I'm not crazy about it. The colors were off, the silhouettes were off, and I despised the owls.

It has England writen all over the show. And I love that

I agree with Ives927. This collection was absolutely over-styled to compensate for the lack of interesting pieces. We've seen all of these elements before; styling won't hide that.

This is such a disappointing show to be honest. Especially after last season when it felt like he actually doing something new, this FW collection seems like its lacking in creativity and originality.

Also, Bailey and his team really need to learn how to edit their collections. For the past few seasons (ever since they moved to London more or less) the presentations have been full of two many ideas / options / variations. His Milan collections seemed more dynamic and powerful; they stayed with you because they had a strong aesthetic. These London shows have ruined the label, for me. All I see when I watch these shows is celebrity and commerce. It is truly a shame that Burberry is going down this path.

I hate it. Too messy. I agree it's overstyled.

Wearable seems to be the word to sum this collection up, obviously when broke down, of course.

But I felt the accessories didn't look very Burberry-esq, I felt like they belonged at Mulberry... I do still lust after those gloves however.

Ditch those awful bows and I'm really liking most of this.

The owl t-shirt is beyond cute

I feel that when Burberry find something....like that drape/ruffle skirt....they have a million looks with it. That ruffled skirt is in 11 looks, 5 are the striped skirt, 17 looks have an Owl print top.....there are NO pants in the WHOLE collection.....and as previously mentioned it has been completely Over-Styled (like the past 2 seasons).

The oversized pockets are SO unflattering and there is the section in the middle of the show (with all the owl-t-shirts and ruffle skirts) where every look looks pretty identical...Look 15-18/22-25 all look the same with a different coat. I dont think he is giving enough options. There are 1000 alternatives of 1 skirt or one top..but nothing else.

Im a little disappointed.
