across the fields with Burberry

For Christopher Bailey, the title of his latest Burberry show, Town and Field, signified two worlds whose codes don't match. With the new fall collection he tried to built a unifying bridge based on contrasts.

Already for the pre-fall collection he found his inspiration in the pre-WWII thirties. In a very British manner the style was reflected in strict silhouettes, honest fabrics, and modest details.

The focus lies on tweedy tailoring. Jackets had harder, extended shoulders and nipped waists, sometimes with a bell peplum. Another key piece was a pencil skirt with a big diagonal ruffle.
The dark color palette accompanies the story: sage, bracken, lavender, charcoal, pewter.
