Burberry Prorsum AW15

Christopher Bailey brings wanderlust-ing bohemian Brit boys home from distant travels

Initial reaction: 

Glitter ball gap yah – or, as Christopher Bailey put it, “classically bohemian”. This was a well-travelled, artsy boy, in Indian-style mirror sequin suits, ponchos with supersize fringing, and with a jewel-coloured suede clutch tucked under his arm. He looked like he had discovered some opulent, (but thankfully, not moth eaten) tailoring, shearling and fuzzy coats in earthy hues in an attic in the English countryside. 

Instagram moment:

The finale, which (true to house style) involved a high-octane downpour. This time the ceiling exploded in a burst of glitter that lit up the runway like cascading light and drenched the boys – in their mismatched leopard and floral prints – in disco ball confetti.


British singer-songwriter Clare Maguire provided a melancholic soundtrack to the richly eclectic collection, with one track written especially for the show.
