Mens RTW SS'14: London Edition
>> “I wanted this collection to be sensuous, soulful and playful — something that had character and felt familiar,” said Burberry’s chief creative officer, who, for this collection, worked exclusively within this season using cotton, linen, silk and cashmere.<<
>> If it wasn't for Christopher Bailey's love of art and culture, this collection may have not been as successful. Alas, that did not happen. In the early stages of curating these clothes, Bailey decided to utilise an art studio contrary to a designer's one. <<
>>With the primary use of the artists' studio, Bailey sent out primary colours, including creamy pastels and of course, laid back silhouettes mostly inspired by his friend, and fellow Yorkshireman, David Hockney. <<
>> The collection was meant to be viewed as bright and playful as a kindergarten classroom, including such accessory things as bold red neckties paired with mustard shirts, and knits — some with hoods, others with collars — in shades of sun-kissed corn, brilliant blue and light lilac. <<
>> Suits should have a youthful vibe — if you need a stylised reference, think Dustin Hoffman in “The Graduate” — and were often worn with loose and lightly flowing polka dot scarves, or layered with bright, feather-light knits. Not only that, but Bailey played with shirts and knits as outerwear too, sending out a lineup of raincoats, long and short, in brights straight from a child’s paint box. <<
So much more to come, stay tuned!
