Yesterday, Burberry showed its Burberry Prorsum menswear Spring/Summer 2014 collection in London’s Kensington Gardens. Part of London Collections: Men, the event marked the first Burberry menswear show in the brand’s home town after over ten years in Milan. Guests arrived at London’s Kensington Gardens and walked down a secluded ‘country lane’ to the sounds of Burberry Acoustic musician L.A. Salami, before entering the open-air show space. 

The Spring/Summer 2014 collection titles ” Writers & Painters”  is a celebration of artistic and intellectual spirit, with a nod and a wink to Alan Bennett and David Hockney.

The whole collection is extremely wearable and what draws me are the wonderful combination of colours and fabrics like light cashmere, cotton and linen. Items to look out for include the polka dot scarves, multicolored duffle pouch and deck shoes.

Here are 10 of my favourite looks from the collection:

P.S.  I thought the like the idea of  ‘shirt over shirt’ in Look 6 is very simple yet interesting.

The show marked the expansion of Runway Made to Order, the Burberry service introduced in February 2013. Custom-made coats, bags and accessories – including eyewear and watches for the first time – are now available to purchase and personalise immediately after the show on for one week until Tuesday 25 June.
