To celebrate the creativity of personal style, Elle teamed up with Burberry for a soirée on March 14th at the 57th St. flagship. Hosts of the evening were Editor in Chief, Nina Garcia, creative director Stephen Gan and photographer, Julien Boudet. Some notable attendees included Nina Agdal, June Ambrose, Coco & Breezy, Chloe Caillet, Florence Kosky, Nico Tortorella, Maria Borges, Pico Alexander, Eleanor Lambert, Juana Burga, Princess Mafalda of Bulgaria, Young Paris, Meredith Mickelson, Michael Avedon, Nausheen Shah, Zuzanna Bijoch and Emmy Rapp.

The event itself highlighted an image portfolio of classic Burberry trench coats, photos by Boudet of course, which were also featured in the March issue of Elle. The March issue is also notably Nina Garcia’s first issue as Editor in Chief. The trenches focused on in the portfolio are a tried and true Burberry staple, made from cotton gabardine, a fabric invented by Thomas Burberry himself in 1879. The coat comes in four different fits and lengths and as always, a timeless Burberry palette.

The image portfolio featuring the Burberry trench will continue to be on display at the 57th St. flagship until March 25th.
