For the Spring 2009 Burberry Prorsum collection titled “Garden Girls,” Christopher Bailey was inspired by his own garden in Yorkshire and a Thames & Hudson book on eccentric Brits called Garden People.

From the washed-out colors and lived-in, slouchy-ness of many of the looks that came complete with bucket hats and capes, it would seem as though it has been a rainy season for Bailey’s garden.

That said, though the collection was somewhat heavy for spring, it had a wonderfully relaxed and cohesive feel to it and the styling, with beautifully bold necklaces, was impeccable.
