Designer Christopher Bailey says he wants to “celebrate the idea of craftsmanship” with this collection, which is loaded with rich sumptuous colors in tribal patterns and ikat prints, with beaded collars and crocheted trim, giving the whole endeavor a multi-cultural, heavily layered, textural vibe that looks gorgeous. Definitely for the young, bohemian types, this collection looks oddly more fall than spring; not just in the palette, but with the addition of raffia hats and sporty coats and jackets paired with sweaters. There’s a Missoni and Prada feel as well, in the prints and the slightly unusual shapes and proportions. We have to give Bailey credit here for diversifying the Burberry Prorsum look considerably.
