A symbolic sun rises, bringing a new dawn of opportunity. Discover BURBERRY Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection, that sets out a bold interpretation of modern femininity; shedding archetypes and readdressing preconceptions. Set within the home of the brand, at Burberry’s flagship Regent Street store in London, British artist Shygirl introduced the presentation with an original spoken-word piece.
Mother Nature is what inspired Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci for this new collection, that carries a sense of unflinching pride and conviction. With a sense of fluidity, looks reinvent tradition, twist classicism and encourage freedom of expression.
Throughout my life, my mother has been this incredible force of nature. As a single parent, she 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.
I wanted this collection to feel truly emblematic of the power of feminine energy: a modern armour that captures its characteristic fierce aura. There’s an underlying attitude to the collection that’s very British; of being unique, eccentric and totally authentic in how you express yourself. This presentation is a love letter to women and a celebration of their incomparable strength.’
– Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
The collection reflects Burberry’s distinctive character and attitude, reshaping hallmarks with a fresh perspective for the modern woman of today. This energy is encapsulated in a dynamic electronic soundtrack, rallying the models as they move confidently through the space.
The collection pays homage to the indomitable force of Mother Nature and the widespread British craft and outdoor movements of the early 20th Century. With fluttering capes and references to flags, the collection nods to these groups who daringly ventured into nature, breaking with convention in their journey towards building a better future. This sense of optimism is palpable throughout the collection with showers of unexpected brightness – the rainbow shining through the rain.
