When it Rains


Last year, England endured the worst spring and summer season since 1929. With an August downpour of over 40 percent higher than average, most designers were rained out, except for those who produced raincoat and hats, like Burberry. Christopher Bailey’s responsive to all the rain?  His collection “Garden Girls,” inspired by women that are never daunted by a bit of mud and rain.  Palettes of ochre, browns, and beiges are juxtaposed by untidy and scruffy resilience. Fashion has never looked so rough around the edges.
