Burberry Creative Director Riccardo Tisci presents the Fall/Winter 2021 womenswear collection in honor of all women, including his beloved and inspiring mother. "Throughout my life, my mother has been this incredible force of nature. As a single parent, she raised me and my eight sisters with unfaltering purpose and pride," said Tisci. "So, naturally, I have always been drawn to strong women and, in turn, they have also given me the confidence to express my own femininity. They are not afraid to challenge expectations and I have always been in such awe of their determination. They are warriors."
A love letter to womanhood and the power of being female, Tisci's bold interpretation of the modern day woman for Burberry is one that breaks stereotypes and rewrites the conventional narrative. Set within the home of the British fashion house, at Burberry's flagship Regent Street store in London, the presentation opens with visionary rapper,DJ, and singer Shygirl reciting an original spoken-word piece.
Continuing to take inspiration from the themes already laid out at the Burberry Fall/Winter 2021 menswear show, the collection pays homage to the invincible force of Mother Nature as well as the British craft and the outdoor movements of the early 20th century. A nod to those who courageously ventured into nature in order to break the rules in their path towards a better future, the fluttering capes and flag references reflect Burberry's distinctive representation of the modern day woman with a twist.
With looks that reinvent tradition, give a sense of fluidity and encourage freedom of expression, Burberry's Fall/Winter 2021 women's collection carries a lot of strength and conviction seen across the models' confident strut through the space.
