The virtual and interactive experience will replicate the brand’s flapship Ginza store and will serve as a space to present its Spring/Summer 2021 collection. Customers will be able to purchase items from the collection by selecting the digital items in store for one month, beginning from March 19. The experience will live exclusively on Elle Japan and Ellegirl Digital Japan’s websites.
Burberry is among the leading luxury players to have invested in digital innovation to merge digital and physical store spaces, with Louis Vuitton and Gucci also joining the market. As part of the new experience, Burberry has also collaborated with actress Elaiza Ikeda to create five styling videos which will appear throughout the virtual store and assist customer’s shopping experience.
