Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2014 Menswear

Writers And Painters: Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2014 Menswear

Burberry Prorsum returns to homeground with their Spring Summer 2014 menswear collection, as one of the line-ups for London Collections: Mens. Quintessentially English, Burberry’s showing in London never felt so right.

‘Writers and Painters’ was the theme for Spring Summer 2014, as Christopher Bailey celebrates artistic and intellectual spirit, with a nod and a wink to Alan Bennett and David Hockney. Expect easy, relaxed tailoring that sits alongside lightweight pieces in linen and slouchy cashmere, all accented by bright pops of colours inspired from David Hockney’s paintings. Weatherproof cagoules and sou’westers take the whole collection outdoors and exudes the British summer. This is a collection that many guys will rejoice for its wearability, nothing too far fetched like Spring Summer 2013’s metallic frenzy. Memorable styling comes from the cute little overdyed nappa leather pouches that visually excites and while making a good alternative to all clutch bag lovers. I especially love the striped panelled or polka dot ones in suede and leather which will make a fun bag to carry come 2014. Also remember to check out the soft nappa leather clutches which at a great price of SGD950, is simply irresistable. (Pre-order at from now till 25 June 2013. Personalisation option available)

One downside to the collection, everything seemed very familiar. Polka dots, stripes and colours are simply too easy references for an established designer like Christopher Bailey. I wished there were more original details or prints that would have added depth and exclusivity for Burberry Prorsum, considering the line is Burberry’s trend forward collection. What do you think?
