Ever since his appointment as Creative Director of Burberry, Riccardo Tisci has been changing the face of the British fashion house. After collaborations with the likes of Gosha Rubchinskiy and his controversial re-brand of the heritage company, his highly-anticipated Spring/Summer 2019 was somewhat of a mystery.
For the occasion of London Fashion Week, Tisci unveiled the latest for SS19. Amongst a slew of womenswear, the menswear opened with classic outerwear, strong suiting and the nova check – silhouettes that has made Burberry famous – with the addition of bulky hardware and strong embellishments. A relatively simple colour palette, for a fleeting moment it appeared that the brand was returning to its roots.
Shortly after, a bold palette of reds, browns and complex prints were revealed, injecting Tisci’s quintessential street edge to the mix. Cut-out t-shirts, relaxed loungewear and casual outerwear was featured, expertly layered with contemporary accessories, all emblazoned with quirky prints and Burberry’s new monogram. The director even threw in a Givenchy throwback, seen on the “WHY DID THEY KILL BAMBI” shirt.
And what’s more, pieces from the collection are available to shop for 24 hours only, from Instagram, WeChat and at Burberry’s London flagship store at 121 Regent Street in London.
