Olive Green



Confirming last week’s prediction, Burberry’s latest menswear show was a dignified yet wild juxtaposition of heritage shapes and new-wave finishes—from king-of-the-jungle prints to technologically advanced fabrications. Watch a video of the complete show (which took place two days ago in Milan) here, and check out the key trends that caught our eye below.


Fatigue Green. Thematically, a smart complement to the collection’s wildlife motifs, in referencing Britain’s colonial history in India and Africa. Practically, a welcome (and more rugged) addition to your standard neutrals like navy and grey.


Caged Animals. Touches of leopard, tiger and zebra appeared throughout the show—sometimes emphatic, sometimes refined. (Click to enlarge the model in the middle, and examine his shades and shoes.)


Next-Gen Fabrics. From left, these are leather (in an unexpected shape), laminated cotton (rendering it water-resistant), and a translucent-rubber trench. Designer Christopher Bailey consistently marries Burberry’s 150-year heritage with a nod to the future.
