Christopher Bailey turned to Henry Moore, British sculptor extraordinaire for inspiration for the brand’s second see-now-buy collection.
It was 17 minutes of sartorial satisfaction watching the Burberry Spring ’17 show as models trailed down the runway of the Makers House to Anna Calvin’s ‘Whip the Night’ accompanied live by the Heritage Orchestra & Choir in the background.
Christopher Bailey turned to Henry Moore, British sculptor extraordinaire for inspiration for the brand’s second see-now-buy collection. “I have been fascinated by the great British sculptor Henry Moore for as long as I can remember – his work has always had a powerful influence on me. Looking at, and thinking about, his work set up a series of conversations as we began working on our latest collection. The result is an incredibly enriching collaboration with his Foundation which has extended well beyond our show, and into an extraordinary exhibition of his work and process at Makers House.”
Macramé lace played hide-and-seek, peeking out from underneath asymmetric engineered cable knit top; one shoulder layered dresses were worn over extra-long sleeved shirt proudly bearing prints of Moore; apron-stripe silk cotton were paired with sculpted-heel knitted ankle boots. It was the perfect blend of artistic past and present, fashion and art.
