A rainbow of colours and impressions for Fall/Winter 2018

A social message stands behind Christopher Bailey‘s final show for Burberry: it focuses on creativity, that springs from diversity, a topic that should be supported and not fought. A diversity that is referred to community – from here, his tribute to LGBTQ+ youth through a rainbow-coloured collection-, and a translation of it into an explosion of chromatisms, fabrics, shapes and backgrounds into a sparkling-coloured collection.

The fashion show was opened by the model-activist Adwoa Aboah, who was wearing a rainbow-covered skirt. Made of menswear and womenswear garments, the lineup mixed elements from formal contexts, as woolen twills and the iconic gabardine trench coats, with nylon parkas and urban-style hoodies.

Patchworks are rainbow-painted – of course – and declined in knits, leather jackets and anoraks. Variety is in unconventional combinations like oversized slip dresses worn over sweatshirts, homespun yarn embroideries over woolen sweaters, tie-dye prints on tank tops and floor-lengthed skirts, or camouflage patterns matched with crystal-beads.

Damasks are realized in red velvet combined with lightweight sheered fabrics. Faux-fur is declined in multicoloured intarsia and oversized silhouettes. For men, Scottish tartan kilts are matched with sweaters and shearling jackets.
