The mood was different at Burberry’s second straight-to-consumer runway show. The plush carpeting of last September’s show was stripped and made way for cold concrete. Lights were dimmed and sculptures were positioned along the runway.
Sculptor Henry Moore’s distorted and often curiously proportioned works, inspired Burberry to explore exaggerated design details. Extended shirt cuffs, oversized chunky knits and a finale of couture capes are the obvious standouts from the collection.

Short-sleeved Lyocell Linen Cotton Garment-dyed Smock Shirt, $875
