“It was very emotional. It’s our first live show after two years, so it was interesting not to work on a computer and to be alive and real”, said Riccardo Tisci, who held his show at Westminster’s Central Hall, a former church across from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.
With a live performance by the London Contemporary Orchestra, playing scores of Max Richter, Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, the men’s fashion kicked off Burberry’s collections, which includes two parts: one for men and one for women.
The men’s wardrobe was a celebration of the “dualities” of Britishness, according to the show notes, mixing urban references with country references, and traditional ideas with modern ones. Models walked the runway, wearing hoodies under their tailored suits, rugby shirts paired with rugged jackets. There was also of course the famous iconic trench coat of the British house, quilted jackets cinched at the waist, waxed coats with corduroy collars, oversized down jackets, duffle coats, as well as aviator styles that recall Burberry’s history as a manufacturer of uniforms for British soldiers. All was paired with hybrid baseball caps, leather sneakers and bejeweled and plaid padded headbands.
“The collection embodies an intangible essence that is Britishness, a unique fusion of honoring the beauty of the past, whilst also remaining focussed on the future with thankfulness, hope, and love”, Tisci also added.
