------- found Christopher Bailey backstage yesterday, being spun around like a bottle by his PR, who wanted him to squeeze in chats with as many of the encircling journalists as possible before the next show got under way. Since the Burberry Prorsum collection had a strong horticultural theme this season and the collection was full of lots of sensible gardening gear, we asked Bailey about the garden that inspired him the most. “I love gardening,” the designer said happily, “and I have my own little patch of green in Yorkshire, but for this collection I was largely inspired by Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst. For me Vita’s garden has all those romantic, feminine, and yet earthly feelings that I hoped to translated into my collection.”
