After a decade in Milan, British designer Christopher Bailey moved the Burberry Prorsum Menswear show back to home turf, as he sent a set of best-dressed boys down the Spring 2014 runway today at Kensington Gardens in London, England. An eclectic group was seated front row, with many rocking their own interpretations of the brand.
Douglas Booth: The young English actor turned on his boyish charm with this casual Burberry ensemble, as he rolled up the sleeves of his denim-blue blazer. The floral-print, cerulean-blue shirt echoed some of the brighter hues seen on the runway, but his dark, baggy pants and unpolished black lace-up shoes brought down the look a bit.
Serena Williams: The tennis ace simultaneously flaunted and covered her curves in top-to-toe Burberry, donning a Burberry London fuchsia body-con minidress mixed with a classic stone-coloured trench. She styled the look with animal-print, calfskin T-bar sandals and a tote bag, covered in black hearts. A pulled-back ‘do, rather than her super-long locks, may have delivered a more polished effect.
Tinie Tempah: The British rapper also got in touch with his animal instincts with a Burberry giraffe-print, black-and-white shirt worn with the brand’s black cropped leg pants and shiny patent shoes. The bold black frames of his glasses added another dose of cool factor to his standout entrance.
Hugh Dancy: The dapper actor suited up in Burberry, but took some of the formality out of his slate-blue sport coat and pants by going tie-less and unbuttoning the collar of his baby-blue striped shirt. The hint of a pocket square along with black patent shoes completed his easygoing approach.
Dan Gillespie Sells: The British singer-songwriter watched the show in a black Burberry sport coat and baggy pants. With the sheen of the jacket, an edgy printed T-shirt, instead of his plain white tee, would have been preferred.
David Gandy: The British model looked appropriately suave, as he sauntered out a multilayered ensemble featuring a slim-fitting camel suede blazer paired over a tan micro-herringbone vest and navy pants. His slate-blue tie reflected the colour of his steely-blue eyes. Aviator sunglasses and black patent shoes topped off the look.
