That 70s show: Bailey revisits the bohemian era with patchwork prints, fringing and suede thigh high boots
An evening well spent in the countryside during the 70s. A loving declaration to dream-like bohemia, soundtracked in true Burberry Prorsum style by a live acoustic performance from Clare Maguire, who wrote an original composition exclusively for the show entitled “Give Me.”
Wild and free:
This season’s free-spirited ‘Patchwork, patterns & prints’ collection resonated a sense of nostalgia. The brand’s signature trenches were given a touch of the flower-power generation – shown this time emblazoned with paisley and vintage floral prints inspired by Durham quilts. Animal and camouflage printed lace featured on folk-style dresses, while suede thigh-high boots were patterned with retro cut-out patches and fringe detailing brought Stevie Nicks to mind.
Burberry campaign stars Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn sat on the front row, while on the catwalk Edie Campbell and Malaika Firth led the hippie horde. This season, Burberry worked in collaboration with Twitter to allow users to use the hashtag #Tweetcam to trigger a camera to take a photograph of the runway, and have their shot personalised and tweeted back to them. The brand may have been looking to the past fashion-wise, but otherwise they remain firmly looking to the future.
