Riccardo Tisci held the event at London’s Central Hall Westminster, across from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.
On a live performance from the London Contemporary Orchestra, playing scores by Max Richter and Michael Nyman, models walked, climbing on tables that had been set with crystal, silver and Burberry-branded plates.
The collection as we could expect mixed the aesthetic remarkably close to creative director Riccardo Tisci infused with the traditional design lines so familiar from the Burberry archives.
The leather stretch black bodysuits were worn underneath waxed cotton coats and Harrington jackets, while nods to the British countryside were offered with deep, “English” tones, like rich pine green, dark brown, and checks.
Structured silhouettes nodded to British aristocracy when the signature Burberry trench was reimagined as a floor length strapless evening gown.
Speaking on the collection, Tisci stated: “ It was important for me to explore what it means to belong, how our roots influence our identity and how the power of community and togetherness is what truly brings meaning to the world. Therefore, I wanted this collection to convey that intensity of feeling and to celebrate not only coming together but the city in which we come together today, the city in which Burberry grew and established a family. To me, London is a place of dreams, a capital building on its heritage and unified by its diverse community and an attitude of moving beyond boundaries – of pursuing limitless potential”.
