Fringed ponchos and shawls, bold Paisley and floral motifs and animal prints on outerwear and shirts – the Burberry man embraces a “decorative and free” mood accompanied by exotic references, such as the Indian-style mirrors embroidered onto knits, scarves and trousers. Christopher Bailey kept the globetrotter spirit of last season but added a dandy yet classic allure, a kind of faux dégagé, which favoured slim lines, fitting quite close to the body and exact proportions, precious materials, such as shearling, sometimes in a leopard version, and a type of high quality pile proposed in dark tones. The blazers worn over bare skin, teamed with scarves in bright tints, couldn’t take away the glamour of this elegantly bohemian collection.
