London Collections Men SS16: Burberry Prorsum

At Buberry this season Christopher Bailey let loose his artisanal side for a more romanticised collection. Evolving the brand itself further, the introduction of heavy usage of lace paved the way for a seasonal spectacular in which the modern male was consciously catered for.




While more alternative steps were taken for SS16, Bailey chose not to stray too far away from the rustic hues that do so well for Burberry. Whilst this meant 55 looks that didn’t appear too daring, a second glance will uncover the more fashionable details. Light silken shirts that brushed against equally light tracksuit bottoms deserve more attention and as the collection evolves notice the lithe scarves in whimsical animal print.




These were ensembles for the dapper and more demure British gent so suits were on the scrawnier side but still provided enough surface area for a wealth of floral embellishments. The recurring lace even found a way to make an appearance on the classic Burberry trench as well, popping up on collars for good measure.

Though there was something a little too “pre-pubescent girl gets her hands on a fashion customisation toy kit” about these offerings. Nonetheless, this season represented a step towards diversifying the men’s wardrobe for the warmer months and keeping it all very statement too.
