The Burberry-collection for fall is a polished, high-shine medley of some of Christopher Bailey’s passions: military tailoring, the Mitford sisters, the Bloomsbury Group and some of his favorite art and music.
Bailey mixed masculine military overcoats with a battalion of glittering dresses. They came short with flippy pleated skirts; quilted or textured to resemble lightweight tapestries, or long with fluttery sleeves in a nod to the bohemians of Bloomsbury.
The designer also worked with lamé, Lurex and real metal yarns to give his silhouettes an insectlike iridescence. Sometimes, shine came from crystal embellishment and sequins, as in a cluster of minidresses that shone with a magnified flower pattern.
Outerwear — when it wasn’t doing military duty — came in materials such as bright green python, blanket plaid, technical down, high-shine leather and with details such as oversize toggles and fur.
