DANIEL LEE UNVEILED HIS FIRST COLLECTION FOR BURBERRY
Daniel Lee presented his vision for the British heritage label at London Fashion Week on Monday. From punk to fox hunters, the designer took the House into a new era by renewing its iconic pieces but also by paying a tribute to its archival roots.
Check is presented in bold colours across tailoring, blanket coats and knits – alongside an evolution of the Equestrian Knight Design (EKD).The trench coat is oversized with faux fur-trimmed lapels, the car coat deconstructed, the duffle and aviator exaggerated with softer silhouettes.
A homegrown thread is reinforced by pleated tartan-inspired kilts over trousers, chunky Aran and argyle jumpers and British motifs, including the English rose.Casual shoe styles draw on the functionality of the brand, from heritage-inspired equestrian boots to rubber rain boots. Sneakers are amplified, whilst a signature square shape frames sandals, mules and pumps in iterations that include cosy faux fur and shearling.
Bags draw on the outdoor aesthetic that Burberry is known for, saddle bags and satchels in sturdy colours and fabrics carry an initial ‘b’ that also forms its fastening. Details are considered and functional.
