Burberry Fall 2015 is a bold, bright, intricate collection that kept us enthralled from the very first look. Always a well-attended show (with Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne sitting front row, of course), the Burberry collections are an all-encompassing experience – from the set design to the music and the looks themselves.
Continuing the fringe trend we saw during New York Fashion Week, Burberry used so much color and pattern that our heads are still swirling with it. But it all completely works with that elegant, romantic feel that only Burberry can achieve.
A “collection”: a subjective and ideal ensemble of objects that reveal the profound traces of our character.
What is a fashion collection made of? It’s a multi-dimensional journey, facetted by experiences both immediate and distant. Shreds of discoveries, recollections transformed by memory, imaginative anticipation… Treasures brought back from unfamiliar lands or explorations into the intimacy of a wardrobe. A sentimental anthology of iconic images and ridiculous photos that still have primordial meaning. Essential references and other, more singular ones that belong solely to the chapel of our personality.
That’s what a fashion collection is. It’s an inventory that embraces everything: a solemn past, a fertile present and the inevitably dreamlike future. A collection is a travel diary. It’s an open-ended journey into the world that reflects the daring paths of the spirit. It’s a sentimental adventure made of scattered inspirations and great aspirations. And it has only one means of locomotion: intuition.
The intuition of a garment and the way it’s orchestrated are the key to style. Understanding the excellence of a basic — the better to take it somewhere singularly imaginative — will always be the best path. This collection is a proposition of style, an invitation on a journey about finding the momentum to transcend what we know so well in order to take it toward something we’d like to discover.
