Charles’s unusual collaboration with major UK fashion house



Luxury British fashion house Burberry has launched a new collection of scarves and trench coats in partnership with Highgrove Gardens.

The new pieces see the famous check lining swapped for floral illustrations inspired by King Charles’s gardens.

The drawings for the scarves and linings of the trench coats were created by British artist Holly Mills, a graduate of the Royal Drawing School.

She painted wildflower meadows in full summer bloom and delphiniums – the King’s favourite flower – at the monarch’s private residence in Gloucestershire for the artwork which was incorporated into the clothing.

The luxury oversized Castleford trenches come in two colours – Ivy with a wildflower printed silk lining, and Hunter with the delphinium lining – and cost £2,490 each.

Four organic silk scarves also form part of the collaboration, with two depicting vibrant multi-colour wildflowers priced at £370 each, one showing purple and blue delphiniums, and another yellow and blue delphiniums, at £120 each.

The fashion house said: “As a Royal Warrant holder and British heritage brand, Burberry shares the commitment of The King’s Foundation in supporting young British artists, whilst ensuring the legacy of craft and artistry is passed onto the next generation.”

The Highgrove X Burberry collection marks the third joint output of Royal Warrant holder Burberry and Highgrove Gardens, which is under the stewardship of Charles’s charity The King’s Foundation.

It’s available in Burberry stores, the Highgrove shops on-site at the gardens and in nearby Tetbury, and online.
