Burberry Pror­sum mor­phed the bo­hemian woman into a mod­ern cool girl.

To com­ple­ment his ti­tled F/W ’15 col­lec­tion of “Patch­work, Pat­tern and Prints”, Burberry Pror­sum’s Christo­pher Bai­ley suc­cess­fully re­flected his in­spi­ra­tion of quilt­ing, orig­i­nat­ing from Bai­ley’s home­town of Devon in the United King­dom, to high­light the typ­i­cal 1970s Lon­don bo­hemian cool girl. To add to a more thrilling at­mos­phere to the show, Bai­ley en­gaged folk mu­si­cian Clare Maguire, who sang songs to the likes of Ge­orge Harrison to Joni Mitchell, in­fus­ing his col­lec­tion with a ma­ture and dark vibe as the mod­els strut­ted the run­way. This was jux­ta­posed by the earthy and softer tone of the col­lec­tion’s col­ors, which ranged from brown, indigo, teal to deep yel­lows, pinks and pur­ples. What re­mained the fo­cal point of the col­lec­tion was the use of tex­tures, pat­terns and patch­work to evoke the in­tri­cate de­tails of his de­signs of clothes and ac­ces­sories to high­light Lon­don in the 1970s. Bai­ley fea­tured cro­chet and fringe on coats, bur­gundy vel­vet flo­ral, front-slit dresses and suede over-the-knee boots in earthy cam­ou­flage patches, fringed booties, soft an­i­mal-print bags and coats and his sig­na­ture pon­cho in sev­eral pat­terns (en­thused from the sig­na­ture Burberry pat­terned pon­cho circa-fall 2014).
