Burberry Offer Garments for Pre-order Before Their Own Catwalk Show

In a move of sheer brilliance, Burberry are letting their ardent fans get their hands on certain items from the menswear and womenswear AW17 collections before the clothes even go on show at LFW.

The clothes are androgynous in keeping with current trends, but women can choose an asymmetric gabardine trench coat in grey, and a cotton shirt dress with macramé detail and pin tucks, whilst the men can buy a Breton stripe long sleeve T–shirt and an asymmetric mushroom grey cable knit sweater.

They are beautifully constructed and evoke the density and monumental nature of Moore’s sculptures. The androgyny seems most appropriate for a collection based on the unisex shapes and forms of sculptor Henry Moore, with cut-out details in the sleeve cuffs referencing Moore’s own hollowed-out forms.
