Burberry is celebrating King Charles.
The British brand, which holds a Royal Warrant, released a new line of illustrated silk scarves that feature the monarch’s beloved Highgrove Gardens throughout the seasons. Each scarf features drawings by Sammi Lynch, a recent Royal Drawing School graduate, and contain organic scarf and hand-rolled edges.
Per WWD, “The British artist specializes in painting and printmaking by way of landscapes with a focus on space, texture and light.” Lynch has been awarded an artist’s residency at The King’s Foundation at Dumfries House.
According to Burberry, “Sammi’s practice begins by drawing from life with pastels, these sketches then serve as the source material that she develops through a range of techniques, including painting and printmaking. Her work expresses lived experiences of the landscape through images that emphasise space, texture and light. Sammi has been awarded artist residencies in both Scotland and Italy.” Lynch shared the scarves on her Instagram, writing, “Happy to share that my Burberry scarves are now out in the world” with a sparkle emoji.
The collection celebrates Burberry’s shared values with the King’s Foundation, according to the brand; Burberry “shares the commitment of The King’s Foundation” to support the “arts, passing the legacy of craft and artistry to the next generation.” In fact, this is not Burberry’s first King Charles-themed scarf or collaboration with Highgrove; to celebrate the coronation, the brand released a limited-edition scarf showing Highgrove’s gardens.
This is now the third luxury fashion collection inspired by the gardens.
