Styled by Mark – Fashion, Grooming and Lifestyle advice for Men made simple takes a look at the Burberry Spring 2016 Menswear Collection. This season, Christopher Bailey, design director, has once again elevated the details of the 2016 Menswear Collection and aptly titled it, Strait-Laced. The luxury brand known for its innovative menswear, coats, shoes accessories and fragrances, never disappoints! The play on the name Strait-Laced speaks to the tailored, but laced silhouettes found primarily in the shirting while being paired with suiting, quilted jackets and casual athletic accessories. The juxtaposition of lace and athletic wear was not missed on me. It’s a rather unique composition.
Other interesting updates occurred, most notably the lace collar on the classic and iconic trench coat. The current movement of mixing classic pieces with casual sporty pieces was also included in the collection with the tassled-loafers paired with knitted (Cashmere) sweatpants and silk T-shirts. The details captured in the tailored suits, jackets, shirt collars, neckties and accessories appeal to the traditional Burberry wearer, while the refined, classic, but casual elegance of the Strait-Laced Collection takes us on an innovative twist that we’ve come to appreciate from the luxury brand.
