Burberry Spring/Summer '19 Collection

Riccardo Tisci showed his first collection as creative director for Burberry at London Fashion Week. He certainly made his mark on the brand. The Italian designer took over from Christopher Bailey earlier this year, having spent 12 years at Givenchy.

In true Burberry style he kept things quite classic, telling the Guardian the reasons behind his decision:

 
Burberry is such a big part of British style. It is like the flag of England. I was the first one to do streetwear on the catwalk - and now I think fashion has got too street.
— Riccardo Tisci
 

Tisci has long had a love of London, the city that inspired him to become a designer, so it was important for him to keep with the traditional style of Burberry and capture all generations. He called his debut collection ‘Kingdom’.

The trenchcoat was still very evident within the collection, along with pussycat bow blouses, silk dresses, pencil skirts, piped blazers, utility shirts and leather skirt suits. In all there were 134 looks. The main colour palette being muted beige tones.

Not many celebrities were seen on the front row, however, as a good friend of the Kim and Kanye, he managed to get Kendall Jenner to make her only catwalk appearance of this autumn. Models Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson and Irina Shayk also took to the catwalk for Tisci’s debut show.
