Christopher Bailey did it again. For this collection titled “The Bloomsbury Girls”, he was inspired by the British decorative art of the Bloomsbury set – an influential group of writers, artists and thinkers who lived and worked in the Bloomsbury quarter of London and Charleston house in East Sussex.
Bailey’s Bloomsbury Girls came down the runway in silk day dresses cinched at the waist, long lace gowns topped with cropped shearling jackets and cashmere ‘blanket coats’. Pretty much every piece was hand painted – from dresses and coats to scarves and open-toed booties. Each model carried hand-painted, dome-shaped leather and suede bags. The show wrapped with all the models (led by Cara Delevingne) parading down the runway with monogrammed blankets draped over their shoulders.
