London: Burberry’s Pre-Collections are always more focused on the actual clothes rather than the spectacular show one would usually expect from the brand and this season was no exception. Christopher Bailey made an impression with varying textures and structured yet ladylike silhouettes – feathered animal print, shearling zebra intarsia, macramé lace and patchwork engineered lace with incredible intricate details were the main statements across the whole collection. Lace, macramé and the feathered animal prints were layered and patched on sensual body hugging shift-dresses, while versions of beautiful slim evening gowns gave more strength to Burberry’s presence on the red carpet. The brand signature trench coats were structured and cut in clean lines moving away from last seasons embellished bohemian aesthetic. Nevertheless, some boho came through via a dark trench with Aztec-like ribbon embellishment, a poncho and a to-die-for pale green lace dress – a covetable collection. – Christa Kaufmann
