The metal flowers and buds clustered on leather necklaces are quite beautiful, and evocative of memories of early spring when trees begin to blossom. I admire Christopher Bailey for this quirky choice of milieu - I find it a welcome relief from the plain and boring white screen in front of which most fashion advertisements are shot.
The dip-dyed brown trench seems to be inspired by mud and water soaking up the hem, creating an ombré effect.
The textured emellishments of some of the garments are just stunning - I can only wonder at the craftmanship that went into their development.
