‘Tales of a Trench Coat’: A private exhibition with Burberry and ART REPUBLIK
An intimate evening of cocktails and trench coats with Burberry and ART REPUBLIK
On 20 April, ART REPUBLIK hosted an exclusive evening reception of cocktails, fashion, and art at Burberry’s ‘Tales of a Trench Coat’ exhibition at ION Orchard.
The traveling exhibition, which gives the public an insider’s look at the history and heritage of Burberry’s most iconic staple, first kicked off in Seoul before making its way to Tokyo and Singapore for two weeks only.
Alongside Heart Media CEO Olivier Burlot and ART REPUBLIK’s Managing Editor Nadya Wang, the 60 guests in attendance were treated to champagne and hors d’oeuvres as they toured around the exhibition space led by Burberry’s private client consultants. Dotted around the boutique were several interactive displays showcasing the craftsmanship, savoir faire and exquisite attention-to-detail that goes into every Burberry trench coat.
The highlight of the exhibition? A retrospective tableau featuring 14 of the most iconic trenches designed by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey from 2005 to present. At the event, fans of the brand also got the chance to try on pieces from the most recent February 2017 ready-to-wear collection (inspired by English artist Henry Moore) and have their new Burberry trenches monogrammed with the brand’s signature hand-applied goldwork cording.
