Burberry x Opening Ceremony Collaboration

By  |  0 Comments

Burberry and Opening Ceremony have launched a vintage-inspired collaborative capsule.

They unveiled an exclusive capsule collection filled with bold typography and patterns.

According to a 2018 The Cut report, before leaving Burberry, former chief creative officer Christopher Bailey reimagined Burberry’s signature tartan check for his final show in January, which was dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth, by adding a rainbow overlay. The colorful designs were a big success and became a collector’s item for fans of the brand. And today Burberry is launching an exclusive collection at Opening Ceremony filled with new pieces, including some exclusively created for the retailer.

True to Opening Ceremony’s downtown cool aesthetic, the capsule leans heavily on streetwear staples like sweatshirts, track pants and T-shirts. Burberry referenced their archives — in particular, ’90s-era logos that feel especially current. Prices range from $240 for the graphic tee, and top out at $590 for the sweatpants, according to a 2018 Cut report.

To capture the collection’s spirit, Opening Ceremony sent photographer Salvatore Caputo to beachfront raves outside of Kiev, Ukraine. “I heard that Kiev’s party scene was the best in the world,”Opening Ceremony’s fashion director Carol Song said to Paper Magazine in a 2018 report. “It felt like’the last rave’ — the last place in the world where this culture felt authentic, no BS.” From 2:00 PM till sunrise the following day, Caputo photographed free-spirited young ravers dressed in pieces from the capsule uninhibitedly dancing, embracing, and kissing.

While Song expected a tough, jaded attitude from the crowd she and Caputo were met with open-mindedness and warmth. “Kiev is breathtaking,” she says, “but the kids I met and the sense of adventure I witnessed left me with an unforgettable experience.”

The Burberry x Opening Ceremony capsule collection is available at openingceremony.com and at Opening Ceremony stores in New York and Los Angeles. At both storefronts, the collection was presented in custom installations designed by Sabine Marcelis.

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
