Just days after the last model appeared on the runway of the Week mode Paris, Burberry is holding an off-schedule fashion show to showcase its Fall/Winter 2022 collection.
Over the past two years, many designers have spoken about how the pandemic is affecting their collections. As people around the world stay home because of the pandemic, many see it as an opportunity to reconnect or strengthen their relationships with family, friends and neighbors. This new focus on interpersonal relationships is the basis of Creative Director Riccardo Tisci’s latest collection, in which he explores how we, as individuals, function in families or communities.
“It was important to me to discover what it means to be our origin in our identity and how the power of community and solidarity is what really gives meaning to the world, like the world,” Tisci said. “So I wanted this collection to convey that intense feeling, but also to celebrate the city we are in today; the city where Burberry grew up and formed a family.”
While Burberry has always been closely tied to its British roots, this season Tisci has been particularly inspired by her own community in London. “For me, London is a place of dreams, a capital city built on its heritage and united by a diverse community and an attitude that transcends boundaries, pursuing limitless potential.”
He continued, “This collection embodies the invisible essence of British personality, a unique combination of celebrating the beauty of the past, while focusing on the future with gratitude, hope and love”.
While the catwalk featured top models like Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and Bella Hadid, the spotlight was also on the stars in the front row. The guest list included Adam Driver, Carla Bruni, Davido, Devon Lee Carlson, Dixie D’Amelio, Eiza Gonzalez, Eliza Douglas, Honey Dijon, Jacob Elordi, Jaime Xie, Kate Moss, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Marina Ruy Barbosa, Naomi Campbell, Rebecca Hall, Role models, Slim Soledad and Simone Ashley,…
