    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.

    Godspeed Christopher...

    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.

    Brutal honesty.

    I agree.

    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.
