Wait, is this Haute Couture or Ready-To-Wear? I’m confused…
The deconstructive collection had it all, pearls, feathers, nylon, lace, knit, wool, you name it, Burberry had it.
If the brand wanted to tell us they can do arsty, they did.
The show began with a very daring trench coat, succeeded by shirts with Mucnch-like portraits, Basquiat-like faces on sweaters, Elizabethan ruffle collars, metal capelets and statuesque outerwear. The bags were outstanding as ever.

Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey found inspiration in Henry Moore, British sculptor, and with a little help from Moore’s daughter, he created this amazing avant-garde collection.
Although we are not used to see Burberry being this daring, I found it exquisite to witness a lot of British outerwear history in only one show.
But I only have one question, am I the only one who doesn’t understand and like the extra long sleeves trend?
