About the Burberry February 2017 Collection

Unveiled on the runway as part of London Fashion Week, Burberry’s February 2017 collection is inspired by the work and personal style of Henry Moore – exploring sculpture and silhouette, material and process, strengthening proportions and hard-wearing fabrics.

The artist’s influence is articulated through form, texture and crafted detail, as well as vivid prints referencing his designs from the archive at the Henry Moore Foundation.

All menswear and womenswear looks shown on the runway are available to buy through the brand’s global physical, digital and partner retail network, as part of the brand’s second straight-to-consumer collection.
