Burberry’s classic mac got a lace update for SS16 at their ‘Strait Laced’ LCM show, which included the debut of The Chelsea silhouette.
At the bottom of the garden
Burberry showed at Kensington Gardens once more for SS16. Their signature mac followed the theme and was given a floral lace update for the girls, while the boys had all the sweetness and charm of an English country garden in floral applique blazers and shirts with central lace bibs and white delicate collars.
The Royal Borough
Not only was the show held at Kensington, Burberry debuted their new cut, The Chelsea. Burberry menswear’s fourth fit style and an entirely new silhouette was modelled on a Made In England trench plus plenty of tailoring. You can get the Chelsea look on just about everything else too, with suits, shirts and ties all taking on the fresh style.
Prints and picnics
The girls might have got the cute backpacks but the boys got woven briefcases like miniature picnics baskets you could (almost) wear to work. The tailored look was played down this season with cashmere joggers and we were treated to playful print accents with tiger and giraffe making an appearance and tiny bugs acting as tie-pins.
