Coming off his much-lauded Spring/Summer 2021 foray on digital, recognized by the Fashion Awards for creativity, Burberry Chief Creative Officer, Riccardo Tisci, presented his first-ever menswear collection for Fall/Winter 2021, “Escapes,” today as a part of London Fashion Week.
“I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression,” said Tisci. “Enclosed indoors, I dreamt of the outdoors and its beauty, fueled by the thought of the creativity that comes when we are together.”
Built on the back of Thomas Burberry’s ethos of exploration and adventure, F/W 2021 is an ode to early 20th Century pioneers, explorers of the countryside, dreamers of a new reality. “I was not only drawn to the artistry of their craft, colors and shapes, but also to their strong sense of camaraderie and friendship,” said Tisci of his inspiration.
Aptly so, the collection is toned in the woodsy shades of Burberry beige, bark brown, oxblood burgundy, and for good measure, city grey – tipping the maison’s staid classicism into something a bit less disciplined, more errant and dynamic. Deftly layered pieces show to the enduring sartorial ethos of the house, marrying trench to skirt, skirt to pipestem – all carried down the catwalk on molded soles, crafted to resemble hooves in a nod to the Burberry animal kingdom.
Unexpectedly, slashed lycra bike shorts peaked below fringed silhouettes and the silver mermaid scales from spring’s ocean-inspired, mesh dresses were repurposed as a gilded, second skin in some looks. While plongé leather varsity coats and ceremonial, badge-like adornments add some frisson to a once prim Burberry, the trench and house beige still remain pillars of Tisci’s vision – seeing to it that tradition endures.
“This collection is an homage to the relationship between humanity and nature,” he said. “It’s for those who are defining their own path, whose strength and energy have inspired this Burberry collection.”
