Burberry Hosted Their Runway Show in This Magical London Home—Take a Look Inside
London’s cherished heritage brand Burberry is known for adopting the “bigger is better” model when it comes to runway shows. Over the last few years, designer Christopher Bailey has shown his collections for the house in giant, stadium-like settings with live music and plenty of high-wattage celebrities in the front row. This season, however, Bailey took a much more intimate approach, debuting his see-now-buy-now line in a space he’s dubbed “Makers House.” Tricked out with a green, romantically lit sculpture garden and dreamy, Old World fabrics and tapestries, some of which were inspired by famed interiors tastemaker Nancy Lancaster, the labyrinth-like space was something akin to everyone’s ideal British townhouse.
It was a splendid backdrop for the fashion and for Bailey’s wallpaper and interior fabric-heavy mood boards, but Makers House is so much more—from tomorrow until the 27th, the space will be open to the public, featuring artisans curated by The New Craftsmen working on their various trades, including bed accouterment, metalworking, and classic needlework. There will also be screen-printing demonstrations, readings of Orlando (which inspired Bailey’s collection) by acclaimed actors and actresses, and an installation by interiors assemblage team JamesPlumb. Additionally, Rachel Scott will take materials from the new Burberry runway collection to create one-of-a-kind patchwork cushion covers.
Makers House is a place anyone would want to live in, with beautiful little things to decorate any kind of home. For this 160-year-old brand, maybe sometimes bigger isn’t necessarily better. Apparently this season at Burberry, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Above, take a tour of their temporary digs.
