The February 2018 Capsule Collection

A capsule collection of reissued pieces from the brand’s archive, rereleased as part of the runway collection, is now available to purchase. The collection features the Rainbow check, the latest iteration of Burberry’s most iconic symbol.

 

Burberry and Farfetch have announced a new global partnership launching with ‘Show to Door,’ an around-the-clock London delivery service of the February 2018 Capsule collection available for 24 hours after the show.

 

The partnership also expands Burberry’s global distribution network, giving the brand access to over 150 countries around the world.

 

Three tote bags inspired by the runway collection are available exclusively to Farfetch customers, in addition to the capsule collection.

 

The February 2018 Capsule collection is also available through Burberry stores globally, Burberry.com, and for a limited time only through new partner locations including Dover Street Market and Browns Shoreditch in London, Isetan in Tokyo, Antonia in Milan, and The Store at Soho House Berlin.

 

Burberry and LGBTQ+ Communities

The LGBTQ+ rainbow, an emblem for optimism and inclusiveness, features prominently across the collection, rooted in the introduction of a new Rainbow check, the latest iteration of Burberry’s most iconic symbol.

 

The Rainbow check pieces in the collection are available to purchase now online and in Burberry stores globally.

 

To solidify its support of LGBTQ+ communities, Burberry has made donations to three charities – the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project, and ILGA – all dedicated to broadening the awareness, mentoring, and resources available around the world.

 

Burberry has also launched a Snapchat Lens bringing the Rainbow check to life. The Lens allows users to immerse themselves into the Burberry AR experience by virtually wearing a Burberry Rainbow check cap.

 

The Lens is accessible via a unique snapcode which is live for the next 90 days in US and UK as well as in France for one week.

 

About United Visual Artists

Christopher Bailey has collaborated with United Visual Artists (UVA) on a reimagining of its work ‘Our Time.’ The installation, which served as the backdrop to Burberry’s February 2018 runway show, is on special loan from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Australia.

 

‘Our Time’ is an installation investigating the subjective experience of the passing of time, and has never been shown before outside of MONA.

 

The installation combines movement, light, and sound as a multisensory, multidimensional canvas into which the visitor can enter — pendulums swing, each to their own rhythm, as time flows through the grid.

 

For the show, ‘Our Time’ has been ‘reprogrammed’ in response to the specific nature of the venue and concept of the show.

 

As well as collaborating on the reinterpretation of ‘Our Time’, Christopher and UVA also designed a new original piece for the show’s finale called ‘Spectrum,’ a new installation with rainbow coloured lights and kaleidoscopic patterns that transformed the space.

 

Based in a studio in Bermondsey, London, UVA has created a broad body of work encompassing wall-based artwork, sculpture, large-scale site-specific installation, and live performance.

 

Since it was founded in 2003 by Matt Clark, UVA has been commissioned worldwide for institutions such as the Barbican Curve gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Serpentine Galleries, The Wellcome Trust, Manchester International Festival, and YCAM Japan. Works have also been acquired by the collections of Fondation Cartier in France and MONA in Australia.

 

Time is something we all understand conceptually but is very difficult to put into words. Our brains are literally being rewired so that time seems to pass faster. UVA sets the modest task of creating a work that does the opposite – it slows everything down and hopefully creates space for contemplation. Whether it’s a fashion show, an art installation, or a piece of architecture, most creative processes are working towards a point of time where it’s considered as being finished. I like to explore the spaces between traditional disciplines, this project proposed a number of interesting dynamics between fashion, art, performance, and architectural space.”Matt Clark, United Visual Artists Founder
