The Burberry man for Spring|Summer 2011 is a modern “road warrior” with a rock and roll edge. Burberry streamed the fashion show live from Milan earlier today on their website.
While there were plenty of classic military inspired looks, the pieces that really stood out are biker inspired : tailored leather pants, motorcycle jackets, and the vests with studs that looked like armor. The show was strong, confident and one of designer Christopher Bailey’s best for the British house.
Backstage after the show Christopher Bailey said the show’s biker looks were inspired by a book of proto-greaser designs by Thomas Burberry. It’s a hot collection and it’s sure to be a real hit. You can pre-order the Collection until June 26th on Burberry’s website. Here is the full length video of the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2011 Collection.
