Man, I saw a picture of this somewhere else and got excited cause it looked nice but now that I see it all I'm a bit disappointed I like the jacquard flower pieces and some of the pieces, but as a whole it's boring. Cut it in half and throw out the awkward cat sweater and it would be a little more exciting

At first when i saw the first two looks i thought it was an accidental repost because they look like pieces he's done before.
I know its pre-fall don't get me wrong but this is terribly basic and very bland, he's done such fantastic collections in the past that have been so wearable yet so wonderful (i.e. Fall 2007).
One thing i do like are the oversized bags, they're quite nice, particularly the crocodile one in burgundy in post #2.
He's definitely focusing on the business side too much, focusing on figures than actual desirable clothes, the color palette for this is so re-hashed it's unbelievable.

Christopher Bailey hasn't moved in a different direction in years, but I will never bring myself to hate any of his work because it's the most practical, beautiful, functional and comfortable stuff I've ever seen. He never makes anything undesirable. His menswear has never failed to captivate me. Those coats

It's very Burberry, so... No, it's not boring in my opinion.
Coats and dresses look amazing. I like the accessories too.

A classic collection. Not very innovative but with some great pieces.

Those desert boots high heels for women are beyond disgusting, they make the feet look so huge!
Btw, does anybody else see a Carine Roitfield -ish model?

^Now you've said that i can kind of see it, if she had dark hair it would definitely be Carine circa 2007 with the bushy eyebrows and dark eye-makeup.

Yeah, I must agree. I absolutely love Burberry and more specifically, the Burberry that has developed under Bailey's direction, but this truly feels like something we've seen before. Initially when I opened it I had to double take. I think it also has a lot to do with the way these are presented. Same models, colours, silhouettes, even the evening pieces are stuck in the typical silhouette Bailey explores when designing evening.
With all that aside, this will likely sell incredibly well. True to the brand and what people have come to love, but a much more classic and clean transition from SS2012.

i don't get hit with inspiration, which is sad since Bailey usually does quite well in Pre-Fall.

Bailey literally does nothing to his designs - he must just look at photographs of his previous designs and say "this in corduroy", "move these buttons to a drop-waist position" - he needn't do anything - it all sells.
The best pieces are the nudey coat with the form-following seams, the sort of zip-up puffa tailored jacket, and that gorgeous check fur.

^ Agree! And as for classic & lovely...I could wear every single piece (from top to toe inc shoes & bags). Utterly, wearably beautiful
