Dress coDe 3 Yes, we know: Christo­pher Bai­ley, mega

BurBerrY boss, does it all as com­bined Chief Exec and artis­tic direc­tor at the Bri­tish luxe su­per–flag­ship. It is even whis­pered that he dic­tates the colour of in– house Post–it notes and the ex­act strength of the sharp, chic cof­fee served to pun­ters at his Shang­hai bou­tique. With his sum­mer col­lec­tion, the crit­ics quite rightly com­mented that Christo­pher Bai­ley seemed to be try­ing to step back from all that hy­per­ac­tiv­ity. Take one floppy hat, an alu­minium easel and a sketch­book to go off and sketch in the York­shire coun­try­side. Takes you back to what David Hock­ney has been do­ing re­cently, colour– wise: wa­ter–meadow greens, daf­fodil yel­lows, deep pinks, cardi­gans in old–fash­ioned mint bon­bon, “Bri­tish skies” blues, and the poppy red worn dar­ingly head–to–toe. A stand­out sil­hou­ette for a sharp, chic sum­mer, just like that cof­fee served by the staff in the bou­tique in Shang­hai.
