Christopher Bailey for Burberry Prorsum is chic British retro renditions sans the outdated vintage stuffiness. The gifted designer’s inventive reinterpretations of old classics like empire waist dresses, pea coats, brass button sailor jackets, military frocks, circle skirts and leather trenches reek of a contemporary sensibility. Topped off by striped scarves, Beatles caps, suede gloves and messenger bags; these inspired creations (just right for boarding school aristocrats with a penchant for the sixties) make a blasé stylistic statement.

Opening his standing ovation caliber show with a simple floral print knee-length skirt in rust colors, paired with a navy blue tailored coat; Bailey explicitly asserted his bid for effortless composure. Quietly dignified, positively cool Burberry’s autumnal clothes are designed to set off a London youthquake. Discreet and unassuming at heart, ingenious and inspired in essence; these loop-n-bone toggle coats, Mongolian fur-trim jackets, and pleated chiffon dresses are the antithesis to ‘look at me’ garments emblazoned with logos.
