Burberry 2016 Fall/Winter Collection Is More Than Just Eclectic
Last show before its direct-to-consumer model begins.
Burberry‘s Fall/Winter 2016 collection was more than just about the clothes. The British luxury brand is on the brink of revolutionary change — come next September, the brand will be scrapping the traditional six-month interval between show and in-store stock for a direct-to-consume business model.
The collection itself had a distinct David Bowie ’70s vibe — designer Christopher Bailey described the collection as a patchwork of “The Mitford sisters, glam rock, military, wellies.” Indeed. Clothes were an eclectic mix of tomboy statement overcoats and more romantic maxi dresses in mod prints. A standout collection but there is already anticipation in the air for the next.
