The Yorkshire-born designer debuted his AW23 collection for the British luxury fashion house yesterday (20 February) as part of London Fashion Week.

Daniel Lee, formerly of Bottega Veneta, presented his debut collection as the new chief creative officer of Burberry at a runway show staged at London’s Kennington Park. The show featured a soundtrack made up entirely of tunes by enigmatic UK producer Burial – from tracks such as U Hurt Me and Shell of Light through to newer offerings like Truant and Young Death – with the collection paying homage to the brand’s heritage. Take a look (and have a listen) below.

In 2020, Burberry’s previous creative head, Riccardo Tisci, called upon Arca for the heritage brand’s AW20 runway show. More recently, Burberry unveiled its new campaign, starring Shygirl – who previously featured in the brand’s 2021 Olympia bag campaign alongside FKA twigs and also in the AW21 womenswear presentation – in addition to former Crack Magazine cover star John Glacier and Skepta.

Shot by photographer Tyrone Lebon, the campaign also features model Liberty Ross actor Vanessa Redgrave, and England and Chelsea footballer Raheem Sterling. It served as Lee’s first campaign for the label.

Back in November, we spoke to Mala, Nia Archives, Loraine James and more for the 15th anniversary of Burial’s seminal second album, Untrue. Find out what they had to say.
