Burberry Prorsum S/S 2010 / LFW

Christopher Bailey didn’t let down his fans. He celebrated volume and texture in this powerful collection, putting a sarilike spin on his trenches — and most other clothing — draping, knotting, twisting and ruching washed and distressed fabrics, including gabardine, chiffon, tulle and silk duchesse satin.

He knotted and twisted and built up the shoulders of trenches and jackets, putting a decidedly artsy spin on the power shoulder, and wrapped and draped tulle skirts around the hips so that they looked like swirls of icing. Cashmere knits with knotted shoulders twisted and bunched around the body, while ruffles spilled down the fronts and backs of trenches and snaked around the neckline of one cotton candy-colored dress.

Colors ranged from earth tones and mineral hues like copper, sand, and mud, mostly for the trenches, trench dresses and skirt suits, to sugary pastels, including lavender for a fur chubby and peppermint and lemon for the draped and knotted dresses.
