This is Bruce Chatwin.

And he was named as the inspiration for Burberry Prorsum’s S/S 2015 collection that just stepped off the runway in London.

It’s not often a label name-drops a style icon so obscure that we’re left scratching our heads. So we did some digging, and as it turns out, he really was one stylish dude—in addition to being a lifelong traveler and novelist. In other words, good inspiration for anyone looking for adventure.
