Burberry Prorsum - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Those seeking relief from the narrowest possible silhouettes currently assaulting Fall runways found plenty to love at Burberry, where designer Christopher Bailey looked to those Bloomsbury brainiacs for throw-on coats, cozy cardigans and slouchy silk dresses. In true Burberry fashion, outerwear was key, with trenches and shearlings warring for equal runway time. Sturdy, heeled boots and fur scarves kept it modern. Overall, though, Bailey's retro take on dressing is more modern than some of his contemporaries, especially when comparing a '30s vintage with the '80s.
