Burberry Mens AW16 Catwalk
Burberry showcased its Autumn/Winter 2016 collection just hours after the world learnt about the passing of one of the UK’s most legendary musicians and style icons, David Bowie.
A subtle nod to the king of glam rock saw models sporting glitter on their faces whilst one model displayed the letters ‘BOWIE’ scrawled on her hands.
The collection ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ was presented in a custom-built venue in London’s Kensington Gardens and saw, for the first-time, the unification of the brand’s ready-to-wear labels.
2015 Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine was accompanied by a cellist and The Libertines drummer Gary Powell for special performances of “Condolence”, “Nemesis” and “Adios” from his debut Mercury Prize winning album “At Least For Now”.
The casual collection took a nod to the 90s with tracksuit tops (some covered in sequins), parka jackets and plaid topcoats designed for the Burberry man to wear on weekends. A new bag shape for the season came in the form of The Satchel along with new shoe designs – The Driver and The Derby.
Key items from the AW16 collection are available to purchase and
personalisation on Burberry.com until 21st January, as part of the brand’s Runway Made to Order service.
