London: Designers have been culling inspiration from the early 60s over the past few seasons, and Burberry Prorsum’s Christopher Bailey jumped on the bandwagon for fall with a collection dedicated to an icon of that era, model Jean Shrimpton. The show opened with an emergency-cone orange slim coat with slightly shrunken sleeves that perfectly evoked the era. Drop-waists for tulip skirts and dresses also called to mind the Mod movement. Bailey’s skinny flare-leg tweed trousers worked well with the sharply tailored outerwear, while buffalo checked blanket coats added rustic charm. The show closed with a series of black and white fur pieces that seemed more Cruella De Vil than Jean Shrimpton, but the playful mood still connected to the youthquake theme.
