Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015

Inspired by the graphic covers of poetry and fiction works from the early 20th century, Christopher Bailey took a bookish turn for resort.

Christopher Bailey took a bookish turn for resort, packing his Burberry Prorsum collection with knitwear and printed blouses inspired by the graphic covers of poetry and fiction works from the early 20th century. The bright illustrations featured made-up titles like “Winds & Showers,” “The Orchard” and “Explore and Adventure.”

Bailey worked with a particularly light hand, showing floaty silk dresses and lightweight cotton trenches done in dip-dyed motifs. A safari theme also appeared in the form of jackets and trenches with oversize patch pockets, as well as pencil skirts with jaunty rows of fringe that resembled bits of colored grass.

As always, toppers played a starring role, this time with cropped peacoats and Chesterfield overcoats often worn over gauzy dresses.
