On 16 December 2017, Burberry will launch a 19-piece special collection, created and curated by ultra pop star Kris Wu and Christopher Bailey, namely the Burberry x Kris Wu Collection. The collection includes reinterpreted iconic Burberry pieces such as a trench coat with prints of Kris’s personal tattoos, oversized Burberry vintage check cotton shirts, signature leather-trimmed rucksack embroidered with artwork of Kris’s song lyric and other reimagined everyday essentials.
Here’s a sneak peak of the collection modelled by Kris himself:
‘Kris is an incredibly inspiring artist who embraces and is authentically involved in all the creative worlds of music, acting and fashion. Working with him has enabled us to push the traditional boundaries often associated with collaborations, and jump head first into a rich and truly mutual creative partnership. He is one of his generation’s unique talents and it is a great privilege and pleasure to work with him.’ –
Christopher Bailey, President and Chief Creative Of Burberry
‘I am happy to be continuing to partner with Burberry and on such a creative collaboration. It has been a special experience working with Christopher Bailey on this collection, which integrates my personal style into classic Burberry pieces. I was so inspired by the spirit, forward-thinking attitude and heritage of Burberry that I wrote and recorded a new Hip-Hop track called ‘B.M.’ which encapsulates my experience with the fashion house.’

Burberry x Kris Wu will be available in select stores and globally on Burberry.com from 16 December 2017.
