No one celebrates being British more than Christopher Bailey. His latest Fall collection for Burberry Prorsum was a true celebration of a contemporary gentleman, fully suited in quilted leather and tweeds and just as comfortable in the country as he is in the hustle and bustle of the city.
In this collection, Bailey laid great emphasis on the suit as one the most important components of a man’s wardrobe. The form fitting suits featuring double-breasted jackets and well tailored trousers again proved why Burberry is known for it’s sartorial brilliance. Bailey stuck mostly to the grey tones for his tweed and herringbone suits but also included more luxurious velvet suits towards the end of the show. Cropped bomber jackets and flashes of vibrant colour in the shoes and bags gave this collection a really fresh, modern feel.
The collection had enough to make both the urban city slicker and the country gent grin from ear to ear and I’m sure it will be another greatest season for one of Britain’s finest exports.
