What do men look for these days in fashion? It is that power dressing that suit up a man and make them look sharp, or is it that laid back airy British feel with a sense of easiness towards life and fashion in general, yet is not afraid to embrace a little flowery patterns and a dose of mother nature motif? Maybe it is a little of both, depending on occasion and mood, we feel.
We had the pleasure to live stream on LUMINNEJ and witness the unveiling of Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2015 collection recently and menswear has never been this exciting. There is a certain look that makes a Burberry man stands out. What Christopher Bailey describes this season of collection is that Classically Bohemian kind of look and feel that he was going for.
We are loving that whole colour range of purple, ink, green, ochre, camel, charcoal and red. Especially captivated by the fringe details on the document case, scarves, with mixed layering of coat, cashmere ponchos or huge luxurious fringe shawls and that oh so classic looking scholar eyewear collection, with a modern flavour. We also find the bomber jackets a good fit. The Burberry Carryall bags look pretty cool to be carried around as well, especially if you are in the creative industry, quite some room space for things, we imagine.
As always, a Burberry show will not be complete without the lovely live music performances by singers or musicians from the local music scene. This time around, we were being serenaded by British singer-songwriter Claire Maguire (whom Christopher discovered via SoundCloud, it seems), loving her strong and husky vocal. Of course, celebrities are a must at a runway show like this one.
We love everything about this collection, except the animal prints bits *_^ We still feel, a classic man needs no animal to make them look anymore manly than he already is. Don't you think?
We shall leave you with some of our favourite picks. You can check out the rest of the collection here. If you had missed the show, you can watch it again here if you wish or simply just check out the highlight video below.
Selected items from the collection can be pre-ordered and get delivered to those who are interested way before they hit the store, as part of Burberry's Made To Order service. The Burberry Fringe scarf can be monogrammed with up to three initials, while outerwear and the Burberry Carryall Bag can be personalized with a bespoke name plate *_^
