Burberry Prorsum Menswear A/W '13 Show

January 14, 2013

I had the most fantastic time in Milan and the highlight was without a doubt attending the Burberry Prorsum menswear show.  The show was truly a production.  In addition to the beautiful fashions presented on the runway, the venue, backdrop, lighting and music featuring British musician Amy Macdonald and Burberry Acoustic musician Jake Bugg tied it all together encouraging a breathtaking <sigh> when the lights went down.  See full show video here.

London Fashion Week: Menswear A/W '13

January 10, 2013

Inspirations“Texan oil baron, "a local hero", Shetland.”

Inspiration: "It's a show that is inspired by all things John Waters and a special interest in marquetry."

Inspiration: "Being young, living and growing up in the Hebrides, exiled in the most remote corner of the British Isles inspired the AW13 collection."

Signatures: "Innovative, functional and fun."

The second ever London Fashion Week for men's collections ended yesterday.  The city is still buzzing from the shows and my picks of the best looks are above.  First impression: Baggy pants ruled the runway.  A mix of classic British elegance with double-breasted jackets as seen at E.Tautz and modern street style at Christopher Raeburn were my favorites.  Tomorrow I am off to Milan for Milan Fashion Week.  More men's show coverage to come.
