London Collections: Men – Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 14
British paint job
The collection for fall 2014 Christopher Bailey, is far from classic. Bailey showed relaxed black pants with wide pockets and white t-shirts, fishnet mesh tanks, colourful silk scarves tied on top of the classic Burberry trench, and deep V printed sweaters. This seasons collection entitled 'a painters journey' has been heavily influenced by the art world, specifically British painters David Hockney and Christopher Wood. Bailey played with the ideas of patterns and block primary colours, which were first hinted at in the teaser video the fashion house released 48 hours prior to the show.
Accessories also play a big role, with hand painted prints on bags and striking patterns on scarves, shirts and sweaters which, included prints of London maps and landmarks, as well as polka dots and leaves.
