The Burberry staples of trench coats and beige make an evolved appearance in the collection
February 22, 2021: The recently presented Burberry Autumn/Winter 2021 menswear collection by Riccardo Tisci, Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer, honours a connection to the outdoors. The young and vibrant menswear collection reinvents traditions.
“For my first Burberry menswear-focused collection, I wanted to celebrate the freedom of expression. Enclosed indoors, I dreamt of the outdoors and its beauty, fuelled by the thought of the creativity that comes when we are together,” said Mr. Tisci.
With a focus on outerwear, the clothes are engineered to reflect motion and activity – with pleats, panels and fringes – as if moving in the wind. The tailoring has a sense of twisted classicism, while Burberry’s quintessential house codes – the trench coat and Burberry beige – are evolved.
The Burberry animal kingdom, a signature house code, is once again revisited through prints and shapes – a nod to the wilderness. Deer motifs inspire the silhouettes of knitted beanies, while boots and sneakers on moulded soles are also sculpted to resemble hooves. The collection’s distinct palette is tonal and rich, including Burberry beige, bark brown, oxblood burgundy, city greys and shirting shades of pale blue and pink.
“This collection is an homage to the relationship between humanity and nature, where we can break free and come together to discover new forms of expression. It’s for those who are defining their own path, whose strength and energy have inspired this Burberry collection,” explains Mr. Tisci.
