Following the unveiling of its sharp Fall/Winter 2022 Collection in March, iconic British fashion house Burberry has tapped Amsterdam-based label Pop Trading Company for a capsule collection inspired by global skate communities.
A fusion of Burberry’s design DNA and Amsterdam’s skate-inspired style, reinterpreting the sense of adventure and freedom in every Burberry piece.
Ditching signature tones of beige and birch brown, the range instead opts for a palette of grey, black and red, paying homage to dark cityscapes in Japan where skating is restricted during the day and comes alive at night. Among relaxed silhouettes and liberated proportions, the collection encapsulates the imprints’ twin penchants for sartorial exploration.
Under Burberry’s codes, the line plants a new blurred Check in an exclusive colorway onto technical parkas, zipped jackets, silk shirts, cotton cargo trousers and a multitude of accessories. Elsewhere, reflective Check resides on classic car coats and an enlarged Icon stripe is jacquard-woven onto a grey melange cardigan.
Meanwhile, oversized T-shirts, hoodies, baseball caps and a blanket are doused in dual-branding motifs, some of which include the exact coordinates for both brands’ headquarters, while others provide a more playful remix with animated lettering. For footwear, the collaboration offers deep maroon leather loafers detailed with a metal logo medallion.
