All eyes might be on Miami, but we’ve got London on the mind. For Burberry Prorsum pre-fall 2014, Christopher Bailey looked to the late 19th-century English Arts and Crafts movement, which championed handcrafted designs in the face of industry. We love how the Look 10 St. Paul’s Cathedral-sketch tee and jacquard skirt just hint at the Victorian, while the versatile black fur jacket feels very Bermondsey–London’s up-and-coming artsy-fashion district. It’s old-meets-new, and we’re calling first dibs. Also, for the record, we don’t really care if Bailey didn’t stitch each thread himself. Sorry, artisans!
