Burberry x Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Spring 2018 Limited Edition Capsule Collection

After a successful first collaboration, Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy is back with a second capsule collection for Burberry. This Limited Edition Spring 2018 capsule was recently revealed as part of the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2018 runway show at Yekaterinburg’s Yeltsin Centre Museum. For this second collection, Rubchinskiy once again pays tribute to Burberry’s iconic house check and outerwear in this 13-piece unisex capsule comprising a reconstructed cotton-gabardine trench coat, oversized wool-blend duffle coats, oversized check flannel shirts, bucket hats, scarves, and shoes.

While the Burberry element is pretty clear in the collection, Rubchinskiy also left his mark: we see his initials “GR” as the logo on shirt pockets in place of Burberry’s equestrian knight logo. Most evidently, it’s the street style vibes that come across, and it’s no wonder, because the designer cited British youth culture and the “legacy of British football in Russia” (which he encapsulates in the look below), as inspirations behind the collection.

Christopher and I have a great understanding of each other’s work. After a strong SS18 collaboration and my photographic participation in Burberry’s September show through the Here We Are zine and exhibition, we wanted to take our collaboration one step further. It was important that Burberry be part of my new collection as it was one of the first iconic western brands to reach Russia after the Soviet collapse. It was very popular here in the 90’s, so much so that Boris Yeltsin can even be seen wearing a Burberry scarf in pictures from the time in the Museum where we presented the show.

Continuing our creative collaboration with Gosha for his latest show wasn’t even a question for either of us – we have enjoyed the process over the last year working together so much, that we both felt like there was so much more we could do together.

Gosha is not only an incredibly talented designer, he also has a unique sensitivity to and awareness of the “now”, which he captures so brilliantly in everything he does, from his collections and photographs, to the casting, and styling in his shows. It has been a complete joy and privilege to work with him so closely and we are all so excited to see our latest collaboration come to life on the runway and beyond.
