Gucciberry - no words
What a sad sendoff of a great tenure. Looks like he swallowed every little trend from Gucci, Vetements, Gosha etc and threw up this. It doesn't even look like Burberry, or him.
Wow this is genuinely bad.
what kind of gucci with a sprinkle of scott's moschino and a pinch of demna is this???
how do you go from spring 2017 (so beautiful and austere) to... this???? i don't understand
What a sad way to say goodbye, it's a collection which is clearly influenced by the designers of the moment (Michele, Gvsalia).. I wish he had produced a remarkable and personal last show.
The only thing I liked about the collection was the set and the music.
I find it really odd that they've not only reissued pieces from his tenure, but from the 80's too. This should have been about Christopher Bailey, not the house.
What I was really hoping for was a return to his minimal luxury that he did so well in the 00's that was so well received back then and would still have been now. I also wanted to see a return of some of the faces he made happen due to his support at Burberry, I know we can't really talk casting here but I wanted to see Stella T, Kate etc. A real time capsule from his time at Burberry, but this was a pure mess. I'm shocked this is how he's sent himself off.
I really wanted to invest in a few pieces from his last collection like I am doing for Kim at Vuitton but I'm honestly finding it so difficult to part with my money on this mess.
I will focus on the positive and mention how beautifully staged the show was. The lighting was fantastic, the music was upbeat. I really appreciate that there were obvious nods to the LGBTQ community; knowing Christopher's story makes it hard for me not to be emotional about it.
It´s like he turned Burberry into a luxury fast fashion brand, just following hot trends from other designers, and refusing to create or add new things.
He saw that Gucci was selling like mad; and he wanted exactly the same. And it didn´t mind if Burberry´s image was lost in the process. Money is money!
I remember his first collections, and they look like millions of light years from this last one. It feels like two totally different designers. Instead of an evolution, I see a degeneration.
The hommage to LGBTQ community feels desperate. And I am saying this as a gay man.
As a show (setting, music etc), it was a beautiful goodbye, but the clothes are so awful...
Now can we start to receive news about who is gonna replace him, please??
I'm slightly disappointed the execuation, I thought this would be more self-referential.The set, lighting, and music was terrific though.
I echo everyone else's sentiments. A beautifully staged show, and a horrendous trainwreck of a collection. I really do appreciate the beautiful and sincere homage to the LGBTQ+ youth though.
I applaud the sentiment behind it, but the collection itself is atrocious. He tried so hard to make it "cool" that it looks contrived. Look at F/W 2010--his last good collection IMO--and you can see how try-hard this offering seems.
