Batik Prints Give Colour to Classics at Burberry


After the first hints of African inspiration in its Resort Collection, Burberry’s Spring 2012 men’s collection included colourful batik prints along with classic staples. Leather brogues, double-breasted pea coats and classic trench coats retained the British label’s distinctly English aesthetic, while flashes of Kanga-inspired prints in warm hues of terracotta, amber and vivid green gave the collection an exotic edge.

Creative director Christopher Bailey sent striped knitwear and lightweight duffel coats down the runway in Milan on Saturday, with powerful pops of colour and unexpected print. Bailey also reworked the winter staple of the bobble hat for Spring with a knitted, peaked version – the key accessory of the show.
