So far, this season is feeling an absence of color. Tough economic times call for a refocus on the basics. Nostalgic of Burberry’s history, Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey sent a collection of oversized coats down the runway. Discussing his collection after the show, Bailey shared with Reuters that he “wanted to go back to the DNA and roots of what Burberry’s heritage is about, which is why [he] did so much outerwear, so many trench coats, [he] wanted the Burberry check to be in a very strong way.”
Hopefully next season brings a very cold winter, or else Mr. Bailey is in trouble. Highlights of the collection included tube scarves, neck ties, newsboy hats, belted scarves, oversized knits and velvet evening wear.
