Burberry Unveils New Partnership with Highgrove Gardens

The Third Collaboration Features Illustrations by Holly Mills for Trench Coats and Scarves

Burberry has announced its third project in partnership with Highgrove Gardens, the historic garden that surrounds the private residence of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The collection takes shape as a limited-edition capsule of trench coats and scarves.

The drawings for the scarves and linings of the trench coats were created by British artist Holly Mills, a graduate of the Royal Drawing School. Drawn at Highgrove Gardens during the peak of summer’s bloom, Holly’s vibrant illustrations capture the species-rich meadows and delphinium – the favorite flower of King Charles III.

Made in Italy, the four scarves contain organic silk and are finished with hand-rolled edges, ensuring long-lasting quality.

The Castleford trench coat is a new style introduced by Chief Creative Officer Daniel Lee. It is woven from gabardine, an invention by Thomas Burberry in 1879, at the brand’s mill in Keighley and is assembled at its factory in Castleford, Yorkshire. The Castleford’s outer uses 100% organic cotton and is available in two colors, Hunter and Ivy. Bridging the house’s history, this special edition of the new trench style references a selection of Burberry women’s summer coats from 1913 that featured floral silk for their linings.
