Bruce Chatwin & Burberry

In what some might see as a sign of the continuing commodification of Bruce Chatwin’s legacy, fashion house Burberry have launched a range of Chatwin inspired travel bags. Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s design chief, acknowledged the influence of Chatwin on his work last year at the launch of his menswear collection. He told the Evening Standard: “I found an old first edition book by Bruce Chatwin and became drawn in to his nomadic lifestyle. All the colours in the collection came from book covers and the more relaxed, easy spirit came from Chatwin himself and the nomadic spirit inside him.”
