This silhouette is part of Christopher Bailey's latest fashion show for Burberry. Intentionally autobiographical, it tells the story of the artistic director's childhood and adolescence in central England during the 1980s and 1990s, with references to streetwear, music and rainbow print, evocative of Bailey's homosexuality.
Passage n°82 of the "Time" collection, it merges the classic trench coat with the zipped "Harrington" jacket, typical of the British youth wardrobe of the 1980s and 1990s, notably based on accumulation. It is worn on a long transparent tulle dress, itself placed on a t-shirt and an elastane tights printed with a graffiti motif.
