Burberry Prorsum S/S 2014 Menswear Collection

Mar 25, 2014

 

During the men’s fashion shows in London yesterday, Burberry Prorsum returned to home turf and unveiled their Spring/Summer 2014 collection in London’s Kensington Gardens. It marked the first time the luxury menswear brand was back in London after showing in Milan for over ten years. It was a star-studded event, attended by celebrities like Hugh Dancy, Serena Williams, Tinie Tempah, Max Chilton and Jamie Campbell. The open-air space provided a fitting backdrop for the proceedings, and the ambience was further enhanced by the enchanting sounds of acclaimed, acoustic musician, L.A. Salami.

The collection itself was themed “Writers and Painters,” a salute to creative souls and a celebration of the artistic and intellectual spirit. The ensembles sent out by Christopher Bailey made use of fine cashmere, silk, linen and cotton fabrics, and pops of intense color (bright green, yellow, dusty pink and bright red) were peppered generously throughout the collection. Layered looks were the main attraction with knitwear/shirts skillfully doubling as outerwear, all presented with a wide array of cabans, coats and jackets. Several of the looks were finished with quirky accessories like skinny ties, bold sunglasses and brightly-hued duffle pouches.

Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer, Christopher Bailey summed up the show by stating,“London is our home town – it brims with creative energy and we are so proud to have shown our menswear collection here today. I wanted this collection to celebrate the uniquely spirited and charming British aesthetic, with a nod and a wink to the unmistakable style of Hockney and Bennett.”
