To celebrate Burberry’s signature pieces, the British house is rolling out a worldwide series of pop-ups inspired by the animal kingdom. For two weeks in October, Burberry loyalists here in Singapore will be able to visit the showcase at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
In step with Burberry’s history with zoological motifs, the menagerie of primates and birds reconnects with chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci’s love for wildlife. If you’ve taken a closer look at the Burberry crest, you might have noticed the equestrian emblem of a knight and his noble steed.
Revisiting last season’s exploration of animalistic prints, Tisci has reimagined them as glossy, large-scale sculptures that would stir envy in any avid collector. Burberry has also made it a point to make these pop-ups carbon-neutral, teaming up with leading conservation organisation, Wildlife Works, which works to facilitate the regeneration of biodiversity in the Congo Basin.
The lineup of products on display will feature exclusive editions of Burberry’s signature bags, from its archive-inspired Pocket Bag to the monogrammed TB bag, referencing the initials of Thomas Burberry. Reimagined in new styles, the Pocket Bag is available mini-sized, alongside colourways including black, navy, and dark green leather trims. Also on the roll call? Mini luxuries in the form of card cases, silk scarves, monogram jewellery and AirPods cases in pink and warm sand, as well as pink and orange leather.
The Animal Kingdom showcase will open in Singapore on 1 October at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, L1, Grand Colonnade South, and will run till 14 October.
