He’s still got it. After a pretty sizable bonus and promotion to what’s basically chief executive of everything at Burberry, Christopher Bailey turned out a slightly casual collection of separates for Spring 2015. It’s pretty customary to spy famous faces like Tinie Tempah (above), David Ganry, and Burberry alums like Jourdan Dunn front row at his shows (though it was Jourdan’s first time) if they aren’t walking the runway themselves, so we weren’t surprised to find them at this one.

The palette for the collection bounced around a bit. While footwear was mostly technicolor, the rest of the colors took on a darker turn with emerald green, soulful purple, and dusty brown. Sounds a little different for a spring collection, but then again so did the fabric variations–suedes, velvets and denim (used for jackets) among the options used.

The garments themselves were heavy on separates, as noted before. Bailey drew inspiration from Bruce Chatwin, a British novelist and travel writer, and the collection’s bookish imagery mostly evident (and potent for that matter) as vintage book covers printed on tees, while the overall vibe of a traveling writer was captured in easy pieces with large utilitarian pockets and leather bound journals for notes.

Small full-brimmed caps proliferated while accessories–body-sized scarves, bags, and the aforementioned leather bound journals–added a punch of print to the looks.

Which looks from the collection stick out to you most?
