There were no genders or seasons in this Burberry collection that embraced “see now buy now”. A homage to Virginia Woolf’s Orlando was mixed with the brand’s history, culminating in the masculine meeting the feminine and the past the present with no distinction between elegance and practicality. The signature Burberry trench was completely reinvented whilst retaining traces of its tradition. Other outerwear included shearling jackets, reworked bombers, tasselled cloaks and a fascination for uniforms. Knitwear was worn with gigot sleeves and belts tightened at the waist. Landscapes were used as patterns on brocades and damasks alongside sweatshirts worn with a ruff and white shirts with jabots. For the evening, pyjamas and lace were layered over dresses to give a cheeky touch. Colours were autumnal: after all, this collection is available on the market now.
