ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Designer Christopher Bailey sent his models down the runway in an explosion of rainbow-colored metallic trench coats as part of his latest spring/summer collection for Burberry. Models strode the catwalk in corsets, pencil skirts and sleek silk dresses in raspberry pinks, emerald greens and sapphire blues, laced with a metallic edge. Bailey and his creative team looked back into the Burberry archive for inspiration for the season's designs, including capes and corsets. "I don't know if it's about confidence but it's about believing in the heritage, believing in the team, the vision and trying to make sure that we're doing something that is exciting, and that makes people smile." The iconic Burberry trench coat, a staple which reaches back to the company's foundation, appeared in a variety of different forms. Classic styles were covered in colored metallic lace, capes came in both long and short versions and cropped jackets came with boxy shoulders and slim silhouettes.
