Riccardo Tisci presented his second show under the Burberry brand in the previous days. In the show, which is organized in Tate Modern Tanks art gallery, the “Tempest” themed AW19 collection is introduced. The collection that attracts the attention to conflicts of English culture and weather is presented in two different sections. Two different atmosphere as ‘traditional/formal’ and ‘modern/rebel’ dominated the show.
In this 106-pieced collection, which represents the new and avant-garde silhouette of Tisci, it is possible to see orange, red and green shades that sprinkled into the black and brown sovereignty. If we need to review the show in two sections, in traditional atmosphere more formal looks have created with suits designs. In the section that we fell under the influence of Autumn, we run into lots of leather, chiffon, satin and knitwear fabrics. In the other curtain of the show –modern atmosphere-, athleisure looks are at the forefront. On men joggers and puffers –especially the one with England Flag- and on women balloon sleeves and corset forms attract our attention. Tisci did not skip to give a place to traditional ‘Burberry Pattern’ and ‘Burberry Trenchcoat’ in his collection.
Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Natalia Vodianova, Anok Yai, Freja Beha Erichsen and many other models were on the runway, and names like Kacie Hall, Anna Ross, Lulu Reynolds are introduced to press as “new British faces”. Models’ hair, which looks wet and dominated by Art Nouveau movement, had the signature of Guido Paulu. M.I.A arranged the show music, which were as conflict as the show atmosphere.
Tisci who is moving Burberry’s look through a different direction for two seasons, seems like to keep surprising us. We will be excitedly following his next steps!
