Additional Information

The brand’s September 2016 collection was unveiled in full tonight for the first time on the runway which spanned across three rooms painted in dusty hues of pink, green and yellow, echoing the colour palette of the collection. The walls of the venue were kept bare, nodding to the past and to the people who had inhabited the building before. Elements inspired by interior designer Nancy Lancaster were found throughout the space, including cornicing on the doorways, fabric-covered benches and the hand-woven carpet that was laid throughout featuring a pattern based on a ceiling tile found in a house she had updated.

“Tonight’s show marked a very special moment for us – it was the culmination of a series of important changes we made designed to bring our collections closer to our customers. The collection was influenced by Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando – a love letter to the past and to English history, and a kind of dressing up box to visit and revisit. Inspired by this, tonight also celebrates the start of an amazing partnership with The New Craftsmen. Together, we are opening the doors to “Makers House” – a space for visitors to experience the British design heritage that is so integral to us and everything we do, and also a chance to be immersed by the work of some of the most exciting creators, and the innovation and inspiration behind their craft.” Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer

A 21-piece orchestra accompanied by pianist Rosey Chan and vocalists, performed ‘Reliquary’ a score written by British composer Ilan Eshkeri, exclusively for the show. The full show soundtrack is available to purchase now through the iTunes store and for streaming through the Burberry Apple Connect page on Apple Music.


The Collection

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.


Makers House, 1 Manette Street – now open

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. Spaces include:

· Gabardine Tent, representing a place of interaction and exchange where different makers invite the public to choose words, bring garments, share stories and sit for portraits throughout the week. In this space, the Burberry archive team will also journey through the pivotal moments from the company’s 160-year history.

· ‘The Studio’, a purpose-built creative set at Makers House, where guests can become part of the new September collection experience. The Studio allows visitors to publish short dynamic edits to Instagram and other social media channels. Guests will also receive a photographic print from The Studio.

This donation is made in recognition of each artist’s participation in the campaign.

Place2Be’s highly skilled practitioners deliver services in 235 schools across the UK, offering a menu of services for primary and secondary schools, providing support for children, parents, teachers and school staff

Burberry’s donation will fully underwrite Place2Be’s services in all seven schools around Easington, in Country Durham, over the next two years, helping up to 2,000 young people each year


County Durham Community Foundation

County Durham Community Foundation manages charitable funds donated by local individuals, families, businesses and trusts, building up a source of long-term support for the community and acting as the vital link between donors and local needs, enabling people to achieve far more than they could by themselves

The County Durham Community Foundation supports formerly unemployed young people in finding apprenticeships and work-based learning in the Easington area. It is dedicated to helping communities grow by creating opportunities and tackling disadvantage and exclusion
