This Collaborative Collection From Burberry Allows You To Channel The Kris Wu Appeal

Acting, singing, composing, and now, designing. Are there any more talents hidden under idol-superstar Kris Wu's sleeves?
The rising Asian multi-talent created and curated a 19-piece collection with Burberry's Creative Director Christopher Bailey that includes graphic motif sweats embroidered with artwork of Wu’s personal tattoos and song lyrics.
Do look out for outerwear pieces like the classic leather biker jacket and a soft-touch plastic cagoule in Modern Stewart Royal tartan. The trench coat and single-breasted car coat have a relaxed-fit design and come in lightweight, weatherproof gabardine woven at the Burberry mill in Yorkshire, England. That's a stamp of approval for quality.
Burberry's signature checks will also be reimagined by Wu through accessories like the vintage leather baseball caps and leather-trimmed lightweight rucksack.
Here's an interesting fact: This is not Wu's first encounter with the heritage British brand. Burberry's relationship with Wu started in October 2016 when he was announced as the brand’s ambassador. In November 2016, Wu collaborated with the brand on the ‘Kris Wu edit’ featuring five looks curated from his favourite Burberry pieces and made his runway debut in January 2016 closing the brand’s London menswear show.
To coincide with this latest collaboration with Burberry, Wu released a new track titled ‘B.M’. The track shares references to the musician’s experiences with the fashion house.
The Burberry x Kris Wu collection is available exclusively at the Burberry ION Orchard store in South-East Asia and online globally from 16 December 2017 with new additions to the collection being introduced in January 2018.
