Somewhere Over The Rainbow: Burberry Spring 2018 RTW

Reflecting the Past.
Celebrating the present.
Heralding the future.

With the world buzzing about social and economic issues, and a new generation of voices on the horizon, it’s officially time for some change. Keeping in mind the prosperous people of the future, Burberry established their Spring 2018 Ready to Wear collection as an exemplifier of change.
Starting his career with the British Fashion house back in 2001, Christopher Bailey has transformed the brand into the iconic Burberry London that we know so well today. Since the fall and winter 2017/18 collections, the quintessential brand has experimented with a more daring and vibrant collection of pieces.
United Visual Artists
Collaborating with United Visual Artists (UVA), Christopher Bailey used ‘Our Time’, a reimagined display of UVA’s designs on loan from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Australia. Matt Clark the founder of UVA explains the difference that UVA makes in perceiving time and not just going through the motions of day to day activities that wire our brains with time as a blur, “UVA sets the modest task of creating a work that does the opposite – it slows everything down and hopefully creates space for contemplation”.

The Spring 2018 Collection embodies and speaks out for the LGBTQ+ Community with incorporations of the new “Rainbow Check”, and stands in resilience with 3 different charities to honor and protect those associated with the community.
The Rainbow check pieces in the collection are available to purchase now online and in Burberry stores globally:

An inspiring collection is complete with vintage iconic styles mixed with new more daring styles of gowns, hoodies, an array of handbags for every style, parkas, ponchos, hats, and vests, all connected among daring people to create a uniqueness of culture and style.
