Since its debut in the 1920s, Burberry’s tartan print has been undoubtedly iconic.
But now it’s getting a powerful makeover. The British design house just introduced a rainbow version of the classic print in support of LGBTQ+ charities.
A message on the brand’s site says, “Burberry is supporting three LGBTQ+ charities dedicated to broadening support for this community around the world. The rainbow, a symbol of inclusiveness and joy, is celebrated throughout the February collection.”
The print will be featured in Burberry’s February 17 show at London Fashion Week, which will also be the last for chief creative officer Christopher Bailey. In a statement, Bailey said, “My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to—and in support of—some of the best and brightest organizations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.”
