Designer Riccardo Tisci presented Burberry‘s Spring Summer 2019 Kingdom Collection, that celebrates individuality, eccentricity, diversity, and unique attitude of Britain, on September 17th at brand’s new show venue in Vauxhall, during the ongoing London Fashion Week. This is Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection for Burberry, since he was appointed Chief Creative Officer at British fashion house on March 12th, 2018. Among many supermodels who walked the show were Stella Tennant, Natalia Vodianova, Mariacarla Boscono, Freja Beha Erichsen, Irina Shayk, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Anok Yai, and Catherine McNeil.
“The new collection celebrates the diversity and the heart of England – the melting pot of creativity and style traditions from the punk and rebellious, to the formal and refined, all co-existing together. Capturing the breadth of what British culture represents today, the collection defines the visual language and lexicon for Burberry through new house codes and accessories.“
“I was thinking a lot about journeys as I started putting together my first Burberry collection. From my personal journey back to London 20 years after I showed my graduate collection here, to how far I have come. I was also inspired by how much London – the city that made me dream to become a designer – has evolved. This show is a celebration of the cultures, the traditions and the codes of this historic fashion house and of the eclecticism that makes up the beautifully diverse United Kingdom.” – Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
