‘Strait-Laced’: lace insinuated itself into the severity of the tailored suit, feminising the silhouette. The new Burberry man is a businessman in a single or double-breasted jacket, narrow tie and a lace shirt or blouse in either white or other pale tones, while he alternates classic trousers with track pants in cashmere with drawstring waist and elastic cuffs. Lace appeared as a contrast on the collars of trenches and coats and featured in refined, elaborate passementerie on the button placket of short-sleeved shirts, while abstract animal prints decorated impalpable low-neck tops, in sharp contrast with the thicker fabric jackets that clearly marked out the seemingly rigorous silhouette.
