Burberry - Pre-Fall 2008
(NEW YORK) Christopher Bailey's pre-fall collection for Burberry brought together a sense of tradition and brand heritage, not to mention London fog. "This season the collection is a more eclectic and elegant evolution of Burberry," said Bailey, noting the luxury elements of the brand's archival history referenced, elevated, and given a polished perfection. "The mood is modern and distinctly British with an authenticity and a whimsical sense of irony."
The trench played an integral role this season, with purple, red, grey, black, and metallics dominating the color palette. Belted and cinch-waisted coats and dresses created long lean lines throughout, while ruched eggplant dresses paired with a belted wool peacoat and an eggplant ruched parka atop tailored suitings were a unique mix. Flowy shirts in soft chiffon were paired with constructed jackets in edgier materials like metal-injected leather, and paisley and thorn prints. A patent shearling was a modern luxe take on a classic.
Lace, velvet, and a variety of furs provided an interesting detail to a strong range of textures and fabrics including wool, tweed gazaar, bonded crepe, twill taffeta, satin crepe double duchesse, mélange, flannel, tailored wool, charmeuse, cotton satine, felt, and lurex for shine.
