The Burberry fashion house launches the first book in honor of the 160th anniversary. Created in collaboration with Assouline, the book tells the story from Thomas Burberry’s 1856 concept to the arrival of Daniel Lee. WWD writes about it.
The book has 252 pages. Divided into five chapters, the work documents the evolution of a small family business to become the world center of British fashion. After reading, the reader will learn about the history of the Burberry logo, all the historical figures who influenced the development of the brand, its outdoor heritage, and much more.
“Burberry is a story of creativity, research, innovation and community that continues to be at the heart of the brand. During the excavation of a dormant treasure, countless gold nuggets were discovered. This book provides an overview of the company’s remarkable legacy that deserves wide coverage,” said Carly Ek, Curator of the Burberry Archive.
The book features 200 illustrations and images from Christopher Bailey and Riccardo Tisci’s time at Burberry as creative directors. The book is now available for pre-order. The official launch will take place on March 28.
Previously, Burberry introduced a new series of environmental projects Burberry Landscapes. The art objects are found on the island of Hierro in the Canary archipelago and in South Africa, in the Western Cape. We talk about it in more detail here.
