Burberry's Autumn 2020 Collection Gives a Sexy New Take on the Brand's Heritage Checks
Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2020 collection designed by Riccardo Tisci was held at Kensington Olympia for London Fashion Week. The impressive 107-look show, titled "Memories", is inspired by Tisci's own reflections from his early years as a young designer to the music, people, and memories of his world travels.
"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," shares Creative Director Riccardo Tisci in a statement from the brand. "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."
Much like Tisci's reflections, the Burberry A/W 2020 set included an actual mirrored runway accompanied by live curated performances by pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque and producer Arca. Top Boy's Micheal Ward, Cate Blanchett, FKA Twigs, Jacob Elordi, and Hunter Schafer were just a few of celebrities that were seated front row.
The runway was also star-studded, with Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Irina Shayk, and Joan Smalls ushering in Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2020 collection — which was nothing short of impressive. The 107-look collection combined women's and menswear. The overall aesthetic blended the brand's heritage, beige checks and trench coats, with some avant-garde, deconstructed silhouettes. Burberry's new season was a seamless marriage of Tisci's eclectic sensibility with the brand's rich British legacy that we know and love.
