Lessons From Burberry’s AW’20 Show

The Burberry brand has been reinvented from years past, and since then, the italian creative director of the brand – Riccardo Tisci has proved his understanding of the British culture and style. The brand has now grown from just a British brand to the best of Italian and British culture.

Riccardo Tisci is an italian born creative director to Burberry, but he grew up London. This has lengthen his knowledge of British culture and style, he spoke during an interview on how he met Jake Chapman at an industrial club night in Milan. “He was so cool… and he painted this picture of London – told me it was the place to be, that there was freedom there,” he once recalled. “And the moment I put my feet here, I fell in love. I realised, this is my place.” This season, he mined his past to inform a collection that he suggested was his most personal yet. “It took a few seasons to find my way at Burberry – it’s quite a big company – but this is the collection I think represents me most, so I wanted to do something that related to my past,” he expressed backstage.
