Burberry introduces its Autumn/Winter 2021 Pre-Collection, designed by Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci.
‘This is my uniform for the outdoors. My love for all the contrasting elements of nature has been explored and reflected throughout this collection, combining the romance and beauty of nature with utility and practicality. I have been inspired by the rich heritage of traditional British dress codes and given them a fresh perspective: tempering camouflage prints to blend harmoniously within natural environments, combining them with structured tailoring and romantic florals, broderie anglaise details and references to the animal kingdom. This collection is about mirroring the natural environments within its dynamic prints, colours and textures.’ Riccardo Tisci, Chief Creative Officer
The collection takes inspiration from Burberry’s connection with the outdoors which has sat at the heart of the brand since Thomas Burberry founded the house. A history celebrating kindred spirits, those who go beyond and explore the unknown. Riccardo continues to celebrate this story through juxtapositions: camouflage over trench coats and mesh bodysuits, as well as floral prints applied to field jackets, cargo trousers, short-sleeve shirts and jogging pants. An eclectic mix which explores familiar pieces and house codes fused with a sense of modernity.
