Take a look inside Burberry’s first New Zealand store

Burberry has finally arrived in New Zealand, opening the doors to its new store in Westfield Newmarket on Wednesday.

Located within the mall’s new luxury precinct, the store houses Burberry’s latest collections for men and women including styles from the Autumn/Winter 2021 runway, heritage trench coats, classic outerwear silhouettes and iconic bag styles including the Lola, the Pocket and the Olympia.

Burberry Auckland will feature a number of exclusive products including the iconic TB Bag in deep maroon, which references the initials of founder Thomas Burberry; and the Pocket Bag in deep maroon, which was inspired by an archival Burberry bag and reinterprets the original design by adding a front pocket.

New Zealand’s first Burberry store features the house’s new luxury design concept, created in collaboration with renowned architect Vincenzo De Cotiis who has used juxtaposing brutalist elements with luxurious materials to create a distinctly modern feel.

The store features display fixtures, plinths and unique furniture pieces designed by Vincenzo and constructed in a variety of textures from concrete to ceramics to high gloss finishes.

The core colours of the Burberry check – beige, black, white and red are explored and developed throughout the store.
