Christopher Bailey presented a very cool and rich collection with lots of handwork input in it. Burberry boys marched in knit wears worn on slim fit trousers, donned with pompom straw caps and in Jute-leather woven shoes and hand bags. With ikat printed shirts - trousers in bright shades of color and detailed hand work highly suggested that Mr.Bailey took the boys through a tribal route this season.
I really like what Christopher Bailey has done to Burberry ! It's no more just a luxury brand for an old which was known for their super trenches but now also for a young, dynamic and trendy individuals.


The Tourist ! The American Tourist ! Dean and Dan's tourist started his adventurous journey with a sporty and preppy look - cool printed shirt/t-shirt worn over a slim denim tucked under hiking boots, a thin scarf wrapped around  neck and a cap on the head.
Then came the beaches and Mr.Tourist shed of his clothes and got into undies and vests in order to get tanned ! Now, up on the stage  our Tourist seemed like had reached Italy because he was dressed in super slim fit ankle length colored trousers clubbed with bomber jackets and loafers.
Dsquared tourist's looks suggested that his colorful journey came to an end at London as he was dressed in a black blazer with nicely sequined lapel over slim fit indigo denim and in supper skinny leather leggings ,in an aggressive mood trying to be a Brit Punk .


The collection might be inspired from war and military but Alber Elbaz, creative director at Lanvin made it clear that Lanvin Guy is a peace lover.
The collection was a mix of silhouette which was cut close to body with an immaculate fit as well as of silhouettes which were loose and relaxed tucked in military boots. A few looks had lot of layering and draping. The color pallet ranged from military khaki to sunflower yellow, velvet blue to grey with shades of black and white.



It felt like Galliano was with the collection at the start  and at the end of the collection ! And in between ? Well after the start, Galliano's signature style waned out and Bill Gayten's style  crept  in and then slowly faded out to Galliano's style towards the end . A strategy in order to stay connected with Galliano's fans !
A feather in the hat, colorful military jackets worn over beautifully printed relaxed pants. Vest coats and short jackets in prince of wales check and stripes were also seen and at the end came the Pirates - skinny black trousers worn over slim fit black coats and pointed shoes donning a very macho and aggressive look - Galliano's signature style.
For those, who were waiting for the surprise embraced The School Boy's look. Blazers worn over colorful shorts with  slim square end tie and baseball cap on the head - very commercial indeed !


The season's hottest trend  is checks and stripes, especially Prince of wales check and houndstooth pattern and Frida Giannini at Gucci decided to stay with it. Slim fitted , nicely tailored suits came in variety of checks, houndstooth pattern and stripes-majority of them in very earthy color.
But I felt the best part of the collection was the accessories.The leather bags and the holdalls came in different colors to help you beat the heat- sane white to bright red , in black croco prints as well as in plain leather too and don't forget the stunning glasses which would definitely make any head turn  ! 


Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton stuck to the brand's DNA this season. Known for their luxury products for travel and tour, the collection revolved around Louis Vuitton Man who would be traveling around the world for Safari rides in next summer !
Rich knits which came in khaki, navy and red-blue checks was worn over shorts making the look very sporty which later on was replaced by well fitted short jackets, khaki shorts, shirts clubbed with contrast red and blue scarves.
