If you’ve been around the sandy beaches of Palm Jumeirah recently, you may have noticed something new along the shoreline facing the Dubai Marina skyline. Namely, an enormous Olympia bag from Burberry.
This supersize version of the warm tan bag with its gold-plated hardware engraved with the Burberry logo gives passer-bys a look into the meticulous finishes and craft of the bag.
The giant bag in sitting in Dubai is part of Burberry's campaign to take over global landscapes, and will remain the emirate until Saturday July 10th, 2021 - so if you're a fan of Burberry, or just curious about it, don't miss out!
Before it reached our sandy shores, the huge Olympia was last spotted sailing through the river Thames in London, starting at the Royal Victoria Dock before travelling at various locations for three days.
The Olympia bag was created by designer Ricardo Tisci and made its debut at the Burberry Fall/Winter 2020 show.
Its inspiration? An homage to London's Kensington Olympia station, which is also where the fashion show took place.
Easy transition between work and a night out in town
The Olympia bag is loved for its classic silhouette, transitioning easily from day to night with its almost athletic yet feminine, sculptural, and contemporary-looking design.
Tisci designed the leather bag to reflect that of the Kensington Olympia's arched glass roof. The bag comes with two shoulder strap options: leather or a chic chain strap.
It's one Burberry bag that's perfect for almost any occasion, and we can expect it to transcend seasons for many years to come.
