BURTON & DOROTHY PERKINS | Great British Style

I was invited to attend the launch of Burton which also coincided with the 10th anniversary of Dorothy Perkins in the Philippines. Not one to miss the opportunity to see what’s going on in the retail scene, I made my way over to SM Mega Fashion Hall to see what the new menswear store had to offer.

I arrived a little earlier than everyone so I took a peek at what the models would be wearing for the fashion show downstairs.

Lots of great textures and prints

Got back to the party and was impressed with the attention to detail, right down to the menu

Outfits were well-documented that day

Not only by the press but by the guests as well!

“Nice shot”

The Dorothy Perkins side had all sorts of confectioneries which I could hardly resist

History of the brand, style influences, and most importantly… another contest!

Paul got one!

Divine did too! Tingnan mo, ang saya niya diba?

Models escorted us towards the main hall where the show would be underway, nice touch.

So much easier to imagine the clothes on oneself when seen on models beforehand.

Checking out the girls’ reaction to the pieces. Photobomb by Dani Barretto

The trousers were cut a bit high, which in my opinion only works well on slimmer men. Case in point.

I liked this shade of blue

The finale

I like smiling eyed models, changes the mood don’t you think?

This photo took about 5 minutes because of the number of other cameras being handed to the guy taking the picture!

Burton is definitely going to be go-to when it comes to casual weekend wear, maybe even the jacket to wear on nights out. Will see in the coming months and collections! Thank you RSSI for inviting Divine and I!
