The Burberry Autumn / Winter 2023 show is described on its website as: “Burberry's historical connection with outdoor exploration is reinforced by the show space, designed by Lee. Inspired by Burberry tents from the late 19th and early 20th century, the intimate interiors evokes a cosiness that provides warmth and protection from the elements.”
Last month, dubstep pioneer El-B released a collaborative track with Burial on Bandcamp dating back to 2009.
The five-minute track, titled ’Prophecy’, came simply captioned: “Made In 2009 - Straight From Nu-Levels”, on El-B’s Bandcamp page following the release of his recent anniversary package.
