After months of waiting, Riccardo Tisci’s first Burberry collection finally hit the catwalk. Burberry’s London Fashion Week show was the first under new chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci. He just made his LFW debut with a huge collection that clashed past and future. Tisci has combined the check and military-inspired styles Burberry lives and dies by with a touch of streetwear and ‘the new’.
The collection was all about classic femininity and modernism. There were trench coats and car coats with cinched waists, pleated skirts and pencil shirts, and pussybow blouses for the “refined” look, which was followed by a punkier, less studied style that Tisci said was meant to capture the rebellious spirit of U.K. fashion.
The message is clear: Burberry is for everyone.
Kendall Jenner may have skipped the New York runways this season, but she was back in action at London Fashion Week on Monday. Tisci previously served as Givenchy’s head designer for 12 years, during which he booked Jenner for both runway shows and ad campaigns and worked with all of the Kardashian-Jenners on countless red carpet looks.
