Richard Gray and I in conversation, Christmas 2008:
RG: I’m definitely feeling the Burberry check again, it just seems right.
AM: Me too. I wish I’d bought the shirt, mind you, I’ve still got a scarf.
Fast forward to the Burberry Prorsum AW 09 show, and in some weird, trippy coincidence, Christopher Bailey went and showed the very same check as a lining in fur snoods. Odd and quite fabulous.
