Trends come and go but prints are here to stay this Fall. Taking cue from their menswear collection in January titled A Painter’s Journey, Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey takes the lead with his Fall/Winter 2014 womenswear range that features many of the same painterly characteristics and stand-out brush stroke prints.
These prints cover the classic Burberry trench coats reinvented in chiffon, while watered down hues are accompanied by accents of rich aubergine and forest greens. The choice of printed fabrics speaks of Bailey’s international outlook for the collection, as does the light weight of some of the ensembles, which suggests that winter could be absolutely anywhere in the world. Clashing prints and textures rein supreme as Victorian lace dresses are combined with printed blankets that take influence from Lesotho tribesman, and heavy shearling jackets add a cozy feel to diaphanous chiffon dresses. Bailey’s use of scarves belted at the waist will be a trend to watch for in the upcoming season, so if head-to-toe print is too bold for you, this is one way to still rock this look.
