‘It’s the ability to switch creative fields and be transcendent that I find really interesting,’ says Lily. The model and actress has walked for the likes of Comme des Garçons, Saint Laurent and Miu Miu, and created her first performance pieces last year in a Munich theatre. ‘It was about all the different faces you have to put on as a woman. I transformed into each archetype of a female that I feel obliged to be every day, but to an extreme version. I felt this sense of home doing it, like it was everything I had been leading up to, in my own physical language.’ As part of the Burberry Monogram series, Lily – along with a group of other tastemakers – showcases a capsule collection of pieces, reimagined in the brand’s new monogram, created in collaboration with the graphic designer Peter Saville.

I think it’s the anonymity of it. There’s something about the empty space to create that I feel very at home in – I don’t need the traditional sort of framework of belonging, in a way. I guess for me home is about family, and finding a place within myself that’s true. My dad’s from Tunisia but he’s Parisian, and my mum’s American but grew up in London. I grew up between the two cities but never felt this sort of identity that was constructed around being a London girl or a Parisian. Wherever I am is my home, and whatever my job is my identity. I think life is about coming home to yourself and stripping away all the conditioning. Home for me is a lot more spiritual.’
