Milan Menswear AW13: Burberry Prorsum

Christopher Bailey’s autumn collection was a lot more subdued than his shiny spring 13 offering.

On reflection this was no bad thing as what he showed was subversive and more commercial, yet retaining the freshness the designer has brought to the house since his arrival in 2001.

Where previously Bailey played with foil finishes, this season his material of choice was rubber, offering up a selection of fetishy macs and jackets that represented the show’s best looks when combined with the charming love heart-print knits and shirts, the pattern showing through the lightweight outerwear. Other highlights included a couple of storming duffles, a pleasing parade of army green military looks and, most daringly of all, animal-print coats, plus a re-emergence of the brand’s classic check.

In short Bailey’s ability to continue to riff on the Burberry heritage with such skill continues into autumn 13 with a collection that will look great in the stores, as long as buyers go for the more daring pieces.
