Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Collection

Who would have thought a quintessential London Fashion house like Burberry would fit so well with my Bali state of mind?  Certainly not I—and especially over Christopher Bailey’s last several seasons which, while beautiful and even exciting at times, unarguably offered a structured urban feel.  However the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Collection, which showed Monday was a complete 180* from what I’d come to expect.

Yes, the collection includes fabulous jackets and cinched waists.  I even think I saw a classic trench somewhere in there (although I am sure it was painted!)…  but I think that is where the tradition ended and the fun began.

Burberry Fall 2014 1There were coats, shoes, and bags all hand painted with languid floral motifs.  Dresses topped with blankets sheer elements and heavy patterns alike.   And did I mention scarves?  There must have been a different scarf for every day of the month, each hung loosely around the neck and then belted at the waist (a look I plan to try with a beautiful sarong I purchased in Bali).  The whole collection was a buffet for the senses with a variety of pieces in a multitude of patterns.

The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Collection feels adventurous (something true to the Burberry house), as though the pieces have been collected during an around the world tour.  And the styling contributes to this feeling- as though favorite pieces have each been layered with a story in mind.

OB-Burberry 2Tell me- what do you think of Christopher Bailey’s latest offering?  Has the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Collection awoken the spirit of adventure in you?

  3. Oh they’re all gorgeous. Each wild and “flowy” and romantic and….gorgeous :-)

  4. Indeed!:) And it was my ever fav at the LFW, such a gorgeous line!:) Kisses! xo

  5. Their new things are just gorgeous and so far from that tartany look. Languid is a great word for them, I love the blue and teal one. These would be great for your climate!

  6. Thanks for sharing this! I’m a bit behind on checking out some of the shows. I LOVE this collection. The patterns and the way the fabric flows is so enticing. It reminds of something a more modern day grecian goddess would wear, if that makes any sense.

  7. I love Burberry and their designs get more gorgeous with every collection!!

  8. So dreamy!! This will translate nicely off of the runway!

  9. Aw, you already know my opinion… Now I just need to save a lot of money to buy those booties… I keep dreaming of them. :) One of my favourite Burberry collections – I think it wasn’t just about the clothes, but the feeling they gave, this joy, the worldliness and slight naivety as if some of those prints were kids drawings or folk art. x

  10. Love the African inspired patterns :)

  11. It IS different! It’s beautiful. I love the print. It’s soft.

  12. Yay for those last four photos. Love it all, especially the shoes and colors.
