Burberry Prorsum pre-fall 2014 collection is inspired by British style and features a lot of warm fall colors and typical English floral patterns on dresses and coats. There are also some amazing pieces inspired by London such as classical trench with ‘A to Z’ map print and T-shirts with drawing of St. Paul’s cathedral. To reach out to the global market, Christopher Bailey made this utterly British collection international and created some souvenir pieces with drawings of Chrysler building in New York, Shanghai’s World Financial Center and the Forbidden City in Beijing.
The collection is highly influenced by 19th century Arts and Crafts movement and is made from luxurious fabrics such as silk jacquards woven on traditional tie looms with details like velvet appliqués and tapestry brocade accessories. There are also few breathtaking full length dresses made out of over-embroidered lace and printed chiffon which are casually combined with cropped jackets.
