Burberry World Live in Taipei & Opening of Flagship Store

1 - Burberry World Live - Taipei

Christopher Bailey hosted an event in Taipei on april 26th, marking the beginning of Burberry World Live - a fully immersive, touring, 360° Burberry experience.

Guests at the event, co-hosted by Taiwanese musician Jolin Tsai, included Jessica (Girls Generation), Daniel Henney, Patina Lin, Sandrine Pinna, Edwin Ji, Ran Chen, Sandee Chan, Sunny Wang, Rhydian Vaughan, Tony Yang, Janet Hsieh, Annie Chen, Larisa, Stella Huang, Yi Chen, and Quin Yi Lee.

The multi-sensory experience, seeded at the Burberry Beijing event in April 2011, is the first to blur the physical and digital dimensions of the brand in front of a live audience, bringing to life the Burberry worlds of British heritage, fashion, music and weather.

The first Burberry World Live event, staged in a custom cylindrical space, combined an 8 part 360° film, live musical performance and digital weather experience, all directed by Christopher Bailey

“We were thrilled to be in Taipei tonight to not only celebrate the opening of our new store here, but to also mark the beginning of Burberry World Live.

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.

It was incredibly exciting to be able to tell our story of British heritage, weather, music and fashion in this way for the first time against the vibrant backdrop of Taipei – we can’t wait to evolve Burberry World Live further as it tours cities around the globe later this year.”
comments Christopher Bailey.

Circular Snake Gold

3 drops

The aesthetic of this collection is encapsulated in its name: sinuous and winding shapes, drop-shaped and crafted with a python effect enclosing the Just Cavalli monogram. The jewelry is made of silver PVD and encircles the logo made from yellow gold PVD.

4 oasi

Hoops and rings of different sizes that meet, embrace and draw close, characterized by a zebra animalier print effect. The addition of small crystals give light to the 'Oasis' collection, characterized by elegant geometries.

5 animal

The Just Cavalli creativity is expressed in this interpretation of one of the most important inspirations of the designer: the animal world. The decorations in colored crystal in dégradé shades make each pendant a true accessory.
