Burberry presents Menswear Spring/Summer 2014 collection
June 24, 2013: Luxury fashion brand Burberry presented its Spring/Summer 2014 collection for men, titled ‘Writers and Painters’. Capturing their relaxed, intellectual style, Chief Creative Office, Christopher Bailey, showcases a collection which personifies effortless chic. “A celebration of artistic and intellectual spirit, with a nod and a wink to Alan Bennett and David Hockney. Easy, relaxed tailoring sits alongside lightweight pieces in linen and slouchy cashmere, while accessories add bright pops of colour among the painterly tones. Weatherproof cagoules and sou’westers take the whole collection outdoors and into the British summer,” he says.
Mr Bailey crafts knitwear as outerwear, shirts as outerwear, unstructured silk cabans, coats and jackets, the Artist’s Jacket and The Loose Tie (a new tailoring), unstructured paperweight trench coats and a collection of relaxed knits, cagoules and sou’westers. Dipping cashmere, silk, linen and cotton in shades of blues, greys, camel, olive, terracotta, white and pink, the collection exudes an easy-to-put together air while creating a smart look. The Duffle in painterly tones and colour-smudged crêpe sole suede shoes add that extra charm.
