Burberry Just Revealed a Fabulous Rainbow Print to Raise Funds for LGBTQ Youth Charities
Despite being most known for their raincoats, Burberry has long been heralded as one of the most important fashion houses in Europe. For 17 years, Christopher Bailey has been at the helm of the brand.
The Burberry February 2018 collection will be his last collection as president and chief operating officer, and it will include a very special nod to the LGBTQ community. The collection will feature a rainbow check, a pride print that was released today on social media. All of the rainbow pieces will be available to buy immediately after the show in London on Saturday.
On Twitter, Burberry wrote: “Today we reveal
#TheRainbowCheck and announce that @Burberry is supporting LGBTQ+ charities @AlbertKennedyTr, @ILGAWorld and @TrevorProject. The rainbow, a symbol of inclusiveness and joy, is celebrated throughout the February 2018 collection #BurberryShow #LFW”
Burberry called the LGBTQ rainbow “an emblem for optimism and inclusiveness,” and said it will feature prominently across the next collection. The rainbow check pieces will be available for purchase immediately after the show in London on Feb. 17.
