Enough about acclaimed prodigy Bailey. The collection was – to be forthright – a sumptuous series of Autumnal looks. Bailey – as stated on Men’s Style and more recently on Style Salvage – drew inspiration from the quaint oeuvre of L.S. Lowry who I’m not exactly familiar with but this did little in preventing me from thoroughly enjoying each idiosyncratic detail, each subtle quirk crafted by Bailey.
To be frank, I’m an absolute sucker for dark palettes and this collection has only reminded me of this penchant. Earthy[but also pleasingly chocolatey] browns, heady midnight blues and delectable burgundies and wines combined to produce, collectively, an unapologetic orgy of autumnal hues.
The cut has been remarked upon umpteen times already and although I’m currently middle-of-the-ground I can say I’m edging ever so slightly toward wholly adoring it…
…scrap that. I’m in love.

I am with Style Salvage on this one… I’m truly loving the mix of textures and a perhaps more ‘old-fashioned’ mood that Bailey has heralded…perhaps this will reflect in the womenswear too?

While I wouldn’t wear any of it, except maybe the last coat, I can appreciate what’s going on here. Is it time for me to integrate shinier clothing into my wardrobe? No…no it is not.
Chris Bailey continues to astound me. He’s really changed Burberry (for the better) esp. last Women’s fall!
“…an unapologetic orgy of autumnal hues” is so proper for this collection.Adoration.
#3 and #4 are perfection!Cheers!
