The look Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey called this his “Shrimpton collection” after the model and 1960s style icon Jean Shrimpton. Outerwear with a swinging 1960s influence starred, with open collars, fur accents and skin-tight flares.

Key pieces 1960s-style db swing coats with dropped shoulders featured military epaulettes and doubled-over collars, while chunky heritage fabrics were fashioned into oversized cocoon coats. The Burberry trench was updated as Bailey made slightly padded versions, giving it a new comfort-led silhouette. Most interesting was the cable-knit coat, which cleverly used wool on outerwear.

Commercial appeal Every coat had appeal and wearability. But Drapers wanted to see what was going on underneath those coats: the kick-flare trousers were a strong new direction for the brand.
