“Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” is the kind of Burberry collection that embraces all aspects of Christopher Bailey’s unparalleled forward-thinking vision. For A/W16, Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London, and Burberry Brit have come together at London’s Kensington Gardens to form a single name: Burberry. That’s it. This new consolidation led to a nonchalant, yet classic infusion of motifs like high fashion tailoring and casual athleticism—each represented by the brand’s former derivative lines. Bailey believes it is a more accurate representation of the modern wardrobe, explaining that in reality, people don’t live within the binary standards of “smart” or “casual” labels anymore.

The collection emphasized versatile outerwear options, redefined for various occasions. From trench coats and tailored jackets, to tracksuits and bombers, it is evident that the two worlds were being blended. Burberry also held a subtle tribute to David Bowie, one of Christopher Bailey’s longtime fashion influences; accordingly, several models wore glitter eye make up.

The show was also streamed live on the newly launched Burberry app for Apple TV; that makes Burberry the first fashion brand on the platform! And with yet another strong collection, Christopher Bailey is still at the top of the fashion game.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
