Burberry Heads Home for London Collections: Men
After a decade of sending well-tailored gents up and down the runway in Milan, Burberry is coming home this summer, bringing their bi-annual menswear show to London. Set for June 18th during London Collections: Men, the show move makes plenty of sense for the already London-based juggernaut that promotes its British heritage almost as much as it does those essential crafted-in-Yorkshire trenches. Plus, we have to believe Christopher Bailey and his crew are happy to trade the sky miles for a fashion week home field advantage.

Did I like all the clothes? Nope.
Can models walk in kitten heels? Nope.
Does Christopher Bailey have me by my heart? Yes.
Am I an emotional wreck? Yes.

Bailey logic: ‘oh, so critics said no self respecting man would wear these tacky trenches inspired by plastic sweet wrappers? ummm, still good for women, innit?’

“Christopher Bailey is so kind and wonderful. He’s an anomaly within that world - a world that I basically find kind of terrifying.” - Eddie Redmayne
“It’s kind of slightly sickening, that he’s so talented, he’s so professional, he’s so charming, so elegant.” - Christopher Bailey
loving this two to bits.

Trying not to sound like a dick but I would fit perfectly between Eddie Redmayne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley… someone go tell Chris Bailey.
Christopher Bailey took inspiration from plastic sweet wrappers this season and turned them into tacky, tacky, tacky trench coats which no self-respecting man would wear. - Like I give a Frock
Now… can I just say that even though I do agree with what I copied and pasted above, my love for Christopher Bailey is eternal and unconditional?
These guys are legendary.
