Burberry Celebrates Arctic Roots In Selfridges Pop-Up
This month, the Selfridges Corner Shop is trading Gucci for Burberry as it plays host to an immersive, abstract snow-scape from the British fashion house.

Available until March 29th, Burberry at The Selfridges Corner Shop houses an assortment of Burberry accessories including quilted Lola bags, phone cases and socks.
