Tisci sure knows how to glam up the runway this year, from last year’s nature-inspired menswear collection; Ricardo Tisci comes back with an iconic Burberry Fall/Winter 2021 Womenswear collection that took place in London at Regent Street flagship highlighting the feminine energy.
Burberry ”s creative director has always been close to his mother and sister, looking up to them all throughout his years of growing up with great influence in his line of work. He mentioned in an interview, “My Mother–a single parent, raised me and my eight sisters with unfaltering purpose and pride. So, naturally, I have always been drawn to strong women, and in turn, they have also given me the confidence to express my own femininity…. They are not afraid to challenge expectations and I have always been in such awe of their determination. They are warriors.” He further elaborates that this FW21 collection is a “love letter to women.”
A remarkable sand backdrop featuring exceptional artists started with a bang by Shygirl’s glamorous entrance with an original spoken-word performance, featuring Tisci’s interpretation of modern femininity while encouraging self-expression. This is not your typically runway, spaces were seen along the runway to maintain social distancing while the show was ongoing. Each models feature Burberry’s signature trenchcoats in variety of materials.
Animal prints on bordered gowns, while the cape-sleeved styles flaunt fluid silhouettes—an overwhelming accentuated collection with gold lamé layers, sequin tops and more. When it comes to accessories, standouts consist of large bags – a continuous trend – in faux fur and shearling that was inspired by nature. Extra highlights function stylish wraparound eyeglasses, sculptural heels, extend tulle sock boots and more.
