Burberry kick-started the first in a series of global events last night with a multisensory experience in Taiwan that combined the brand’s pillars of British heritage, weather, music and fashion.
Staged in a custom cylindrical space, it included an eight-part 360-degree film featuring hologram Burberry models, digital rain that seemingly poured from the ceiling, and a live performance from British musician Tom Odell. The initiative follows on from the brand’s tech extravaganza in Beijing in 2011, and likewise celebrates the opening of a new flagship store; this time in Taipei’s 101 shopping centre.
Burberry World Live, as the series is being called, will now tour to other cities, including London, Hong Kong and Chicago.
“We created the Burberry World platform for our online community and tonight that came to life when we connected our guests with everything the brand stands for today, using original content to take them on an emotive and sensory journey, blurring the digital and physical dimensions of our brand,” said chief creative officer Christopher Bailey.
