Tilda Swinton Would Approve of Burberry's First See-Now, Buy-Now Collection
Burberry's new September collection might be available to buy now — and it's already been modeled on front-row stars like Lily James and Cara Delevingne, not to mention by Priyanka Chopra in W's October cover. But the show itself, for which Christopher Bailey took over London's Makers House Monday night, was a tribute to British style through the ages. There were ruffs straight out of a Shakespearean drama mixed with midcentury varsity sweaters and totally timeless trenches, a Burberry staple of course, featured on men and women alike. Fittingly, it was an homage to Virginia Woolf's Orlando, once played in a movie adaptation by Tilda Swinton.
