BURBERRY COLLECTION 2017 LONDON FASHION WEEK

By  |  4 Comments

Burberry premiered its February 2017 collection for men and women, at its Makers House show venue in London.

The February collection is inspired by the work and personal style of Henry Moore – exploring sculpture and silhouette, material and process, strengthening proportions and hard-wearing fabrics.

The artist’s influence is articulated through form, texture and crafted detail, as well as vivid prints referencing his designs from the archive at the Henry Moore Foundation.

Watch the Burberry February 2017 collection as it’s revealed on the runway.

The collection was inspired by Henry Moore and backstage Bailey spoke of his long affinity with the art form, having grown up near the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

The show coincided with the opening of a Henry Moore exhibition in the space and dotted around the catwalk were looming statues, making the experience all the more immersive for those there.

The collection itself was a nod to sculpture, subtly seen in interestingly cut knits, layered fabric and circular boot heels, and more exaggerated in oversized feathered capes, neck ruffles and enhanced silhouettes to close the show.

Womenswear focused on exquisitely simple lace dresses, worn alone or layered over striped shirts, while men had shirts with a Henry Moore print and sweatshirts with graphic 3D thread swirling around them.

Trenches were of course a fixture, coming in tweed and check in a nod to the British heritage of both the brand and this season’s muse.

Christopher Bailey said:

“I made this collection with passion and with integrity. I grew up in Yorkshire with the sculpture park, and Moore is someone I have loved all my conscious life. The way the world is at the moment, it feels like a good time to do something you truly believe in.”

Burberry’s second see-now-buy-now collection could only be described as a roaring success, at least visually speaking.

The next few weeks will tell if customers are as enamoured with the collection as those in attendance at last night’s show were, but surrounded by Henry Moore statues in Maker’s House and watching sumptuous piece after piece waft down the catwalk, you could be under no illusions as to Christopher Bailey’s skill as a designer…

In my opinion this is a beautiful collection.

I think that, Burberry is back at the top of British fashion!

What do you think about this collection?
