The short video above is a double-take-inducing tease of what you’ll see tomorrow (Saturday, January 12) at 7:30am PST, when you watch Burberry Prorsum’s Autumn/Winter 2013 Menswear show live at Burberry.com.
It contains split-second flashes of impeccably constructed outerwear, rich quilting, mid-century menswear references, and…giraffe and tiger prints? We wouldn’t put it past Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s soft-spoken rockstar of a chief creative officer. The man has subtly but surely revved up traditional tailoring the past few years with polka dots, jewel tones and fluorescent foil—and impressively kept it all in good taste. Perhaps a gentlemanly take on exotic animal prints will represent Bailey’s exploration into his native Britain’s colonial roots…as well as a logical evolution of increasingly omnipresent camo motifs. Watch the show tomorrow to find out; and in the meantime, SHOP BURBERRY.
