Burberry introduces Travel Tailoring, which redefines traditional tailoring design, the collection features innovative fabric and engineered canvassing to allow unparalleled movement and comfort. Burberry describes it as "a new type of tailoring," with a focus on the travel consumer who wants to look sharp on the go.
The new suits feature "innovative lightweight construction" (the front panels of the suit), “lightweight shoulder construction," and “naturally flexible fabrics.” The suit jacket has been designed to sit like a normal blazer, but with more modern canvassing, lending extra flexibility and rotation in the shoulder. The suits also feature a new Italian ‘memory fabric’, a 100% merino wool specially woven to resist creases and crumples.
“Travel Tailoring takes us back to the very thing we are founded on — design innovation and craftsmanship — and challenges the traditional construction of the classic British suit,” said Burberry Chief Creative Officer, Christopher Bailey.
