Looks like designer Christopher Bailey is only happy when it rains. The models in his Burberry Prorsum show came down the runway looking quite weathered. Their trenches, tight pants, and short dresses all appeared to be drip drying after a good soaking. Although some of the pieces will definitely work in all weather (like the pretty, slick dresses decorated with paillettes), the head-to-toe gray cloud ensembles would do well to be mixed with a little sunshine.
However, New York's now out of work financial analysts might be a good demographic for this collection. Their mood may match this mode exactly.
