Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2015
If you happen to see plenty of fringes popping up in runway next season, you can safely point your finger at Christopher Bailey. Fringes took over every silhouette and accessory at Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 2015 runway. Fringes in mirror embroidered dresses and skirts, fringes in trench coats, fringes in stoles that were as large as blankets and fringes even on shoes and bags! I won’t be surprised if the eyewear designers at Burberry explored the possibilities of having fringes on the sunnies too. Okay, kidding. Or maybe we’ll see them soon enough.
The patchwork, patterns and prints from the menswear show was extended to the Burberry woman to create liberating retro pieces with bohemian flair. There wasn’t anything revolutionary. Suede patch work boots, suede fringes, mosaic patterned tops, quilted jackets, leopard prints, pom-poms or simply a combination of all the ingredients in just the right quantity. Christopher Bailey cleverly used the known and tested techniques in fresh and tasteful combinations to give uniquely distinct look to the label. This is easily among the best collection from London this season. Here are my 10 favourite looks from Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2015 runway:
