I’m not usually a huge fan of Burberry clothes, as they feel too commercial in a hideously expensive way. But its most recent collection was quirky and refreshing, blending its heritage pieces with eccentric knits and unexpected fabrics.
I love how after every show, they open up their shows to the general public, in an interesting location. This season it takes place in Old Sessions House, an 18th-century Grade II building in Clerkenwell Green, Alongside the clothes, an exhibition of British photography, features the work of over 30 of the most celebrated social and documentary photographers of the 20th century, including Dafyyd Jones, Martin Parr, Ken Russell and McLellan.
A fascinating look at British life from country shows, to club culture, the photography exhibition ‘We Are Here‘ is on until the 1st of October (the Burberry Collection is only there till the end of the day today) and is well worth a look.
