Christopher Bailey partners with Chinese actor Kris Wu to create an exclusive curated collection

British luxury brand Burberry celebrated its launch of the Kris Wu Edit — a collaborative effort between the Chinese-Canadian actor Kris Wu and Christopher Bailey — with a posh party at SKP Mall in Beijing. The collection, which consists of five curated looks, was handpicked by the Chinese actor from Burberry's latest 'September' collection. Some of his favourite pieces include the Burberry trench coat tailored from English-woven cotton gabardine, a sports-striped knitwear, and the iconic Scottish-woven cashmere scarf. 

Aside from curating this collection, Wu also starred in the campaign. With a well-established relationship, it comes as no surprise that these two notable names are working together again. Wu previously made an appearance for Burberry's consumer show in London and even walked for the brand's 2016 menswear runway. "Kris is a modern day artist who works seamlessly across all these different worlds from music, to fashion, to film, which really resonates with us as a brand and which inspired me to want to work together," expressed Christopher Bailey on the collaboration.
