Resort 2015 - Burberry Prorsum

For the Resort 2015 collection, Christopher Bailey dived again into British culture and let himself be inspired by old books and poetry with their faded colors and hand-drawn titles which occurred on different pieces of the collection thematizing another very British topic: the weather. "The magic and mayhem of British rain" or "Rolling fields for rainfall and exploration" gave the collection a romantic touch.
The silhouette reminds of British movies of the thirties and forties in its lean and long shape which is even reinforced by the military details like the bellows pockets on a skirt or the military buttons on the sleeves. A softly tailored regimental coat and a nip-waisted safari jacket in cotton canvas continued with this theme. My personal highlights are the pencil skirts in the different prints and materials which can be combined elegantly or with more casual pieces.
