For Folk’s Sake: Burberry Prorsum Fall 2015

Feeling folksy for fall, Christopher Bailey packed his Burberry collection with all sorts of ’60s signifiers. He gave his specific shout-outs of the recent past — Bloomsbury Group, Bruce Chatwin, Lucian Freud — the (suede) boot in favor of a generalized yet impeccable artsy-craftsy, hippie-dippie, boho-loco vibe.

Bailey’s remix of that original music-festival look produced blanket ponchos, dense plant and floral prints, similarly biomorphic patchwork, paisley bandanna motifs, grassy faux-fur coats, and the house’s trademark trenches gussied up with loads of fringe. Woodstock was never like this.
