Last night, Burberry took to London Fashion Week to present its Riccardo Tisci-designed Fall/Winter 2020 collection dubbed “Memories.”

The show took place at Kensington Olympia’s National Hall on a mirrored runway, supported by the likes of renowned pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque, as well as the producer Arca who performed a live soundscape curated for the show. Together, the scene was atmospheric and referenced the new direction Burberry is heading in.

Tisci’s collection itself was inspired by the memories he’s accumulated from his travels between London and India, as well as everyone he has met on the way. Speaking on the collection, the chief creative officer said, “I have this strong feeling of pride when I think about the early days of my career, when I was an emerging designer still learning my craft and taking inspiration wherever I could find it.”

He added, “The memory of this special and formative time in my life is what has influenced this collection – from the places I visited and the people that surrounded me to the music that inspired me. It is this side of my personal journey that I wanted to blend with the codes and language that I have started to define here at Burberry.”

As a result, Burberry presented classic outerwear such as trench coats, duffles and tailored pieces indebted in the house’s signature beige color palette, and juxtaposed this with modern prints, techniques and fabrics. The result delivered fitted polo T-shirts covered in reworked Burberry check prints, an elongated and deconstructed shirt that could be worn like a coat, delivered in multicolored checks, a sleeveless trench coat, puffer jackets in bright red hues that are combined with traditional overcoats with the use of zips, and much more.

Take a look at Burberry’s ode to British heritage in its “Memories” FW20 collection in the gallery above, and keep an eye out for its release at Burberry stores worldwide later this year.
