Men’s Fashion Week has started last weekend in London. Burberry was the show of the week with two major highlights, the British brand paid tribute to the music legend and Kris Wu modeled for the first time.

The mournful news of Bowie’s passing was abrupt and only announced shortly before the show. The house still managed to pay an impromptu tribute to David Bowie.

Bowie’s songs were played before and after the show, models had their cheekbones sprinkled with stardust glitter to look as if they were crying glitter tears. Model Hayett McCarthy took the initative to scrawl “BOWIE” across her palms, flashing his name for the world to see while walking down the aisles.

In terms of casting, former EXO member, Kris Wu, who also won Asian Fashion Icon of the Year in 2014 finally made his long-awaited debut as a model on the Burberry runway.

Donned in a trendsetting beige Burberry trench coat, Wu was styled fashion forward with a zipped navy-blue turtle neck and a pair of dark cherry wood pants, completed by black and yellow tennis shoes.
