Burberry AW15: Free Spirit

I’m a little late to the party in writing about the Burberry A/W15 show, but I’ve been snowed under with work and only now can I raise my head above the chaos. Christopher Bailey’s last few collections have payed homage a past that one wouldn’t usually associate with the high end polish synonymous with Burberry Prorsum. The collection was entitled Patchwork, Pattern and Prints and payed homage to a freewheeling, late 60’s early 70’s bohemian attitude. These are clothes for the artistically inclined, although I wonder how many true bohemians can afford the sky-scraping prices of Burberry. The star pieces were the fringe capes and the red, ankle length patchwork dress . No doubt the high street will run pick up the ball – this look is easily replicated in a more wallet friendly format. I’m a fan of this collection; the salmagundi of sumptuous colours and luxuriant texture is right up my street. The vintage Age of Aquarius reference certainly isn’t new, but the classic free spirit has an eternal appeal.
