Burberry have released a 200-song playlist on Apple Music to celebrate the brands most memorable moments from the last 17 years.
With the brands long-standing relationship with music and the famous live performances during the fashion shows, events and musical collaborations, the playlist gives fans a chance to enjoy the sounds that have shaped the houses history.
“Music has influenced me profoundly from a very young age and has always been an emotive companion in my life,” says Christipher Bailey. “This passion has resulted in me having a wide and varying taste in music with a particular love for British artists, both new and old. It is something I go back to constantly as a source of inspiration – from providing the soundscapes to our shows, to live performances at our events, to recording music videos of the newest musicians at the very beginning of their careers.”
17 Years of Soundtracks has been curated by Bailey and include artists like Adele, Pet Shop Boys, Elton John, The Cure, Dusty Springfield, Elvis Costello as well as George Ezra and Tom Odell and will soon have the latest song from designers final Burberry show on Saturday 17 February.
Bailey adds: “’17 Years of Soundtracks’ is the perfect way to celebrate the incredible roster of musicians that have helped shape my time at Burberry, be it directly through exclusive recordings, or through lending their songs as the backdrop to our experiences. This patchwork of tracks is a musical tribute to Burberry’s past, present and future, which I hope will not only introduce new music to audiences but also allow for some musical rediscovery.”
After 17-years as Chief Creative Officer and President at the British fashion house, Bailey will exit at the end of March. The soundtrack is available on Apple iTunes now.
