‘Memories’ – Burberry Autumn/Winter 2020 Show
This year’s Berburry event is named Memories, Riccardo Tisci’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection for the brand which takes inspiration from reflections of his early years as a young designer, whilst continuing to solidify key codes for the fashion house.
The collection captures Riccardo’s memories of the diverse places he visited, discovering who he was as a designer whilst developing his craft. From Italy where he was raised, to London where he studied, to India where he moved after graduating. The collection combines signature Burberry pieces – from trench coats, tailoring and duffle coats – with modern silhouettes, prints and fabrications.
The collection for men and women features classic Burberry trench coats, car coats, duffle coats and equestrian-inspired quilted jackets, alongside long collarless coats, tailoring, jodhpurs and fluted skirts – all in textural contrasts and new prints. Introducing the Olympia bag collection featuring a shoulder bag in three sizes and a crossbody bag. A supersized Pocket Bag, Society holdall and duffle bag in plaid also feature.
Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer, commented ‘Moving back to London recently – a city I first discovered as a young student – gave me a real sense of nostalgia. It was the place where I learnt to be myself and a city where I gained the confidence to be the man that I am today. I have this strong feeling of pride when I think about the early days of my career, when I was an emerging designer still learning my craft and taking inspiration wherever I could find it.
The memory of this special and formative time in my life is what has influenced this collection – from the places I visited and the people that surrounded me to the music that inspired me. It is this side of my personal journey that I wanted to blend with the codes and language that I have started to define here at Burberry.’
Revealed at the event was also the Olympia bag collection, featuring a shoulder bag in three sizes and a crossbody bag with Monogram jacquard, star-appliquéd suede and smooth structured leather options.
