Burberry’s remix of 1950s British bohemianism for spring/summer 2014 menswear

 

 

Everything was looser, more relaxed, and less raddled with fraught synthetic detail. Burberry’s touchstone trench was only lightly referenced in an opening look khaki coat made of featherlight cashmere jersey. There were sailing souwesters, patch pocketed artists coats, flashes of gingham and floral print and loose necked hoodies in lustrous materials. Instead of big studded statement bags there were paper-soft leather duffles slung by leather cord over the models’ shoulders. The strongest coup de theatre in this thoughtful collection was provided by zingy colour used sparingly. As Bailey said afterwards: “I wanted it to be joyous with a lot of colour. But if you break it down it’s easy colour; a neutral base with either a bit of colour in your shirt or your shoes or your glasses or your bags. I hope it was something that felt very wearable.”
