BURBERRY IS BACK (AND IT FEELS NEW, TOO)

Burberry presented its second see-now-buy-now collection amidst a fashion world that continues to try to settle into a solid business model. Since this concept sells clothes right after the runway, the garments have to be presented according to the season we are currently in, unlike the traditional fashion system. For Spring 2017, Christopher Bailey took inspiration from British sculptor Henry Moore. A more neutral color palette was evidence of such idea, along with asymmetric cuts and more deconstruction between pieces.

The brand has transformed itself in so many ways. Bailey's main inspiration for the show, Moore’s sculptures, had always been a part of his life, which is why the clothes felt personal and nostalgic. Artsy prints, beautiful knitwear, usual trench coats, and revamped sweaters are a few of the dominant trends used here. Denim played a crucial role here, something that has been extremely rare for to make an appearance in Burberry. This season certainly took another direction with a dreamy, artistic, personal, and functional collection.
