The introduction of a joyful new symbol for the future. Rainbows overtake a functional puffer jacket, a faux fur cape, an oversized knit. Blown-up, tie-dyed and graffiti-sprayed. Optimistic and inclusive, the LGBTQ+ rainbow flag emerges on Vintage check totes, caps, sneakers and a reversible Harrington.
A capsule collection of reissued pieces from the brand’s archive, re-released 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 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.
