Burberry walks on the artsy side this season. Hand painted trench coats and silks make for a collection suited more for the weekend than the office. Tapestry handbags and painted shoes bring a boho feel to this uptown British brand. Soft crepe with dainty flowers in muted tones resemble prairie dresses. There is even a Navajo influence provided by shoulder draping blankets, proving that yes, late ’60’s and early ’70’s trends can be made modern again.

Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Autumn Winter 2014 Collection

Tying the entire collection together is a scarf. Worn long and draped in front of the body, the scarf is pulled longer on one side and belted in place. This is a great option when deciding on how best to update your outwear next season, just add a scarf! When shifting to a more evening look, these scarves offer coverage to sheer lace designs.

A few simple menswear looks graced the runway as well. Tying in well with the womenswear, the men donned blankets and silk scarves tied over the shoulders; although netted tops seemed out of place. It’s always a pleasure to see what Christopher Bailey will send down the runway, but this season especially so. As CEO, he is taking Burberry to new heights.
