RiccardoTisci opened LondonFashion Week on Thursday with a runway show-cum-performance for Burberry embeded in the woods, integrating live music, art, dancing and, naturally, clothing.
“It began with a thought of British summertime; embracing the elements with a trench coat on the beach mixing with the sand and the water,”Tisci stated, in a news release. “I envisioned the people of this space, like the lighthouse keeper, and a love affair between a mermaid and a shark, set against the ocean, then brought to land.” He called the collection “In Bloom.”
That folklore equated onto the clothes itself through materials, shapes, strategies and colors that harken back to a nautical style– believe raincoat in rubberized cotton, fishermen-inspired pants, large chiffon and ruffled tulle layers and great deals of blues. More actually, some looks bear graphics of sea maidens, merpeople, sharks and lighthouses.
Burberry’s primary imaginative officer teamed up with artist AnneImhof on the launching, which saw designs and entertainers moving each other, choreographed in a manner that simulated the ups and downs of the ocean, as ElizaDouglas carried out live on a phase.
Other themes consisted of circles, which were seen on both the clothing and in the set. Tisci considered them “hugely symbolic,” as he “was thinking about regeneration, about dynamic youth, about nature constantly recreating itself, always growing and evolving, always alive.”
The spring line “is focused and refined — one vision, one story,” Tisci continued. “This is the essence of both Burberry’s identity and my own creativity. Reaffirming the codes of Burberry – my codes of Burberry, our DNA.”
