Burberry‘s latest venture blends quintessential British charm with the bustling energy of New York City. The iconic fashion house has transformed NoHo’s Temple Bar into Knight Bar, a slice of London’s tranquil streets in the heart of a city that buzzes with life 24/7. The pop-up experience, which runs from today until November 16, invites guests to immerse themselves in an environment awash with Burberry’s new red check – a pattern that promises to be as iconic as its predecessors.
The Knight Bar’s décor is a nod to Daniel Lee’s Knight bag for Fall/Winter 2023, reflecting the storied legacy of the Equestrian Knight design, which dates back to 1901. It’s a celebration not only of Burberry’s Fall/Winter collections, but also of its deep-rooted British heritage and innovative design. Guests will enjoy a special menu curated by Norman’s, a North London cafe revered for its classic English delicacies such as fluffy scrambled eggs and crispy hash browns.
Burberry’s Chief Marketing Officer, Rod Manley, expressed his excitement for the fourth installment of Burberry Streets: “Following successful events in London, Seoul and Shanghai, we’re looking forward to celebrating the season as well as the launch of the Knight bag at Knight Bar.” This event is more than a nod to fashion – it’s an invitation to experience the world of Burberry, where British elegance meets cosmopolitan New York.
Adjacent to the Knight Bar, a window installation draws further inspiration from the vibrant streets of London. This display, also dressed in Burberry’s bold red plaid, offers a visual feast that complements the bar’s London-in-New-York theme. The Knight Bar’s special evening on Thursday will enhance this cultural exchange, promising an unforgettable evening where fashion and urban life meet.
Burberry Streets began its journey in London and has since brought its unique fusion of fashion, food and retail experiences to cities around the world. Each location was the backdrop for Daniel Lee’s first collection for Burberry, highlighting signature designs such as the famous check in a new shade of cobalt blue, the English rose print and the leaping equestrian knight. The Knight Bar in New York is the latest chapter in this journey, showcasing Burberry‘s commitment to fusing tradition with modernity, heritage with innovation.
