CLASSICS DONE KITSCH
Milan: When mining the archives at Burberry Prorsum, designer Christopher Bailey has a lot to work with, with the classics of this legendary label providing a solid foundation for any modern innovations. This season he titled his show “I Heart Classics” and riffed on what Burberry does best – outerwear. The silhouette was skinny but squared at the shoulders, making cashmere trenches and double-breasted suit jackets appear extra long and lean. Bailey’s own cool stamp came via touches of animal print, a see-through rubber material and kitschy intarsia heart repeats as well as of-the-moment military styling, all of which added up to a consistently charming, easy-to-digest Fall collection. —Nina Stotler
