RUNWAY: Burberry Prorsum SS15Burberry's Christopher Bailey presented his first menswear collection after taking over as both the CEO and CCO (Chief Creative Officer) for the venerable house today. The result was a beautiful hand-painted runway that matched the artistes that gingerly walked down the runway, wearing floppy hats and loose layers. The youthful collection reminded us of students, full of ideas and creativity, carrying their satchels to get an MFA and with hope of leaving a lasting impression on the world. However, like many of the most creative people, these young lads have a melancholy outlook, which translated to colorful but muted tones, and none of the optimism and sense of renewal that Spring oft times brings. Ombre shirts were covetable while the focus on outerwear is sure to bring in a steady stream of sales, even if the floppy hats are more likely be to scooped out by the girlfriends of these men.
