Riccardo Tisci’s Burberry AW21 womenswear collection was heavily influenced by Mother Nature.
The collection was a refined but playful affair, soft as well as strong: “there’s an underlying attitude… that’s very British; of being unique, eccentric and totally authentic,” Tisci noted. The palette was muted – beiges and tans, deep purply browns, whites and golds – with brighter colours appearing across graphic print dresses that have become something of a signature for Tisci during his Burberry tenure.
“I wanted this collection to feel truly emblematic of the power of feminine energy: a modern armour that captures its characteristic fierce aura,” Tisci said. To coincide with the presentation, Burberry revealed a campaign featuring Tisci’s muses from models (Kendall Jenner – and a Doberman), musicians (Erykah Badu and Madonna), artists (Marina Abramovic) and TV personalities (Maya Jama) – an ode to the characters that have influenced him over the years.

In her post she thanked Riccardo Tisci, the chief creative officer of Burberry and the former creative director for Givenchy Women’s haute couture and ready-to-wear lines. The two collaborated in 2014 on a Givenchy campaign that showed off Badu’s high fashion model skills.
