Burton described the collection as shapes and patterns that would organically "explode" as the show reeled on. So the first short, shaped skirts are the "pods," then they began to open out, first into cherry blossoms , next into "doilies", and finally fur pompoms. Then the pods exploded, like puffballs, into extravagantly shaggy shapes in goat fur, ostrich feather, or Mongolian lamb. Their shivering undulation evokes another organic association like anemones swaying in the tide.
Here are some looks that I selected from the collection.
I don't know about you, but after I've seen the clothes, I completely get what Sarah Burton meant when she used the word explosion to describe the collection as it progressed. I imagine a sea anemone's transformation from small pods as it slowly blooms and then it retracts and then it blossoms into it's full blown appearance.

Anyways, the ones that I love the most are the Purple Tiered Dress, the Red Ball Gown, and of course the finale... The Black Mermaid Dress with Tiered Sleeves.

Since I can't afford these functional pieces of art, I guess for now I'll just have to settle with my sleeveless fur coat from Mango as I roam the streets of Bonifacio Global City. ^_^
