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.”
