[B]urberry’s style resolutions for spring are rooted in youth culture. It’s time to dust off those bucket hats, because 90s streetwear is back according to the British label. And Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy’s collaboration with the fashion house – landing in stores 6th January – puts underground subculture firmly on fashion’s centre stage.
Outerwear pieces are reimagined in oversized shapes – from the traditional trench in two-tone honey and navy cotton gabardine, embroidered with Gosha’s initials, to the car coat with a check cotton-twill bib front and a reversible Harrington jacket. A bucket hat, baseball cap and duckbill cap, all with detachable ear flaps, come in cotton gabardine and check cotton twill. Unsurprisingly preppy-girl-ready check is celebrated throughout – from coats, a short-sleeved shirt and tailored shorts to Stephan Jones designed headgear.
“Working with Christopher has been a great adventure,” Rubchinskiy says. “Burberry has always symbolized the epitome of classic British style to me.”
“Their timeless pieces are the perfect balance to our modern streetwear creating a great mix,” he adds. “Our extended collaboration, from my SS18 collection to Burberry’s ‘Here We Are’ Zine and exhibition, really embodies what I feel is British culture today, a mix of iconic pieces and youth.’
