The new print edition of Manuscript, in stores now, features an in-depth story about Burberry Acoustic, the music platform set up by the British super brand's chief creative officer Christopher Bailey as a way to support and nurture fledgling local musicians. "Music is something very close to my heart... something that I have always loved and is connected to everything we do," explained Mr Bailey in Taipei last month, where the brand unveiled its new 3D concept in celebration of the Taipei 101 Mall store, its largest in the Asia Pacific region, for which singer-songwriter Tom Odell performed. That level of support - the recording and promotion of new music, the touring of musicians to cities, as Burberry did with Life In Film when they performed at a Burberry event in Sydney last month, and brand ambassadorship - continues with today's release of the brand's autumn/winter Mario Testino-lensed campaign. Alongside British actress Gabriella Wilde is musician Roo Panes, both existing parts of the extended Burberry family. Mr Panes wrote and recorded a track, Indigo Home, exclusively for the release of the campaign, which is available global on iTunes from the first of next month. In the meantime, view Mr Panes' first Burberry Acoustic track, I'll Move Mountains, here.
