Burberry returns to Makers House with Henry Moore-inspired collection
Burberry has just announced a new collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation — a British-based charity that celebrates the artistic works of the late artist and sculptor, Henry Moore — which sees a return to the September '16 runway location, Makers House. On February 20 Burberry will once again unfold a co-ed collection, alongside some of Moore's iconic sculptures, which served as the inspiration behind Burberry's Creative Director and CEO Christopher Bailey's vision.
Speaking about the collection Bailey says: "I have been fascinated by the great British sculptor Henry Moore for as long as I can remember. Moore's work on display will be a shining example of the creativity and enormous contribution he made to the development of contemporary art in the UK and way beyond, and I'm excited to be showing our February collection alongside the remarkable work of the artist that inspired it."
To celebrate the partnership between the British brand and the Henry Moore Foundation, the fashion house released campaign images and a video ahead of the show. Shot at the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens in Hertfordshire, South of England, by British photographer Josh Olins, the campaign provides a sneak peek into the latest collection and stars Amber Witcomb, Tom Fool and one of Moore's sculptures, aptly titled Sheep Piece.
The campaign also marks Burberry's second straight-to-consumer runway show, with the pieces featured now exclusively available for pre-order on Burberry.com. Also read about Burberry's new beauty ambassador, Iris law, fronting her first campaign for the brand.
