Burberry shows its art-historical bent for spring 2017. Designer and CEO Christopher Bailey dipped into the Henry Moore Foundation archive, fusing the late artist’s surrealist works with Burberry’s quintessentially English identity. The results, as in this wing-collar shirt, prove the unlikely pair a winning combination. The graphic print was sourced from “Framed Heads,” a 1943 painting of stoic figures enveloped in pastel yellow and muddied earth tones. Bailey’s garments, much like Moore’s sculptures and drawings, explore the relationship between art and artisanship on the human form: Elongated sleeves and soft shoulders mimic the artist’s abstraction of the body—and prove the designer an earnest student of Moore.
