Always focused on the new Fall Winter 2019/20 collections, today we are going back to talk about London and its most representative house.
Burberry, now under the creative genius of Riccardo Tisci, was the protagonist of a revealing fashion show accompanied by an installation inside the bunkers of the Tate Modern museum.
Accompanied by the music of M.I.A. developed in two soundscapes specially designed for the occasion and that has accompanied the guests on a journey from the 90s to today, the two situations were the expression of the two moods of the show.
A more rigid, schematic, structured expressed in an sharp and clean location: the disposal scheme of the guests was determined by traditional wooden seats around the catwalk.The second part of the event was instead wild and involved over 100 young people climbing on the walls, a metaphor for the research of expressive freedom by Riccardo Tisci.
In fact, after his first collection for the fashion house, Tisci aim is to be better known and to identify Burberry more and more with London and its two faces: the austere and severe one and the young and rebellious one.
“Tempest” is a collection that, starting from the weather conditions of the city, presents new models for the boy, the girl, the gentleman and the lady.
For the girl protagonists were double-waist tailored trousers, eco-fur coats, petticoat dresses, Chelsea boots and sneakers with rubber oversoles.
The Burberry boy instead will wear the classic paneled trench but also quilted Montgomery jacket, shearling parka in and quilt duvets; the vintage check fantasy accompanies the animalier one, sweatpants becomes a strong and decisive garment if declined in leather.
The woman is characterized by a marked waist as in dresses and pleated skirts, she wears destructured trenches and ponchos with draping and kitten heel shoes with hand-applied fringes and crystals.The man is elegant in striped Montgomery or more comfortable when wearing the quilted vest on tailored outerwear.
For accessories, in addition to the new version of the TB Bag and the release of the extra-large version of The Society, Burberry added The Title bag with triple snap closure for Fall Winter 2019/20.
