Burberry presented its new Spring/Summer 2020 collection in West London on September 16. The collection, called Evolution, is a celebration of new house codes and is influenced by the time Burberry was founded – the Victorian era.
Men models walked the show including Alexis Chaparro, Benji Arvay, Tashi Jay-Kwayie, Finn Rosseel, Ibrahim, Junior Vasquez, Matteo Ferri Jay Park, Nozomu, and Maxwell Annoh.
They were dressed in English-fit suits and trench coats in soft tonal and textural contrasts, cinched with belts. Pinstripes in crystal embroidery. Parkas, hoodies and rugby shirts articulated with rib-knit panels and zip details. Cut-outs on gingham poplin shirts, T-shirts and a crystal-mesh polo. Wide-leg trousers and a sports short overlaid with tailored wool. Finally, Signature unisex bags were reinterpreted – from Lola, in miniature and bum bag iterations, to the giant Pocket Bag.
Colors are grey black beige and white with infections of ochre fawn pink red and blue.
Prints are hand-sketched painted and collaged animal and gingham.
