Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Autumn / Winter 2014 - The Bloomsbury Girls

I have to admit I have had this scheduled for weeks now and never got around to it, I even entertained the thought of not posting at all because the date was well past but the collection entitled The Bloomsbury Girls which was revealed Feb 17th at London Fashion Week was too major not to share. The collection was free spirited with stunning details such as the hand painted boots and belts. Cashmere, silk and embroidered tulle lace were among the luxurious fabrics used while the colour palette was made up of pale raspberry, olive, sand, and blackcurrant. The softly tailored trenches and suede overcoats were painted with flowers in broad brushstrokes and filmy tea dresses were layered with long shawls tucked into belts and horse blankets and carpetbags served as finishing touches.

According to the press release: “The collection takes creative inspiration from the British decorative art of the Bloomsbury set and Charleston, the country home and meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals who formed the group.”


Runway made to Order
Exclusive hand-painted pieces from the runway will be hand-made to order and can be personalised with a name or initials for delivery in nine weeks – allowing customers worldwide to be the first to own one- off pieces from next season’s collection. For Burberry fans in Barbados, you can visit Burberry in the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, St. James for some of these exquisite pieces and more Burberry fashion.
