Hyde Park tends to be the go to place for summer concerts in London, but Christopher Bailey placed a live orchestra center stage and had his models circle the live performance by Alison Moyet in silk gowns, military inspired jackets, and back packs. ” We tried to forget about the seasons and did cashmere and silk coats, little dresses, high and low shows, and whatever else felt authentic and honest,” Bailey added after the show, “If it felt too glamorous, I wanted to bring it back down with a backpack.”
Although Bailey wanted to focus less on the season and more on functionality, the color pallet said otherwise, with hints pinks and yellows, along with floral patterns and a-line silhouettes giving this military, nonconformist chick a feminine touch. The lace, sheer fabrics, and ruffles on dresses, coats also complimented the underlying femininity in the collection as well. But one thing’s for sure, Bailey did a splendid job at pairing silk slip dresses with a backpack, look like they’ve always belonged together in any typical fashion ensemble, like a white t-shirt and jeans.
