Iconic British fashion brand Burberry revealed the first images of its Autumn/Fall campaign on Tuesday, featuring designs explicitly inspired by Orlando.
“Just as Virginia Woolf’s Orlando is both a love letter to the past and a work of profound modernity, this week-long exhibition aims to nod both to the design heritage that is so integral to Burberry’s identity, and to some of Britain’s most exciting creators, and the innovation and inspiration behind their work,” said Christopher Bailey, the brand’s chief creative officer.
Fittingly, the runway show for the new ‘seasonless’ collection will mark the first time that Burberry mens and womenswear will be shown together.
Walking up Bond Street today, Mrs Dalloway would find Burberry at Nos. 21-23 New Bond Street.
Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.
― Virginia Woolf, Orlando
