Last night, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey invited the brand’s fans and friends to the new Soho store to celebrate its opening, which marks the seventh Burberry brick and mortar in NYC. More than 110 partygoers filled the new digs, housed on Spring Street in a landmark building in NYC—the brand redesigned the space to include two new entrances and a second floor. The chief creative and chief executive officer showed off the men’s and women’s January and February runway collections, plus a few restored original trenches, to guests including Claire Danes, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lily Collins, Hugh Dancy, Naomi Campbell, Mario Testino, Zanna Rassi, Mazdack Rassi, and Pippa Cohen.
The night before (a.k.a. the Met Ball), Bailey hosted a Burberry table, seated by Blake Lively, Naomi Watts, Naomie Harris, Edie Campbell, Ben Whishaw, Mario Testino, and Ben Watts.
