Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015: need to know

art inspired 3

Citing his inspiration as British handcrafts, watercolours, village greens and the books he’s been finding in flea markets, Christopher Bailey’s resort collection featured countryside-inspired colours along with safari detailing and feminine fabric bases.

  • British rural print references – “The magic and mayhem of British rain” and “Rolling fields for rainfall and exploration”
  • Mix’n’match oversize prints
  • Earth-inspired colour palette

lace 3

  • Dip dyed lace

Skirts 3

  • Mid calf pencil skirts
  • Raffia fringing, petals of rags, dip-dyed

giant sequins 2

  • Oversize sequins
  • Super-slim silhouette

Safari images

  • Safari influences  – bellows pockets and military shades of khaki
  • Oversize military buttons
  • Nipped-in waists with 40’s inspiration

USP: True to Burberry’s heritage, British influences are contrasted with feminine fabrics and surface interest fabrications
