We could not miss a shadow of melancholy on parade with which Burberry presented in Kensington Gardens, in the sign of glamor, his men's fall-winter 2016-2017. He could not miss the day of the death of David Bowie, London music legend, but also an icon of British style in the world, the late eccentric and colorful youth to the more recent, rarefied and sophisticated. And were the notes of his music to make it hover for a few minutes on an audience moved, VIPs and not before the catwalk popolasse.
