Known as “Burberry Streets,” this innovative marketing strategy has unveiled a series of city takeovers, with London as its inaugural destination. In a balanced blend of the brand’s forward-thinking vision and rich heritage, this British luxury icon has curated a series of immersive experiences and installations that have been unfolding across the streets of London. From Norman’s Café Pop-up to its takeover of Bond Street’s underground station, all these carefully crafted encounters have been showcasing the brand’s signatures, such as seasonal check in knight blue, rose print, and the newly redefined Equestrian Knight Design.

Coinciding with the highly anticipated Daniel Lee’s inaugural collection for the brand as well as London Fashion Week, this collection and initiative symbolise a milestone, marking a new era and vision for the brand.
Without being limited to one location, ‘Burberry Streets’ is planning on scattering the brand’s iconic symbols throughout the city, in the form of flags on Bond Street, chalk stencils that will adorn the pavements and parks with the Equestrian Knight, and even the iconic taxis will be wrapped in Daniel Lee’s rose print. Creating an immersive experience filled with prints, audio-visuals, and designs for the audiences.
