It is one of those events that just has its own rhythm and choreography, regardless of season. There’s the expansive tent erected amid Kensington Gardens, the traffic-stopping crowds of guests and almost as many paparazzi waiting to capture the current celebrity-in-attendance (this time it was Harry Styles, Alexa Chung and Burberry campaign face Sienna Miller). There was also the emotive musical crescendo building up to the finale of raining confetti, or as it was today, petals. It’s a guaranteed megawatt experience on all levels, but the thing that sustains the continued if not increasing excitement around the brand is Bailey’s endlessly versatile and savvy way of remaking Burberry’s iconic ingredients, while adding more on the way.

The trench coat, this time spun into sugary pastels, made a softer, stud-free return, flung over delicate see-through lace. Whipped up in a palette of dusty pinks, eggshell and milky blues, Burberry’s new theme seemed to focus on making the old new, including crochet skirts worn over granny panties, these ones made from satin. As the collection progressed, the lace gave way to polka dots and stripes, and later to altogether purer shapes, sprinkled or held together by crystals blooming into giant colourful brooches. 

The closing look of a transparent waterproof cape worn over a lacy pencil skirt, both showered in jewels, constituted the perfect illustration of Bailey’s talent for mixing unlikely elements into a stellar concoction. Complete with instantly covetable accessories like macaroon-coloured sandals and butter-soft sheepskin clutches worn crunched or folded, it was a collection brimming full with desirable pieces – just how Bailey likes to serve it.
