Burberry Celebrates British Artist Henry Moore At Makers House In London

LONDON, UK – Burberry celebrates British artist Henry Moore through its second straight-to-consumer show and an exhibition of his work at Makers House in London.

The February collection is inspired by the work and process of British artist Henry Moore. His take on scale, shape and texture is translated into sculptural silhouettes and asymmetric designs.

Following the unveiling of the collection, Makers House will open to visitors, providing them with a rare opportunity to explore Moore’s working methods and the evolution of his iconic sculptural ideas in an intimate setting in the heart of London.

Makers House will open with extended opening hours and free admission from 21–27 February, and will feature the following:

An exhibition of over 40 of Moore’s sculptures, monumental bronzes, working models, drawings and maquettes.

Works on show will include Mother and Child: Block Seat (1983–84), Draped Reclining Mother and Baby (1983) and Torso with Point (1967)

About The February 2017 Campaign

Shot by British photographer Josh Olins, the new campaign features up-and-coming models Nora Attal, Jess Cole, Maya Gunn, Sophie Hamilton, Ella King, Tamara Long, Elfie Reigate, Amber Witcomb, Myles Dominique, Tom Fool, Alex K, Henry Kitcher and Tom Walmsley.

The campaign was shot on location at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens, Hertfordshire: the artist’s former home.

Burberry worked closely with the Henry Moore Foundation to capture the new collection alongside the work it was inspired by

The models are captured in the gardens of the Foundation, with Moore’s sculpture Sheep Piece (1971–72) in the background and a recreation of the artist’s ‘Plastic Studio’, also specially constructed for the shoot.

Previewed today, the campaign will launch in its entirety following the brand’s second straight-to-consumer show on 20 February and run until August 2017 across outdoor, print and digital advertising, as well as Burberry platforms including Burberry.com, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, WeChat, Sina Weibo, Kakao, LINE and Youku.

Burberry campaigns showcase and celebrate the best of emerging and established creative talent; the brand has worked with a variety of cast members, photographers and filmmakers to bring each of its projects to life.

Burberry has recently worked with Steve McQueen, Angelo Pennetta, Brooklyn Beckham, and Asif Kapadia, as well as its longstanding collaborator Mario Testino, each bringing their own distinctive style and aesthetic to the creative treatment.

Jamaican sprint great Usain Bolt says he has no regrets about his decision to retire from athletics in 2017 as he has accomplished everything he wants to in the sport.

Bolt will hang up his spikes following the world championships in London in August, bringing the curtain down on a career that has delivered eight Olympic gold medals.

Bolt completed a ‘treble treble’ of 100m, 200m and 4x100m Olympic titles at the 2016 Rio Games, but had his 2008 relay gold stripped last month after team mate Nesta Carter’s re-tested sample showed traces of a banned substance.

Back-to-back Olympic 5,000 and 10,000 metres gold medal winner Mo Farah and double Olympic tennis champion Andy Murray finished behind Bolt for the award.

Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo and basketball duo Stephen Curry and LeBron James were also shortlisted.

Simone Biles was amazing to watch at the gymnastics in Rio. She picked up three golds and was rewarded with the Laureus world sportswoman of the year.

Leicester City shocked football fans across the globe when they were guided by Claudio Ranieri to the Premier League title. The club won a spirit of sport award while Ranieri was presented with a special discretionary prize.

Britain’s Rachel Atherton won the world action sportsperson of the year award for her downhill mountain biking feats.
