A successful Farfetch collab and work to boost its luxe edge helped Burberry's Q1, while a move to more frequent, exciting drops alongside a September runway collection hitting stores in February are key for the future.
Designers do love the unexpected. In a major surprise, the house of Burberry has revealed it will launch a limited edition collection with iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood. It will debut in early December.
Burberry seems to be on track with its transformation plan with sales and profits not suffering as it enters a period of fast change. But tough comparisons and regional variations also had an impact on its latest year.
The Italian designer, who arrived at the head of the British label in March, has paid tribute to the house's heritage with a selection of quintessentially Burberry looks, revealed on his Instagram account.
Burberry has become the latest luxury label to rethink its fur policy and has launched a review. If it chooses an outright ban, it will make Burberry the latest in a raft of luxe brands to go fur-free in the past year.
Brutalist, bold, often beautiful, occasionally pretty sleazy and often chicly modern is how one could describe both Berlin, and the latest Givenchy collection, which was inspired by the German capital.
