Burberry celebrates British culture as it returns to a live show in London
British luxury brand Burberry has returned to London Parade Friday with its first in-person fashion show in two years, showcasing menswear and womenswear collections celebrating British culture.
Following the digital presentations of past seasons due to the Covid-19 pandemiccreative director Riccardo Tisci said he mixed different moods for the fall/winter 2022 lines, playing with the brand’s classic camel trench looks.
“It was important for me to explore what it means to belong, how our roots influence who we are, and how the power of community and togetherness is what really gives meaning to the world,” he said in a statement, also paying tribute to London.
“The collection embodies an intangible essence that is Britishness, a unique fusion of honoring the beauty of the past, while remaining focused on the future with gratitude, hope and love.”
Models wore trench coats with chain detailing, country style outerwear, jumpsuits, detailed plaid skirts and twin sets paired with tall, tight platform boots.
The brand’s classic plaid print in camel, red and black appeared on dresses and pleated skirts, while Tisci used Burberry’s equestrian knight motif and oak leaf crest as prints or embellishments.
For the evening, he reinvented a trench coat into a strapless dress, proposed feather-trimmed dresses and black velvet shirts worn with long skirts and tuxedo jackets. Shiny metals decorated some designs.
Men’s clothes made-to-measure down jackets, aviators and jackets, high-waisted trousers with corset-style laces, rugby shirts and embellished sweaters.
Some outfits had off-the-shoulder yokes — faux fur, shearling, or rib-knit. Accessories included baseball caps. (Reporting by Marie-Louise Gumuchian; Editing by Alison Williams)
