Burberry recently made the talk of the hour with its first live show after a two-year hiatus due to the circumstances imposed by the Corona pandemic.
This time, the house chose to present its newest in London outside the calendar of fashion month and in a controversial atmosphere.
The theater of the show appeared in the form of a table, which constituted the controversial element on this occasion. This table was decorated with crystal and silver bowls and plates, all bearing the logo of the house.
The models walked over this table while the audience stood around them, the hall was empty of any seats but decorated with a live artistic performance of a choir of about 100 people accompanied by the London Contemporary Orchestra.
The Burberry show included Burberry presenting its fall-winter ready-to-wear collection. The house’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, wanted his collection to be a celebration of the city of London. In the notes accompanying this presentation, he said, “It was important for me to explore the meaning of belonging, the extent to which roots influence identity, and how union gives true meaning to life.” “So I wanted this group to convey the power of that feeling and to celebrate the meeting and the city we are meeting in today.
This is the city where Burberry grew up and has a family of her own.” He explained that for him, London is a city of dreams, built on a rich heritage, and enjoying limitless potential thanks to the great diversity of its community members.
The looks were accompanied by a set of accessories that seemed strange, including hats, glasses, and gloves, while the bags and shoes maintained the classic touches of modernity. Check out some of Burberry’s fall-winter looks below:
