Burberry is launching the Imagined Landscapes Pop-up to celebrate the houses iconic outerwear – a series of inspirational pop-ups across the globe showcasing classic and reimagined styles. Exploration and the freedom to go beyond have been an inspiration for Burberry for over a century. This takes a new form in the Harbour City Hong Kong pop-up, as a topographic mirrored sculpture rises from the landscape – an ephemeral brand space, dreamlike and futuristic, deeply connected with nature. Environmental shots of the British countryside from the campaign are featured throughout.
The experience continues inside, with an innovative space where the digital and physical collide– where exhibition meets retail. In one room, there’s an immersive experience featuring cinematic films by Chinese artist Jiayu Liu, where visitors are surrounded by screens and can interact with the unique worlds the artist have created. The exclusive Instagram filter continues our connection with technology and global communities, as visitors scan a QR code to unlock a digital experience inspired by weightlessness.
The journey of innovation is also reflected in the product available, in the latest iterations of the iconic trench coat by Riccardo Tisci – water-resistant gabardine alongside outerwear pieces crafted from the new gabardine. Crafted in the UK, the gabardine is expertly woven in a compact twill with a lightweight hand, allowing it to feature fluidly across quilts and puffers.
The pop-ups are a journey of discovery and escaping to a new reality.
ABOUT THE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE
Drawing upon Burberry’s longstanding spirit of pushing boundaries through innovation and creativity, the experience room is designed as a digitally immersive journey through nature. Featuring interactive visual and audio content created by Chinese artist Jiayu Liu, the ‘Wings of Life’ brings Burberry’s heritage of exploration to life and creates unique and personal content for customers to share on social media. Inspired by the Trench Experience first revealed at Burberry’s Shenzhen social retail store last year, the cinematic film is a homage to founder Thomas Burberry’s vision to create a breathable weatherproof fabric to protect against the elements.
