Burberry brings back archival pieces for a cool collection for Spring
As seen on the runway, the Burberry February 2018 capsule collection features reissued pieces from the 1980s and 1990s discovered in the brand’s archive.
Piqué polos, gabardine car coats and golfing sweaters wear their original Burberry logos and crests, while the Vintage check is updated to create the Rainbow check – a new icon of joyful inclusivity. The capsule is accessorised with caps, bucket hats and visors emblazoned with our 1960s-inspired Vintage check. Classic crests nod to the history of the Burberry logo. Coat linings reveal archive fruit prints.
Burberry is supporting three LGBTQ+ charities, the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project and ILGA, dedicated to broadening support for this community around the world.
“There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength and our creativity,” Christopher Bailey.
The rainbow, a symbol of inclusiveness and joy, is celebrated throughout the February collection. From functional puffer jackets to spectacular faux fur capes, blown-up, tie-dyed and graffiti-sprayed, the rainbow flag emerges across the collection. ‘My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to – and in support of – some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world.
