Burberry designer Christopher Bailey clearly wants to move the brand into a lighter, more modern direction and with the heavy use of lace and sheers in this collection, as well as the retro-trendy pastels, he’s clearly staking his claim. But maybe we’ve just hit the wall on the granny panties or maybe it just doesn’t work here, but the combination of panties and pastels, rendered in some fairly buttoned down, old-school-looking shapes, just doesn’t come together for us. The last half of the collection, with it’s bolder shapes and colors, and the sudden infusion of stripes and pattern, is far more appealing to us. More of that, please, and less of the see-through granny clothes.
