Burberry’s Travelling Exhibition Lands in New York
This week, the world of Burberry flew into New York with magical elegance, with the arrival of their travelling exhibition, ‘The Cape Reimagined’. The exhibition, which features 78 unique, handcrafted designs was inspired by the British sculptural artist Henry Moore. New York’s Moda Operandi was awarded the privilege of presenting the stunning collection, which premiered in London and is making its way through a selection of capital cities including Seoul, Paris, Los Angeles and Tokyo. The couture capes were first introduced on Burberry’s February 2017 runway and are created with a range of striking materials including feathers, fur, and ceramics. “Each one is a collector’s piece incorporating unexpected materials and intricate techniques” explained Burberry’s chief creative director, Christopher Bailey. Accordingly, each of these exquisite designs is exclusively one of a kind and made to order.
