one thing I love about the Burberry fashion shows is that unlike many, they have music played live by British singers, not the average pop singers either. They often choose singer/songwriters that are more up and coming rather than the ones of the moment. At the Autumn/Winter 14 shows they had Ed Harcourt, Rhodes and Paloma Faith performing. 
If you fancy a listen to the live recording (at the Burberry show) of Rhodes song  Raise Your Love, here you are - RHODES – Raise Your Love - Live From Burberry Fashion Show
