Burberry Prorsum RTW Fall Winter 2009 2010
After a deeply personal narrative, Christopher Bailey returns to the foundation essence of the Burberry collection. Classic, yet distinctive outerwear. The design house's check is blown up into an oversized pattern on shirts and cashmere scarves. Plaids weren't the only thing altered proportionately. The cable knit weave was expanded and there's the familiar Bailey signature of lengthy cardigans and pullover sweaters.
Bailey's trip down memory lane also veers into some folksy territory in the form of knit cumberbunds. Some chances are taken but the theme is clearly revisitation. It's a traditional collection and certainly an apropos direction at the present.
