Burberry: Pre-Fall 2019
After 134 full-blown looks walked down the London Fashion Week catwalk in September, Riccardo Tisci’s vision of Burberry revealed itself as clear a rare, sunny London day. A brand for every member of the family – from the business gal on the go to her teenage, festival-going daughter, every archetype and age was covered in this extensive exploration of Burberry’s fashion dictionary. It truly was the opening of a whole new leaf, with an epitaph written in Tisci’s beautiful signature handwriting. And now, the first chapter is being laid out in front of us in the shape of their Pre-Fall 2019 collection.
Continuing the idea of “Burberry for all”, the brand’s Chief Creative Officer is extending the wardrobes of all different kinds of men and women. There isn’t just a singular aesthetic being pushed as the ultimate – everyone is given an opportunity to experience the brand in their own peculiar way. Classic trench coats and exquisite tailoring are joined by subtle infusions of activewear and solid, shop-friendly accessories. Actually, the whole collection is absolutely ready to be served on a hanger and sold to anyone, anywhere around the world. Global appeal with a set of widely recognisable keys – this is Burberry à la Riccardo Tisci.
