“The thing that excites me the most about Burberry is how inclusive it is – it appeals to everyone no matter their age, their social standing, their race, their gender,” Riccardo Tisci says in his notes first campaign for the British heritage house. Representing a still version of the great visual spectacle that was his first Burberry show, the images are an eclectic mix, reflective of that wide-appeal Tisci talks about. For this occasion, Burberry’s chief creative officer enrolled six photographers, representing generations of talent, to capture an excerpt from his extensive SS19 collection of 134 looks. Nick Knight, Danko Steiner, Hugo Comte, Colin Dodgson, Peter Langer and Letty Schmiterlow, all shine their own light onto the new Burberry styles, each bringing a different aesthetic and interpretation into the conversation.
As he stated backstage after the show, Tisci designs for the whole family, with something for each member in the mix. And it’s this cross-generational allure that comes across in the images – while Stella Tennant models the ladies-who-lunch side of the story, Fran Summers is strapped in the logo-ed nude dress with some Burbs creepers. Apparently, there’s nothing Mr Tisci can’t do and it’s only getting us more excited for his sophomore show coming up on February 17th.
