Writers & Painters–Burberry Prorsum returns home to London for their spring/summer 2014 outing, held at Kensington Gardens. Inspired by the likes of Alan Bennett and David Hockney, art and intellect provided the context for the latest collection of Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey. Bringing a fun jovial attitude to menswear, the collection reinterpreted the essentials with a new purpose, suggesting knits and shirts as outerwear and the artist's jacket and loose tie as the ultimate sign of New Tailoring. Cut from cashmere, silk, linen and cotton, paperweight trenches, cabans, cagoules, sou'westers and more were offered in a parade of bright colors that touched upon blue, green, yellow, red and more.
