Burberry channels regrowth and renewal with its Spring/Summer 2021 fashion collection; a refreshing change from the doom and gloom of 2020’s global events. Set in the great British outdoors, the heritage brand explored several themes such as deconstruction and reconstruction. Accompanying this presentation was a visual experience involving various contrasting shades and elements.
“The collection is called In Bloom because I was thinking about regeneration, about dynamic youth, about nature constantly recreating itself, always growing and evolving, always alive,” says Burberry chief creative officer, Riccardo Tisci. The show conveyed a fluid tempo, from the soft flowing silhouettes and patterns to the movements of the models themselves.
Meanwhile, colours like mariner orange and navy blue denote an aquatic inspiration; the smattering of mermaid tail prints, sharks and lighthouses further emphasises this. “Water is a symbol of that also – of newness, freshness and cleansing. And through water, life grows – water is what allows nature to bloom. Everything is circular,” Tisci adds.
