So, if, like me-you were glued to your computer screen watching mal-coordinated, beautiful boys stroll down Christopher Bailer's Milan catwalk, you must have some opinions on the predictions of what we shall all be adorned with next winter. If you weren't watching then here: http://live.burberry.com/ have a little look.
If we are to take Burberry literally, the palette will be a wintry one: slate greys merging with softer shades of this cheerful colour, airforce blue, military green, deep browns, thick creams and sublte hues of blue, gold looks to be their pop colour of choice and heritage military is an absolulute MUST.
Fabrics: it is suggested that we ought to contrast our soft leathers with thick shearling, whether has a soft interior or as an all over covering. [not practical, but simply GORGE]. Th detailing was definately one to watch: double collars, gold fastenings and button detailing on the backs of coats, multi buttoned coats, feminine boots and man bags.
The collection lacked sartorial, which i think could have been predicted due to Bailey's recently emphasised penchant for younger, slimmer, scruffier boys.
But what do you think? Will you follow it? Will you wear it? Is Burberry as a big a titan in menswear as they proved to be in womenswear last season?
I adore Burberry, but the menswear should return to England.
