Shop the interactive Burberry Fall 2016 collection film inspired by the spirit of Nancy Lancaster’s interior and garden designs and Virginia Woolf’s novel ‘Orlando’.
With a crafted collection featuring historic, cultural and artisanal details, the collection blurs the lines between the past and the present, masculinity and femininity. Pieces are crafted with time-honoured techniques in styles that contrast between the classical and the modern, creating an aesthetic born of all moments that have come before it.
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.
Shot by Mario Testino in the sculpture gallery at Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, the classical location serves as a backdrop to the new collection with pieces contasting period-style silhouettes with modern detailing.
