The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 show started yesterday to the backdrop of a water colored London skyline canvas in its new Kensington Gardens space.
This is one of my all times favorite Burberry Prorsum collections. The show Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 has once again won the . Christopher Bailey managed to illustrate the resurgence of the handmade in the age of the digital era, that is gathering force amongst London’s creative thinkers.
Bailey always champions a cover-up like the trench, the biker or the cape. The collection is a comeback of the perennially chic sheepskin, which came hand-painted with simple florals, leaves and abstract decoration. He has no rivals in the way he’s concentrated on applying every possible new technology to communicating Burberry-ness to the globe.
Last year, Burberry Prorsum even used the term “digital luxury” for their collection. But the meaning of luxury is shifting nowadays, to soft, warm and quirky things over the hard, glossy and tech-y. That’s why Bailey chose to get back to a charming sense of the eccentric, arty British-ness which distinguished the beginning of his career.
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 collection was named “The Bloomsbury Girls”, being inspired by the arty-crafty/literary cluster of people who inhabited the Bloomsbury quarter of London and Charleston house in East Sussex. Free-form hand-drawn flowers and foliage smothered everything from coats to dresses, from ponchos to the long scarves, blanket throws and booties.
The highlight of the collection was the introduction of The Bloomsbury bag, decorated with one-off hand-painted artworks, rug motifs and an eclectic collage of textiles and embellishments.
Christopher Bailey gave Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 collection the welcome flavor of the domestic, the cozy, the romantic and the very special.
