Burberry have a spectacular knack of innovating a simple and classic cut to their garments and offer a pristine look for modern day men all over the world. The famous fashion house has designed clothes for the fashion conscious male for over 150 years and what they showcased yesterday could be described as a casual relaxed look that any man can admire.
The collection boasted tailored angle grazed trousers, tailored dress shirts, hooded Mac coats and knitted sweaters all accompanied with a pop of colour whether it be the colourful boat shoes or loafers, vibrant narrow tie, or slouched string bag. The main colour palette was of a muted sort with the regular appearance of beige, grey and blue and the block colours were often broke up with a stripe or polka dot print.
According to Daze, Christopher Bailey paid homage to the British artist David Hockney for his highly-anticipated return. However, it wasn’t his paintings of Yorkshire landscapes that served as the inspiration – instead it was his pop coloured L.A. series of pool paintings. These works served as the colour palette of a beautifully crafted collection. Bright red ties were worn over yellow shirts – Bailey referencing the stark contrasts of Hockney’s interpretation of California luxury living. There were some bold polka dot print shirts, relaxed knitwear and neon perspex glasses and then came the very British Burberry classics, such as the mac. This collection wasn’t about a big change in style of design for Burberry, instead it was one that left its mark on London – Bailey telling us Burberry is back.
