Burberry | AW19

This season of London Fashion Week marked the first season anniversary for Italian designer, Riccardo Tisci. In celebration, the fearless leader returned triumphantly to launch his second Burberry collection.

Having taken over from Christopher Bailey back in March 2018, the designer has held firm on his mission of giving the iconic London brand a new lease on life.

The opening presentation included a whopping 106 looks. You could navigate the Burberry collection by splitting it in two: the first part was directional streetwear and the second part polite daywear and formal attire.

The something-for-everyone umbrella Riccardo Tisci has unfurled over the British house is segmented into “the girl, the boy, the lady and the gentleman” as his show notes declared, a collection to transcend the boundaries of traditional fashion and culture. “An older generation has different needs than a younger generation.”

It’s been widely said that Tisci, an Italian, let his view of British society colour every stitch of his London show, a statement for and against the heritage of the brand that he imagined – the divide was a little jarring at times as the all too prevalent stereotypes walked the walk pitching streetwear vs. formalwear, sportswear vs. tailoring, woke vs. conformist…

The show provoked questions and debate which, without a doubt, Burberry were counting on.

However, the iconic British Fashion House still came a cropper…

Scandal of the show…
Burberry has publicly apologised and removed a “noose” from its collection after model Liz Kennedy who walked in its London Fashion Week show spoke out about the controversial accessory causing offence.
