The Innocence Project

"Burden, who died in 1914, also appears to be the prints-wearing naïf du jour as designers collectively embrace a back-to-nature innocence worthy of Rousseau. On the ethereal spring runways, especially at the influential, Art Nouveau-themed Prada show, it was hard to see the forest for the nymphs. Many of the season’s delicate key looks — from the exuberant blooms at Dries Van Noten to the Liberty prints at Junya Watanabe to the gossamer-fine fabrics at Roberto Cavalli that revealed everything and nothing — owe a debt to Burden’s blushing but knowing milk-skinned sisterhood." (Horacio Silva) 

"There is a romantic freshness and candor in the air, a more naïve seduction. It’s about being provocative precisely in what you’re not showing but what you’re implying." (Roberto Cavalli)
