Burberry's 'Writers and Painters' men's wear watched by actors, musicians
...and guests from sports like tennis player Serena Williams. The number one in women's tennis and shooting star of the lifestyle press is currently in England to prepare for Wimbledon.
On 18 June 2013, Burberry presented the 'Writers and Painters' inspired new menswear Spring/Summer 2014 in London's Kensington Gardens in front of guests who are working literally under spot lights; in the front row, actors and musicians like Kasabian band member Serge Pizzorno.

Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer, introduces into the collection: "A celebration of artistic and intellectual spirit, with a nod and a wink to Alan Bennett and David Hockney. Easy, relaxed tailoring sits alongside lightweight pieces in linen and slouchy cashmere, while accessories add bright pops of colour among the painterly tones. Weatherproof cagoules and sou'westers take the whole collection outdoors and into the British summer."
