2018 is set to be a big year for Burberry. Christopher Bailey, the brand’s President and Chief Creative Officer, is stepping down from his roles after 17 years. Rumours are rife as to who will replace Bailey but for now, the brand is focusing on its February collection — Bailey’s last — which it will show on February 17th during London Fashion Week.
Today, the brand announced that it will re-issue a capsule collection of key items from its archives with the new season collection that will be available to purchase immediately after the show. The brand has teamed up with British luxury e-commerce site Farfetch (who recently announced a new partnership with the Chalhoub Group) to offer an around-the-clock delivery service of the capsule, plus three exclusive tote bags, for 24 hours after the show has finished.
Burberry also announced that it was changing venues for its new show. Now, the runway will be held at the Dimco Buildings in West London.
