This season’s runways have been heavily dominated by a resurgence of style originated from 1968-1972, and the Burberry FW15 collection is no exception. The models strolled out as if Rodeo Drive were actually at the rodeo, one by one to the tune of some dark but delicious hues. Purples, blues, everything sliding down the winter colour palate seems to work surprisingly well with the traditional earth tones of that era. We got two crazy ponchos, one in brown and one in the aforementioned purple, equally stunning while setting opposite moods for day and evening wear. Overall, the tonality of colours seemed to slip into the late-season almost seamlessly from the the grouping seen in the Spring/Summer 15 collection—that line employed pinks and yellows but also leaned heavily on purple, blue and green for its strongest looks. The Burberry FW15 collection also worked best when it clashed more; the flower patterns are eye-catching and sit particularly well with the horizontal partitions in the dresses. There’s no proper trench here, but Burberry FW15 has done just enough to keep you from missing it.
