An experimental sense of freedom continues as tailoring and outerwear are readdressed with sleeveless non-conforming silhouettes and abstract prints. Cotton vests and hoodies are refashioned with organic-shaped leather panels and cut-out details for a rebellious take on staples.

The Escapism of the Outdoors

Swathes of sand are contrasted against the minimalist and raw urban structure of the striking Millennium Mills as a slew of models cut a bold path through the set. Creating a moment of youthful positivity, the presentation gracefully centres on the power of the spiritual and the energy of music and movement.

A Transcendent Soundtrack

Riccardo Tisci pays homage to the electronic music duo Shpongle for the presentation, selecting their song ‘Strange Planet’ as the soundtrack. The music transcends beyond the everyday to an open, uninhibited space where individuals come together to connect. 

Listen to our playlist, exclusively curated by Shpongle for Burberry, to explore more of their psybient sound.

Natural and Fashioned

Throughout the collection, pieces are defined with proliferated strap details, while symmetrical rows of cargo straps are fixed to the front of coats. Figures once inspired by the body and the Burberry animal kingdom are expanded and abstracted, becoming organic, curved prints – evoking the flowing forms of camouflage.

Further encapsulating the energy of youthful rebellion, beauty looks by our Global Beauty Director Isamaya Ffrench mirror the faux pierced accessories in the collection. A reflection of the individuality and self-expression that inspired it.
