Burberry Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

We’ve come to look forward to anything Burberry offers, especially with Christopher Bailey at the helm. His spring collection for Fashion Week showed just what he was capable of, and is showing off more with his Burberry pre-fall 2016 collection. He chose to draw inspiration from the ‘70s with his chosen proportions, while leaving everything with an air of modernity. He gave a nod to the edge of grunge he chose to display for spring, but really played it down, letting the clothes speak for themselves in a way that will be perfect for streetwear. Of course, we are presented with some great outerwear for fall, and much in the classic Burberry spirit.

The garment that appears to be a cross between a classic trench and a cape has the most character in the collection, and also shows the ‘70s inspiration with the addition of fur to the top. The oversized cape has the tailoring we’ve grown to expect from the brand, while still appearing comfortable to protect us against brisk autumn breezes.

But we are presented with levels of comfort and warmth of all magnitudes, in order to accommodate for the season’s often unpredictable weather. This makes many of the garments much more versatile, since you could potentially wear one jacket from this collection for fall and winter both. Especially the thick or oversized coats.

Many of the jackets took looks we would expect from the brand and made them larger and slouchier, such as with the simple red coat with sleeve tabs. The overall design is simple, and something you would expect to find, especially in at a Burberry outlet, but Bailey chose to enlarge the sleeves and collar in particular, making it clear you wouldn’t simply be purchasing a large coat. Especially when layered, you can expect this will keep you warm in fall and winter; just by seeing it in pictures you can’t help but think of wrapping up in one yourself.

But the Burberry pre-fall 2016 collection has more to offer than just outerwear, and Bailey certainly doesn’t skimp on drama, either. The line has an array of skirts, pants, and dresses, and each outfit has its own voice, even those paired with extravagant or otherwise bold outerwear.

The flared plants are crisp with the distinct ‘70s quirk of concealing the heels with their length. This trend may not hit the ground running in the fashion world, but the nod to the decade is present and noted. The majority of outerwear is either referencing the ‘70s specifically or are designs that could easily transition between that decade and today. Some designs could easily be worn today without being recognized as an old trend because of their classic nature, but others are directly referencing the decade, especially with the use of fur.

But perhaps one of the best garments in Burberry’s pre-fall 2016 collection is the staple Burberry crewneck sweatshirt. You may not ever think of a sweatshirt like this for anything other than a garment for a casual outfit, but it was photographed paired with a knee-length skirt instead. It is clear Bailey is playing around with new trends and styling concepts, and he is still young in his role at Burberry, so we can only wait and see where he decides to grow from here.
