Casa - 10/6/22
Today, Burberry announced the opening of a new womenswear store at Bal Harbour Shops, an open-air luxury shopping mall in Miami, Florida.
Located on the lower level and curated in the image of the new Burberry global luxury design concept, the store offers visitors the opportunity to experience the rich and celebrated history of the British luxury brand in an iconic location.
Designed in collaboration with renowned architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, the global luxury design concept sees house codes reinterpreted and luxuriously realised. Taking inspiration from the evolution of the signature Burberry Check, the concept couples mirrored ceilings with intersecting metallic grids and roaming monochrome tiled chequerboard floors, each reflecting one another and creating a sense of openness.
At Bal Harbour, the Burberry Check is reflected on both the exterior and interior, with the store facade featuring a blend of stone and champagne metal arranged in the signature house pattern and finished with a subtle black edging. The core colours of the Burberry Check – beige, black, white and red – are explored throughout and in a variety of textures, from concrete and ceramics to high-gloss finishes, juxtaposing brutalist elements with luxurious materials to create a distinctly modern feel. Stone and glass vitrines punctuate the space alongside integrated red lacquered and beige mohair sculptural seating. Building on the language of gloss and tile, walls are decorated in a trench-coloured mosaic tile and reflective white lacquer, or covered in a sensual beige mohair, enhancing the feeling of openness whilst also offering a sense of intimacy.
Featuring an array of womenswear and accessories, the Bal Harbour store is the ultimate shopping destination for the Burberry woman. Visitors are invited upon entry to discover a selection of handbags and small leather goods, including the signature Lola and TB bags, each defined by the distinctive Thomas Burberry Monogram clasp – a homage to the brand’s founder. The Lola features quilting inspired by the signature Burberry Check, available in a range of colourways from classic black and tan to orange and peach pink.
A selection of Spring/Summer 2022 Pre-Collection womenswear is available at the store, including botanical sketch-print T-shirts and hoodies, bright Monogram map-print shorts and anoraks, T-shirts with label appliqué, dark birch brown chevron check oversized cardigans and mini skirts. The store also includes iconic Burberry rainwear in black, beige and honey hues are also available in the signature Burberry gabardine, including the Chelsea, Islington and Kensington styles.
Towards the back of the store, high-gloss beige mosaic and mohair are contrasted to create an intimate alcove from which to explore Burberry shoes. Showcasing a range of sandals and heels to the Arthur and Ramsey sneakers, the shoes are complemented by a selection of soft accessories, including scarves, capes, socks, headwear and more.
