Burberry Fall 2014–Showing off a softer side of the Burberry Prorsum woman, Christopher Bailey who now works as chief executive for the brand, presented a fall-winter 2014 collection with artistic influences. Bailey cited the Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex, England, of the Bloomsbury Group as inspiration for the collection. The place was home to artists like Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. In keeping with the artistic theme, the Burberry woman shows off her inner bohemian for fall with painterly prints in the form of draping scarves and dreamy silk dresses in a natural palette. The label’s signature trench also gets the artistic treatment as well with blooming flowers and loose, robe-like silhouettes.
The Reign of Burberry – For fall 2012, Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey continued to focus on the label’s own brand of elegance with a showing of modern outerwear. Using a color palette of neutrals with accents of olive-green, amber, plum and teal; the Burberry woman stands out with the season’s strong silhouettes and detailing. Tailored coats paired with flared skirts and ruched bow belts bring a flirty edge to the structural shapes. Rich fabrics of silk, velvet, wool and lace juxtapose the balance between elegance and coolness for the upcoming autumn season.
Burberry Bold – No doubt, one of the most anticipated shows of London Fashion Week, the Burberry Prorsum spring 2012 collection was unveiled underneath the helm of creative chief officer Christopher Bailey with bold color and shape. The ensembles came in a myriad of hues ranging from deep mauve to asparagus green. With structured parkas, pleated dresses and the traditional trench, the Burberry girl once again reinvented herself for the new season with eclectic prints and flirty silhouettes.
A review of the Burberry Prorsum spring 2012 collection will be posted later today, but in the meantime here is a behind the scenes look of the craftsmanship behind the latest season. Sketches of the sculpted parkas, military inspired jackets and trenches take shape as well as the sewing technique behind the garments.
