Always love London,

every time I go there,

there are always something

exciting happening,

this time,

the made in UK –

The Burberry ‘Strait-Laced’ SS16 Menswear Show

Always excited about receiving calligraphy invitations, you know me.

The show was held on a very sunny day on June 15th at the Kensington Gardens,

English flowerbeds surrounded place,

yes, indeed, it was beautiful and very romantic.

I myself of course had to take the chance to wear my new pink silk organza gabardine trench 🙂

The show is about to start.

We know it when elegantly the 24-piece orchestra sat down together with

Rhodes, a British musician, performing a live soundtrack to the show.

“Close your eyes” was so amazingly performed.

Rhodes voice and the live orchestra just rushes into you.

You can also get a good glimpse of the finale here.

I would have to say, girls always have an obsession about lace,

and when it is on menswear, it also brings a good contrast of masculinity,

and uplifts the whole classic element of the trench.

Double the classic but playful with a touch of romance. 

This what the collection is really about.

“Inspiration of the show – called it the “Strait-Laced,”

and it was really a contradiction of something very formal, subtle, very traditional,

mixed with something much more poetic & romantic”

– Christopher Bailey

The silk shirts for a modern gentlemen, sculpting the beauty of the body in beautiful Burberry man’s colour palette,

but at the same time, it sort of puts some fun into the very usual traditional “men in the suit” look

The tailoring of Burberry men’s suits are always superb,

with the reflection of fine materials in royal navy blue colour

– look at the tailored silhouette.

This show introduced – The Chelsea,

a new tailored slim fit design and a new fourth fit.

The Chelsea silhouette was presented in the trench coat designs and

across the Burberry range of tailoring suits, shirts and ties that we see here.

We cannot miss the Burberry scarves,

always the highlight of every show.

Love these super light weight Scottish cashmere scarves that comes in different colours and variations

that sort of catches the camera when it flies in the air.

And, don’t miss the tassel loafers you see in all three photos here which gives it an extra colourful & fun touch to the whole look.

Finally, are you surprised to see Womenswear in a Men’s Show?

This is the first ever that Burberry has included Womenswear as part of the Menswear show,

showing a selection of Women’s SS16 Pre-Collection looks.

How luck we were!

That English lace! – elegant, feminine, chic and sophisticated.
