Burberry will be gracing the shores of Shanghai with its latest edition of their trench-centred art exhibition, ‘Art of the Trench‘. The event will feature up-and-coming-supermodel Cara Delevingne and photographs by Trunk Xu.
The first edition of this exhibition was launched in 2009, wherein the London-based fashionistas were photographed taking their trench to the streets. Since then, the ‘Art of the Trench’ has hit Chicago, Sao Paulo, New Delhi, and now Shanghai.
Considering that there are already 71 Burberry stores in China (two of which are in Shanghai) it has been a long time coming for this iconic label to take the plunge in China’s biggest city.
Emerging supermodel, Cara Delevingne will hosting the launch of the K11 exhibition. The show features photographs taken by Chinese photographer, Trunk Xu who captured 50 Shanghainese fashionistas wearing various different Burberry trenches, each with a unique twist.
