During the presentation of his 2018 Spring/Summer collection in St. Petersburg, fashion designer Gosha Rubchinskiy has revealed his collaboration with Burberry. In a surprise move, the collaborative collection features eight pieces that Rubchinsky said reflects his interpretation of high end British fashion.
“Burberry has always symbolised the epitome of classic British style to me,” said Rubchinskiy. “Their timeless pieces are the perfect balance to our modern streetwear, creating a great mix. I’m very happy with the result of our collaborative work.”
Burberry chief creative and CEO Christopher Bailey worked hand in hand with Rubchinskiy on the collection, saying the brand welcomes the designer’s personal spin on its clothing.
“I have been a big supporter and admirer of Gosha’s creative work for a long time,” said Bailey. “He has an innate cultural sensibility and I was honored when he asked us to collaborate together for his new collection. His reinterpretation of some of our most iconic designs, feels exciting, new and relevant whilst paying enormous respect to their British cultural heritage.”
The Gosha Rubchinskiy x Burberry collaboration will be available in January 2018. On top of this announcement, Rubchinskiy’s show also featured a new line of headwear in collaboration with British milliner Stephen Jones, as well as a closer look at his collaborative athletic wear project with adidas Football.
