For Burberry Spring/Summer 2021 season, Riccardo Tisci saw his collection as a promise of the better times with bright and bold colors and fresh and youthful looks.
In keeping with the times, the collection was livestreamed online and for the first time for a luxury fashion house on Twitch, the Amazon video live streaming service.

Created by German artist Anne Imhof, the collection took place in a sunny and lush forest of towering birch. Its inspirations did come not from the woods but from the sea and were described as ‘’a love affair between a mermaid and a shark, set against the ocean, then brought to land’’.
The 59 looks of the collection were described by Tisci as being free, romantic, classic and young. There were lots of bold primary colors, a departure from his beloved black, and Burberry’s trademark beige, and whimsical touches: naif hand-drawn mermaids, shells fish and stars floating over pieces while draped crystal-covered dresses glowed like shoals of little fish.
