The DK88 Bag Collection from Burberry

To say that we’re fans of the house of Burberry would be quite the understatement. A long time favorite of many, with Christopher Bailey at the helm since 2014, the brand has flourished tremendously, expanding its ever growing empire and bringing in a young, fresh take without losing the core traditions of this thriving heritage brand.

The new DK88 collection is the perfect example of another pillar of keeping with the heart of the brand while pushing forward for new and forward-thinking design. An extension of timeless fashion which will evolve with new styles, sizes and colors as time goes on, it’s named after the house code for the brand’s signature honey-colored gabardine fabric and features styles in Burberry’s new Trench Leather, paying tribute to the fabric at the very center of the Burberry brand. The prized Top Handle design will sit at the heart of the collection, defined by its timeless silhouette, oversize lock and sculptured handle.

To celebrate, the NYC store on Spring Street will be decked out to provide an immersive experience celebrating all things DK88 beginning tomorrow, May 3rd through the 15th. During this time, the store will be transformed with bursts of color, interactive displays and instillations while also providing services and products for their consumers like creating their own unique bag – choosing from 18 colors for the base, flap, handle, strap and hardware. Also, a limited selection of 50 DK88 Top Handle bags, each in their own unique color combination, will be available exclusively at Burberry Spring Street for the duration of this time.
