Now more so than ever, the fashion industry has its eye on Asia, and Burberry is the latest house to tout its continued expansion eastward. To celebrate the launch of its new Shanghai flagship, Burberry Kerry Centre, the British house invited more than 1,500 guests to an evening of interactive films, live music, and dancing. By now you’ve seen the Instagrams of Burberry favorite Cara Delevingne flying over the audience, umbrella extended like a modern-day Mary Poppins. But that was just the beginning of the festivities. British musicians Ed Harcourt and Paloma Faith performed. Of course, Christopher Bailey’s Fall ’14 Bloomsbury Girls collection had a repeat performance. And as for the boys, they were outfitted in the brand’s signature trenchcoats or neatly tailored suits and checkered scarves. Watch a video of them dancing here.
Aside from maybe a tiara, nothing heightens the glamour of a full-on evening look quite like a pair of gloves. Eye-catching gauntlets turned up on the Lanvin, Gucci, and Oscar de la Renta Fall runways. And at last week’s high-wattage Met Gala, divas from Madonna to Beyoncé to Paloma Faith covered up their digits with statement-making pairs of varying lengths. Kim Kardashian’s custom Givenchy number was the talk of the town, but what really piqued our interest was the gown’s built-in gloves, which prompted speculation that Kim was concealing an engagement ring (you know Kanye would go all out with a rock for his baby mama).
