On Saturday night, Dazed and Burberry took over the Betsey Trotwood pub in Clerkenwell for a very British post-show knees-up – think gin (from Hoxton Gin), Burberry check matchbooks and fancy fish finger sarnies (thanks HIX!). As well as Burbs’ September collection (featuring stacks of tartan, pastel plastic macs and of course, those infamous caps), the party was also to celebrate the launch of the limited edition Adwoa Aboah cover of the new Autumn/Winter 2017 issue of Dazed. Naturally, the model and Gurls Talk founder was in attendance, playing co-host alongside Jefferson Hack, Christopher Bailey and Gosha Rubchinskiy.
You might think rappers are the fashionably late type, but the first guest through the door was Stormzy, decked out in a Burberry hooded tracksuit, and joined by girlfriend Maya Jama. The king of British grime’s renaissance held court in the smoking area with Loyle Carner and Julie Adenuga.
Unsurprisingly, man of the hour Christopher Bailey was in high demand all night, while Here We Are curator and Claire de Rouen books founder Lucy Kumara Moore could be seen chatting to photographer Alasdair McLellan.
