Burberry has launched its February 2017 collection for men and women at its Makers House show venue in Soho, London.
Inspired by Henry Moore, the iconic British artist known for his avant-garde bronze sculptures, Burberry‘s latest campaign features the brand’s catwalks show as well as exhibiting more than 40 of Henry Moore‘s works and sculptures. The exhibition, which is open to the public from February 21 to February 27, also host various programmes including events, acoustic performances and workshops such as life drawing, object-making and textile design.
“Henry Moore‘s art has always loomed large in my imagination: these great, iconic figures in the British landscape, elemental sculptures that manage also to be human, soft, approachable,” said Christopher Bailey, Burberry‘s chief creative and chief executive officer.
“At Burberry, we are always fascinated by the making process, where it is hidden and where it is revealed. The images of Moore in his studio — the stripes of his apron, the tools of his trade, the artist at work — ended up feeding into the collection itself. It is our privilege, with thanks to the great kindness of the Henry Moore Foundation, to be able to present our collection alongside the work that inspired it,” he added.
The latest Burberry‘s menswear and womenswear collection are now available for purchase via Burberry‘s physical, digital and partner retail networks. If you are interested in purchasing the aforementioned menswear collection, click here for further details.
