«With my first Burberry men’s collection, I wanted to celebrate freedom of expression. During this period spent indoors, I dreamed of the beauty of open spaces, driven by the thought of creativity that comes when we have the opportunity to be together. “ commented Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer.
“With this dream in mind, I was fascinated by British craftsmanship and the dynamics of the early 20th century when people ventured to explore unknown landscapes. They have formed communities with a deep respect for nature and for the outdoors, trusting in a future full of possibilities. I was not only attracted by the artistic skill of their craft, by the colors and shapes, but also by their strong sense of solidarity and friendship.
This collection is a tribute to the relationship between humanity and nature, where you can free yourself and meet to discover new forms of expression. It is designed for those who are defining their own path, whose strength and energy have inspired this Burberry collection. “
Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
The Burberry fall winter 2021 men’s show challenges and delicately reinvents traditions, inviting freedom of expression. The collection is dynamic and young, vibrant and alive. Outerwear is vital; clothes designed to reflect movement and activity, with pleats, panels and fringes, as if moving in the wind. Multi-layered looks fit unexpectedly on the body. Tailoring has a twisted sense of classicism, while the brand codes, such as the trench coat and the Burberry beige, have evolved into a new perspective.
The trench coat is combined with the Harrington jacket. Coats in cotton gabardine and wool twill are frayed and closed by silk foulard belts. Duffle coats are updated in striped wool with reconstructed pockets and cut silhouettes with ingot fringes and bold prints. Knitwear and outerwear come together in unexpected designs like the V-neck of a sweater replicated on a trench coat. The reconstructed college jackets are made of plongé leather and cashmere cotton with the “B” logo.
Bullion fringe adds a sense of ceremony to tunic shirts, silk crepe de chine waistcoats and tailored trousers. Shirt dresses and pleated skirts are meant for movement. The animal kingdom of Burberry, one of the house codes, has been revisited with animal prints and shapes and garments in eco-fur.
Between the accessories seen in the fashion show a new men’s messenger bag, whose oversized silhouette features a reconstructed strap in a union of sartorial and hiking influences. The new sneakers in leather they feature molded soles, sculpted to resemble deer hooves. The deer motif also inspires the shape of the knitted caps.
Among the shades of Burberry beige, bark brown, oxblood burgundy, city grays, light blue and pink, we find prints and motifs that pay homage to the world of nature, such as photographic images of animal fur. While, abstract works of art the elementary in bright colors alternate with the Thomas Burberry monogram in jacquard.
