Let’s start: See now buy now. Burberry fw16
Last night Burberry opened the doors to Makers House, its new show venue in the heart of Soho, starting a week long programme of activities with the presentation of its inaugural straight-to-consumer collection.
The entire men’s and women’s runway collection including the make-up look premiered today is now available to purchase globally, including through Burberry’s physical and digital retail network, shipping to over 100 countries.
Guests were given a preview of Makers House, which will be open to visitors from 21 to 27 September, with a daily changing programme of activities and installations showcasing original works by some of Britain’s finest craft makers, as well as a display of the entire September collection.Celebrating the craft and inspiration behind the September 2016 collection, Makers House features different stations and spaces where makers from The New Craftsmen will be demonstrating various crafts and techniques.
The origins of the new men’s and women’s collections, which were shown together for the first time, are found in the spirit of Nancy Lancaster’s interior and garden designs and Virginia Woolf’s novel ‘Orlando’.
Inspired by a reflection on the way a house changes its character over the centuries driven by the people, clothes and cultures that inhabit it, the collection combines noble and authentic fabrics, blending denim and sweatshirting with cashmere and pyjama silks. It blurs masculine and feminine, casual and formal, night and day, all mixed together to create a new reality born of all the moments that have gone before.
Highlights from the collection include deconstructed trench coats, regimental capes, coats and jackets (including The Cavalry Jacket, The Military Tailcoat and The Parade Jacket), waisted field jackets (including The Floral Field Jacket), pea coats, pyjama-style trousers, shirts and shorts, and ruffle-neck shirts. Also previewed today was The Bridle Bag, a new runway design for men and women, which takes its inspiration from classic British equestrian designs and Burberry’s outdoor heritage.
